NHW URGENT NOTICE
From a Blean resident:
Yesterday 2 men drove onto my parking area in a white van with “Survey” written on it.
One of the men got out and informed me that they would be working on repairing Blean Road and they had some spare road materials that they could use to resurface my parking area.
I assured him I was not interested especially when he started to mention £4500.00 plus for this work. I said the only thing I would be interested in would be 2 tons of road plannings if they had them.
A figure of £250.00 was agreed for the materials and they drove off.
Ten minutes later the second man returned alone saying that his mate had made a mistake and the price would be £500.00. I said in that case I was not interested in having them deliver any materials.
Later in the afternoon I discovered that the conservatory door lock was damaged and I now believe this to be an attempted distraction burglary by the first male.
Both men were aged late 20s white with Irish accents about 5.9″ tall heavy build. The second male had open sore patches on his face from some type of infection.
Please make other householders aware of this incident.
There is to be a one day hearing on 12th March.
We will keep you informed as soon as there is any other news.
Garden waste collections will shortly be resuming after the service was suspended over the winter.
Green bins will be emptied on the scheduled recycling day in either week commencing 25 February or 4 March, and then on the usual fortnightly basis after that.
Collections were suspended as part of a series of changes to the Serco contract designed to improve resilience across the service as a whole. Figures show the amount of garden waste collected drops off considerably during January and February.
The winter suspension will come into force again in December this year.
