This is a message sent via The Neighbourhood & Home Watch Network (England & Wales). This information has been sent on behalf of Action Fraud (National Fraud Intelligence Bureau)

Fraudsters are targeting people to list items on their behalf on popular online auction sites. The scam involves a job offer to sell desirable items at below market value and receive money from any potential buyers. The ‘work from home’ job will usually require retaining 10% of the money received as a “salary” and fraudsters will ask that the remaining funds are sent to them via bank transfer or money transfer.

We will be holding another event about our planning application next Wednesday 14th January at 8pm in the Wilderness Cafe. We will give a short presentation and then there will be a chance for questions and suggestions. We held a similar meeting on November 24th, but many people could not make the time so we are running another session to give people the chance to hear our plans and respond. If you are interested but cannot make that date, please do have a look at the drawings which are up in the cafe (open Fridays to Sundays during January and then back to Wednesdays to Sundays from February onwards) and feel free to contact us by e-mail emilyanddan@wildernesswood.org or by telephone 01825 830509. Other dates for your diary: Stewardship Saturdays on this Saturday 10th January, February 7th and March 7th. Meet at the cafe at 10am. All ages welcome. We work on stewarding and improving the woodland and its buildings and have lunch together. Sunday March 15th, we will host a short chamber music concert in the house at Wilderness Wood. Come for tea in the cafe at 4pm and then music in the house from 5pm-6pm May 3rd - we are going to invite you to a party to celebrate our first year in the wilderness and the bluebells. More details to follow. Help needed: We are looking for some fresh ideas for Easter activities in the wood. The Easter Bunny hunt has been very popular for years, but it would be great to have a new take on it. Would anyone in the village like to take the lead on this?

Why so shy!
Editors Notes By Eddie on Feb 20 2015
I'm becoming permanently bemused as to why our village clubs, groups, societies etc. are so reluctant to tell people about their activities, their plans for future events and details of invitations to join them !!
