CCSG Supporting Chorleywood - One Year On

It’s a year since our CRA colleague Vanessa set up the Chorleywood Corona Support Group, mobilising a fantastic team of volunteers to support Chorleywood as we, and the whole country, faced the harsh reality of the Covid pandemic.  

My goodness, the scale of the CCSG team’s work over the last 12 months is truly breath-taking. Here’s a photo summary of their achievements, as a celebration of the wonderful dedication and support they have provided in these very difficult times ... CCSG in a year (pdf download).  
 
Our heartfelt thanks go to all the CCSG team for all they’ve done, and continue to do, for those in need in our village.  

Jane Tozer, Chairman and all of the CRA Executive team



Chorleywood Library - Volunteer Rota Manager Needed

Chorleywood Library Volunteers are planning to reopen in the near future. They are looking for a key volunteer with good computer skills to manage the Library's on-line rota. This can be done from wherever on your own device.  The Library's current lovely rota manager is relocating away from Chorleywood in May/June. We are looking for someone to succeed her. Without the key skills involved we can't function.

Might this suit you?  

If you would like to discuss or need any further information, please send an email to: cwlvolunteers@gmail.com or call Ruth Peploe on 01923 283165

Staying Safe

Remember that a bank will NEVER contact you to ask you to move money to another account. 
 
Remember the NHS will NEVER ask for Payment - all vaccines are FREE ; or ask for your Bank details ;  or arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine ;  and will not ask you to prove your identity by sending copies of personal documents.  See COVID vaccine scam guidelines (PDF 647 KB) for more guidance.

One of the best ways of staying informed is by signing up for the excellent OWL emails from Herts Police.  Sign up directly at OWL.

Recent alerts include
  • Catalytic converter theft is part of a national crimewave that is sweeping the country. The actual theft can take as little as two minutes to execute, quite often involving someone with a hydraulic trolley jack and cutting through the exhaust with an angle grinder or electric saw which can cause a loud noise.  Anyone seen jacking up a car up in the street like this should be reported to the police straight away.  

  • Money mule scammers using fake job adverts.  Fraudsters recruit innocent people to transfer stolen money overseas using the victim’s bank account. This money has often been obtained illegally and the ‘mule’ is asked to receive the stolen money into their account and told to send the money overseas using a wire transfer service, keeping some for themselves.


Reporting Potholes and other Faults

Residents should report any highway fault including potholes, flooding and damage to grass verges through the Hertfordshire County Council website - Highways Fault Reporting
