Sorry but for the last few months, due to difficult personal circumstances, I have been unable to find the time or enthusiasm to update this website. My circumstances are now improving and I will try and find time to 'catch up' by the end of September. Thank you for your patience.

 Anti Social Behaviour (ASB)
Our Rugby Rural Central neighbourhood police have indicated that reported ASB in Wolston has fallen by about 30% in the last three months, but at the Community Forum meeting on the 17th September it was decided that ASB in Wolston would still remain as one of their three priorities for the last quarter of 2015 (the other two are fly tipping at Coombe Fields and ASB in Long Lawford).

Secure your shed !
Our local police have advised of a spate of burglaries in the rural villages, largely targeted at garden sheds, garages and cars. In many cases these have not been properly secured and the police have requested that all residents please make sure that your property is fully secured to make this theft more difficult. If you do see suspicious activity please call the police non-emergency number 101 to report it.

Police 101
You should call 101 to report crime and other concerns that do not require a 999 emergency response. For example, call 101 if:
X Your car has been stolen;
X You observe anti-social behaviour;
X Your property has been damaged;
X You suspect drug use or dealing in your neighbourhood.
Also call 101 to report a minor traffic collision, give the police information about crime in your area or to speak to the police about a general enquiry. All calls to 101 are logged and given a reference number, and by calling 101 you help our local police to understand how and where to target their resources. All calls to 101 cost 15p.

Alternatively, for absolute anonymity, call
Warwickshire Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
X Crimestoppers does not ask information givers to go to court;
X Calls to Crimestoppers do not appear on your bill;
X Crimestoppers is independent of the police.

Tollbar Island
Work to open the new bridges that form part of the new larger roundabout at Tollbar Island has been delayed due to the contractors finding some problems with the bridge supports. Repair and strengthening work is underway and GallifordTry advise that the bridges will open as soon as this new work is complete.
DVLA Tax Checker
Did you know that it is now easy to check whether a vehicle is fully taxed and has a valid MoT certificate ? The DVLA have recently added a new feature to their website which makes it very easy to check, so if you want to know about your own vehicle, or are suspicious about another vehicle you may see. Search for ‘DVLA Tax Check’ or go to www.vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk and enter the registration number and make to receive an immediate response. If a suspicious vehicle does not have valid tax or MoT then you can report it on the police non-emergency number 101.
