THEFT FROM & DAMAGE TO CARS

Theft in Shiplake has been unusual in recent years but we are not immune to crime. Recent incidents  invoving nails purposely placed to damage tyres in the Shiplake Cross and Binfield Heath area are one aspect of this.  Thefts accompanied by serious damage to the cars have now been reported on the lane leading upto the church and College grounds nearer the river. In the past there have also been thefts from cars parked on Mill Lane on the approach to the locks.

The parish council is discussing with the school and will liaise with the  community policing  team to determine what preventative measures might be taken, not least possible lighting on the lane. 

IMPORTANTLY: AS ALWAYS DO NOT LEAVE ARTICLES OF VALUE ON CAR SEATS OR ELSEWHERE WHERE THEY ARE VISIBLE TO THIEVES!

Baskerville Lane Street Party

“There are so many new people in Baskerville Lane, let’s have a street party to get to know them.” So Clare McCarthy and her helpers, Angela Jones, Susan Walker, Jennie Rechner, Viv Mitchell  and Helen Woods-Ballard got organising and on 15th September her suggestion was put into practice.

The party was hosted at Little Timbers, and Pimms and hot dogs were provided, as well as cakes and sandwiches brought by those attending. Representatives for almost all the households in Baskerville Lane attended, including our oldest and much-loved resident Bill Wyatt.
