Crime Prevention Advice (supplied by Essex Police)

Spring has sprung – what crime does it bring?
The migration into the garden has commenced with all the extra jobs that it brings. Unfortunately with the
spring season also comes seasonal crimes too and we need give it a little consideration to prevent it and
help others from becoming victims too.

New tools and lawn mowers:
Be mindful of how you dispose of the packaging to your new purchases; don’t advertise it to the thieves
and burglars with your empty boxes on display outside for roadside collection. Fold boxes inside out or
break them up and put them in bag for collection.

Property marking:
It’s a good deterrent if your property is visibly security marked with your house number and post code
such as www.creproducts.co.uk or labelled if a forensic property marking system is used such as
www.smartwater.com or www.selectadna.co.uk. You can also record the serial numbers of any property
free of charge at www.immobilise.com . If your property does get stolen with property marking and/or
recording on Immobilise there is a greater chance of you getting it back.

Working in the garden:
It is easy to get engrossed in what you are doing when working in the garden, if the house is empty it is
wise to close and lock the door (don’t forget the key though!). Put tools away after use, “it add insult to
injury” if your tools are used to break into your house.

Shed security:
With sheds coach-bolt and plate the padlock hasp sections to the frame and door, use a good quality “Close
Shackle” padlock or a key operated mortice lock; don’t forget the hinges ensure they cannot be unscrewed.
Protect windows with a wire mesh and fit a curtain or white wash the windows to prevent prying eyes.
Products that are fit for purpose can found by looking for the "Secured by Design" or "Sold Secure" logos,
or on their websites www.securedbydesign.com or www.soldsecure.com .

New plants:
Larger plants can be secured to land or rootball anchors, or plant through chicken wire covering the area
with soil. Cement or bolt down containers to the ground. Your local garden centre or DIY store should be
able to help.

Rogue Traders:
The rogue trader also takes advantage of the fine weather to con the unsuspecting. Although you may
think you would never be taken in by them they can be very convincing especially to the elderly or
vulnerable “I am laying some gravel up the road and see you need some……” “I notice your trees or
shrubs need a prune…” so many stories. Look after the elderly or vulnerable near you and step in should
you need to with a little advice, also another face sometime puts the rogue trader off. Need a trader and
have no personal recommendations, look at www.buywithconfidence.org.uk for traders checked out by
Trading Standards.

“Our beloved Raja has left us with a great, big void! He led us for walks without a lead!!
If he could speak he would have thanked all those school children who have given him
hugs and played with him in the park, in the last 11 years! He gave us joy and love to so
many of our family and friends, who join in our grief, at losing such an intelligent,
obedient and affectionate dog. We will miss him and love him forever. RIP from his
family: Kartik, Mani, Mita & Ajay”

P.S. We would happily look after your pet while you are away on holidays or away for
a day.

16003 Dec 2016 history originated on three separate sites each with
its own special interest. These were Passmores
House, Mark Hall and St Andrews Church/
Nettleswell Farm.

Ryan's presentation included illustrations of

many old maps showing the former manors of the

area and some of its historical excavations

including those of Roman remains, as well as some

of the social highlights of the New Town's

develo pment.

It was in 1990 when these scattered sites were
eventually combined with the existing Cycle
Museum and became the Museum of Harlow. Staff
today include gardeners tending the walled garden
and established floral displays there.

Today the Museum has more than 80,000 items in its
archives including long defunct local newspapers and
many artefacts representing the wide and varied
history of the area. After answering several questions,
Mr Karolak was thanked by the Chairman to warm
applause from the audience for an interesting and
lucid illustrated presentation. Members expressed
considerable interest and it was decided later to make
a visit to the Museum, which has now being
arranged for June 21st . Please contact a member
of the society for details.

Notes from the Village Vet

Talk on how to give Pet First Aid

Many of us are trained in first aid for
people but what about for our pets? Would you
have a clue what to do it you came across a cat that
had been hit by a car, a dog with a cut foot or even a
rabbit with heat stroke?

We are inviting clients to attend a free Pet First Aid
talk to cover some of the common types of problems
we see. The talk will take place at the United
Reform Church Hall, Chelmsford Road, Hatfield
Heath CM22 7BH (almost opposite the Hunters
Meet) on Tuesday 28th June 2016, 7.30pm for a
prompt 8pm start.

Places will be limited and so please book your place
by emailing the address below (preferable) or by
phone or text. The talk will last for about an hour
with time for questions. You never know when your
knowledge of first aid could save an animal's life!

Sponsorship for the History Society
Exhibition

All readers will see the
advertisement (opposite) for the
Hatfield Regis Local History Society’s
exhibition centred on the Great War (8-
11 July). This exhibition will be free for
all visitors but it will cost the Society a
great deal of money, for which we have
applied for a Heritage Lottery Fund
grant. Unfortunately we will not know
whether this grant application will be
successful until the week before the
exhibition, by which time we will have
committed most of our funds. For this
reason we are appealing to the regular
advertisers in the magazine to sponsor
the exhibition, at £50 each. The names
of the sponsors will be displayed in the
Institute during the run of the
exhibition, which we hope will attract a
large number of visitors, both from the
locality and elsewhere. Any advertiser
interested in becoming a sponsor should
contact me, the Treasurer of the HRLHS,
at [email protected], to discuss
details.

The Queen’s 90th Birthday

A few dozen villagers, and a dog braved the biting wind to turn up at the Village Green on Thursday
21st April to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday by lighting one of over 1,000 beacons across the
country.

'

Some of the children dressed up in varying versions of the Union Flag and looked very good as
everyone cheered the lighting of the beacon.
The beacon was lit by Pat Boswell who was given the honour because she herself had just celebrated
her birthday. Thanks go to Michael Hockley for the organisation of the event.

“This was indeed a momentous occasion and I am glad to say that Hatfield Heath honoured Her
Majesty in this way,” said Michael Shine.

Michael McIntyre made one young man's dream come
true during his Big Show on BBC One tonight.

Electrician Adam Heapy (who lives in Hatfield Heath and
works for Broad Oak Electrical) was tricked into appearing
on the show with co-worker Steve after his wife Emma set
him up. Emma told Michael that her husband was an
aspiring singer, so they decided to give him the chance to
sing in front of a live audience during his new show.

Asking him to fix a fault at the theatre where the show was
being filmed, Adam was gobsmacked when he walked straight out onto the stage with Michael waiting for
him. As Emma clapped from the crowd, and Steve cheered from backstage, Adam couldn't believe he had
fallen for the prank.

Michael then asked him if he would perform for the audience at the end of the show, with Adam agreeing to
do so. But the surprise didn't stop there for the singer, with one very special guest appearing on stage with him
when he performed. As Adam began performing James Morrison's hit “You Give me Something,” he was
completely unaware that the man himself was about to come on stage.
Creeping up behind Adam, James played guitar along to the track as Adam continued to sing, unaware he was
performing with one of his favourite artists. It wasn't until the crowd began pointing behind him that Adam
finally turned around and was completely gobsmacked by what he saw.
Wife Emma said “We are all so proud of him and it was a very emotional moment when he walked though a
pretend door onto a stage with Michael in front of 2,500 people. He then went onto sing at the end of the show
and half way through the song, James Morrison surprised him on stage. It was fantastic!”
