Last night over one thousand nine hundred people gathered on the Parkway outside our Village Hall for another very successful Bonfire and Firework Spectacular
It has been a fraught day for the organisers with fears of strong winds and rain, in the event the winds subsided and the rain held off making a memorable night for all who attended.
Thanks to Weoley Hill Cricket Club, Scouts and Village Council for the incredible effort went into creating another unforgettable night. The whole event takes barely an hour and a half, but over six months hard planning and organisation goes into making sure it runs both smoothly and safely.
Sadly I have to report that con men are active in the area.
Last week two men saying they were from the water board tried to gain access to a pensioners house in the area, when challenged they left and the police were called.
This is useful advice from Age UK:
If someone does come to the door, it’s important to remember the following:
Only let someone in if you’re expecting them or they’re a trusted friend, family member or professional. Don’t feel embarrassed about turning someone away.
Don’t feel pressured. Don’t agree to sign a contract or hand over money at the door. Think about it and talk to someone you trust.
Check their credentials. You should always check someone’s credentials – a genuine person won’t mind. You can phone the company they represent or check online, but never used contact details they give you.
Don’t share your PIN. Never disclose your PIN number or let anyone persuade you to hand over your bank card or withdraw cash.
Call the police.Call the police non-emergency number 101 if you’re not in immediate danger but want to report an incident. But call 999 if you feel threatened or in danger.
