Friends of St. Andrews North Burlingham.

               Friends of St. Andrews North Burlingham.

There will be an informal meeting on Monday 26th September at 7pm in St. Andrews Church, North Burlingham for supporters and friends of our church. Our aim is to encourage as many local people to support the church in any way possible so that its use can be increased in the community. Eventually this will include putting in a water supply, kitchen and toilets.

At the moment we are more concerned about housekeeping of the church such as gardening, cleaning and open and closing, as we would like the church to be open to the public more frequently.

We are pleased that Norwich Archives have agreed to put on an exhibition of old records of St Andrew and St Peter at the meeting. These date back to Oliver Cromwell’s time and are apparently in good condition. The exhibition will continue during the week from 10 to 3pm on Wednesday and Friday for those unable to attend the meeting and is a chance not to be missed.  Light refreshments will be provided.

Everybody is welcome and we look forward to seeing you.

Police warning about bogus callers

Officers have received reports of incidents in the Norwich, Blakeney, Great Yarmouth, Horning, Poringland and Costessey areas. In each case a man has knocked at the door claiming to be there to either read a gas or electricity meter, or to check the boiler.

 Police are reminding householders to be vigilant when dealing with cold callers and offer the following advice:

 Close and lock the back door before answering the front door.

  • Use a spy hole or window to look at the caller before answering the door.
  • If you do not recognise the caller, speak to them through the closed door.
  • If the caller is selling something or offering work on your home, tell them you are not interested and ask them to leave.
  • If they do not leave or you need assistance- call the police.
  • If the caller is valid, always ask for proof of identity. Phone the company or organisation the caller claims to be from while the caller waits outside.
  • Tell someone you trust about the uninvited callers to your home.
  • If necessary, report it to police with a description of the people involved and details of their vehicle if possible.

To report suspicious activity call Norfolk Constabulary on 101. In an emergency always dial 999.

Police report

Fake Irish notes

Police are warning retailers to be vigilant after reports of fake Irish notes being used in stores across the county.

There have been a number of reports today (Wednesday 31 August 2016) of fake Irish £20 and £50 notes being handed over at stores in the North Norfolk, Kings Lynn and Great Yarmouth areas.

Retailers are being urged to be vigilant and to take crime prevention measures, such as using a UV light or a testing pen which will indicate whether a note is genuine.
