Suspicious Vehicles Again! (Posted 24/02/2018)

Man with a
          Scam image

Over this past week, we have had several incidents where suspect vehicles have been seen in the area and the occupants acting suspiciously. In one case, one of three occupants in a white van seen in Mill Lane called at two houses. In one incident the caller virtually demanded to clean the driveway, using the fact that he had done the next door neighbour's driveway to gain authenticity. Another white van(ex British Gas vehicle) was picked up by residents in The limes with the occupants acting suspiciously. As in the other incidents, the callers got short shrift. However, in another incident in London Road involving the same vehicle, there were only young people in the house at the time the call was made, and the caller banged on the door and windows in an intimidating manner. Thankfully the young people did not open the door. If you are intending to leave your young folk in the house whilst popping out, please instil in them the need to be vigilant when anybody approaches the property. The key message is ,"Don't answer the door!". In each case, the index numbers were passed to police for Intelligence purposes.

If your alarm is not set up correctly and keeps going off intermittently or stays on longer than the legal time span, it will become a nuisance to neighbours. More importantly, the alarm loses its value, in that people simply wont respond if it goes off....Please check and get it adjusted if necessary.
All alarm holders are invited to give Tandridge Council their key holder contact details on the following Audible Intruder Alarm - key-holder record form....(Click here) and select the 'Burglar alarms' tab.

Filter arrow - The Star Traffic Lights (Posted 11/01/2018)

Puzzled traffic light

Complaints have been received that the filter arrow for vehicles turning right from the A22 towards the A264 isn't working correctly. It should operate when there are three or more vehicles waiting to turn right. Any less than that and it wont operate. The authorities assume that vehicles wanting to turn right will do so immediately the way is clear, irrespective of whether the filter arrow is showing. Our Parish Clerk has alerted Surrey Highways because we want it working correctly before we get the deluge of vehicles that will be directed from the M23 through that junction in the coming weeks.
