Don't settle for a lack of police presence in your village. 

Report ALL anti-social behaviour and crime as follows:

  • Call 999 - An emergency is when someone is at risk of getting injured, bring threatened or a crime is being committed and is in progress.

  • Call 101 - report crimes which have already happened, where there is no sign of an offender.

  • Email - huboffice-EFD& - This email is monitored daily, and is for reports of issues / concerns / problems or asking advice. Use this email to formally request a pre-planned dispersal order.

Your Parish Council is actively involved in doing what it can to support residents with their concerns, and ensuring your voice is heard.  For further information, contact the Clerk at 01992 523825 or via email to
