Hoton Parish Council News - March 2018

Defibrillator for Hoton
The defibrillator for Hoton has now been purchased and will be installed very soon. Thank you to everyone who has been involved and donated funds to enable this to happen.

Attempted theft of red telephone kiosks
Woodhouse Parish Council have circulated the following warning regarding the attempted theft of red telephone kiosks in our area:

Thieves looking very official are touring this area trying to steal red telephone kiosks. If you have one, please try to monitor it and get close neighbours involved. They should call police 999 if anyone is 'working' on it. More »

The vans that have been seen in this vicinity are white and the two numbers seen so far are:

PK60 FVL on a small VW van with rear opaque windows – no tax or MOT - seen parked up.

PK60 YVN on a Ford transit – no MOT but taxed – seen with men at work.

The transit wearing are in high-vis and the rear is painted with red and white stripes, like Highway maintenance vehicles. This morning, they were working with a pneumatic drill and were trying excavate it from its surroundings. They asked the passer by 'if there were any more red phone boxes in the area' so are clearly bold and ambitious. Fortunately, the passer-by told a neighbour who is former parish councillor and knew that our box is Grade II Listed and can't be removed legitimately. It is on a C class road that is a through road to the M1 and pretty busy. But only the passer-by thought it might not be legit. The police have been informed.

Please keep your eyes open and report any suspicious behaviour to the police.

Horse Droppings

There have been concerns expressed about horse droppings on pavements in Hoton, we would like to remind people of their responsibilities with regards to animal droppings, please be courteous to other users of the pavement.
