Environment Judith Balding • Footpaths and Bridleways • We have now had confirmation for funding for the Lengthsman Scheme from HCC. • A full time Lengthsman will be appointed to start work, for all the Parishes included in our Scheme, from next year with Penton Mewsey PC as the lead. Under the Scheme, the main duty for the Lengthsman will be to cut the footpaths. We will continue with the arrangement we have until about October and MPC will be reimbursed for the costs for cutting the footpaths this year from the Lengthsman Scheme funding. • HCC are not scheduled to cut the BOAT by Sunnybank until August, but after it became very overgrown in the past few months, MPC had a kind offer from Peter Batten of Willow Farm to cut it for us. He did a very good job and we would like to thank him for giving up his time to do it free of charge. • A Footpath Representative is required

Neighbourhood Watch Report • Looking back over the past few months the problems seem

Neighbourhood Watch Report • Looking back over the past few months the problems seem to be the same and I • • • wonder if anyone listens to the repeated warnings. Rural Crime The main cause for concern, highlighted in several recent alerts, is theft from parked vehicles. People still leave valuables, particularly handbags, often in view, when they leave their cars to walk the dog. Thefts from out houses and garages are a close second Scams As a follow up to the Sky refunds scam I spoke to the Sky salesman in the Chantry centre. He confirmed that Sky do not have a ‘refunds department’ but sadly told me about an elderly lady who contacted him in tears after having been swindled out of a significant sum of money. The ‘Council Tax’ fraud has been going the rounds in Sussex, the victim is asked to make an up-front payment to secure a council tax refund. The online vehicle sale fraud. Fraudsters advertise vehicles and machinery for sale on various online selling platforms. The victims, after communicating via email with the fraudster, receive a bogus email which purports to be from an established escrow provider who will keep the payment until the buying and selling parties are both happy with the deal. Needless to say the money goes straight to the fraudster.
