Community Meeting, Thursday 14th September, 7.30pm, Gorsley Village Hall

With the closure of the Gorsley Post Office and Shop, we are pursuing options as a community to consider how we can look to fill the void within the village. On 14th Sept we will be holding an open meeting to discuss and make plans – all welcome to come and get involved.

This is a Neighbourhood Watch Message

From Chrissie Parkes

There have been two telephone scams going around recently.

One claims to be from the inland revenue and that the victim owes tax. They threaten that the police are going to come round within the next hour if they do not pay. This is a scam, do not pay and put the phone down.

Another scam claims to be from a company checking the rateable value of properties because some properties have been wrongly over- valued. There is eventually a payment required of over £100.00 pounds. Again do not fall for this hang up. Please warn all members so as to avoid people becoming victims.

Please be aware and if you have any information about these incidents please call 101 or e-mail:- This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
