17 January 2018Warning about a new scam
From Ivan Ould, County Councillor for the Market Bosworth Division
Police are warning the public to be alert to a recent scam where people are approached by fake police officers and encouraged to take part in an undercover operation
Since November last year, Leicestershire Police has received eight reports of a scam of this nature and are warning the public to prevent further people falling victim to this crime.
The circumstances are that criminals are contacting members of the public, mainly by phone, claiming to be from the police or their bank's fraud team. The criminal goes on to claim they are investigating a fraud at a local bank where bank staff are involved with issuing fake bank notes and asks the victim for their help.
As part of the ongoing police investigation, the victim is asked to visit the same branch and withdraw a large amount of money from their own account, usually thousands of pounds, and hand this over to the police to be tested.
The victim is assured that they will have the money returned to their bank account however this never happens and the criminal gets away with the cash. The victim is told not to tell the bank the reasons around withdrawing the large sum if questioned, suspecting the cashier is only asking as they are in on the scam.
Paul Wenlock, from the Force's economic crime unit, said: "This is a scam which seems to be increasing, not just in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland but elsewhere across the country.
"The victim may feel that they are doing a public service by helping the police and for some it may seem exciting to part of an undercover operation, but this is not the case and it's simply a thief's way of enticing a victim so they can steal their money.
"It's important that those who are elderly or vulnerable who often fall prey to such type of scams are aware so we would encourage the public to share this message and help us prevent further victims of this crime.
Paul Wenlock added: "Police or banks will never ask anyone to take part in a fraud operation or withdraw or transfer money. Please be wary of any contact made from someone claiming to be from the police asking you to transfer money. If you are suspicious or concerned, please hang up the phone and contact either police, Action Fraud or your local bank."
Anyone who has been contacted in similar circumstances or has any information about the offences is asked to contact 101.

02 January 2018Cadeby Parish Council Meeting
The next Parish Council Meeting will be held on Thursday 18th January 2018 at 7pm in the Church hall.
All welcome. Agenda now available.
Agenda will be published on the village and parish council websites when available and will include discussion on the following Budget Proposals from Leicestershire County Council
Budget proposals – have your say
We’re urging parish councils to have their say on the council’s latest budget proposals - and would be grateful if you could circulate this to your councillors.
You can find out more about the four-year plan and give feedback until 21 January.
The proposals include:
• Savings of £54m, including:
o Recruiting more in-house foster carers
o Refocusing ‘early help’ and prevention services
o A new approach to road maintenance
o Reducing support services further, including HR, ICT and finance
o Reducing adult social care costs
• Investment of £40m, mainly in children’s and adult social care due to rising demand
• Council Tax rises of 3.99 per cent, including two per cent for adult social care - and then by 1.99 per cent in 2020/21 and 2021/22. Each one per cent raises £2.6m
• Generating £3.5m by selling services to other organisations and investing in property – this income reduces the impact of reduced national funding
• Spending £290m on roads, schools, broadband and more, supporting new homes and boosting the local economy
The consultation runs until 21 January – click here to send us your views

13 December 2017Wreath making workshop
A Christmas wreath-making workshop was held in Cadeby Church Hall at the beginning of December.
More than 15 villagers attended the session which was led by Cadeby resident Karen Brankin and each went away with a fabulous festive door wreath made on the night.
The event was the first to be hosted by Cadeby Community Development Trust which now manages the hall and any bookings for its hire.
