Our current Neighbourhood Priorities’ are:

2 – Targeting hare coursing  along the A47 corridor from Uppingham to Tixover & parts of the north beat area from Langham towards the A1. Last month, members of the public reported to police numerous reports of hare coursing. As a result several people and vehicles have been identified as taking part in this illegal activity.

I would encourage you all to be vigilant and report any persons you suspect as acting suspicious. Take note of any vehicle and registration number they are in and ring the police on 101.

By all means, let me know and your Neighbourhood coordinators, but ring 101 in the first instance, so the information can be reported and acted upon straightaway.

Toxocara Canis

Perhaps better known as dog roundworm the embryonated eggs of which can be ingested by humans causing disease called toxocariasis. Young children are particularly at risk as it is picked up by ingestion of eggs from infected dog faeces. It is fortunately rare but rare things do happen. Dog mess is not only unpleasant but a potential source of an unpleasant infection.

This item is being reposted as another incident of dog fouling on The Oval and also on a street in the village was reported to the Parish Council. In the incident on The Oval the owner of the dog was challenged but refused to clean up. The vast majority of dog owners conscientiously clean up after their dogs and please continue to be vigilant when walking your dog. If users of The Oval see an infringement please continue to challenge and point out that there are bins provided.

South Luffenham Ghost Story

NEW PERSPECTIVES THEATRE – OH WHISTLE AND I’LL COME TO YOU (based on the classic ghost story by M. R. James)

Tickets are now available for the New Perspectives Theatre Company’s showing of Oh Whistle and I’ll Come to You which will be in South Luffenham Village Hall at 7.30pm on Tuesday 6th December. 

The tickets cost £10 each and can be purchased from Malcolm, phone 720687 or Noel, phone 720112.

Suitable for audience age 14+years.  Running time: 90 mins + interval

 A prying hand brings forth from centuries of sleep… a mysterious thing… it seems a whistle… and on it engraved… these ominous words… WHO’S THAT COMING

Professor Parkins takes a room at The Globe.

Away from Cambridge, a peaceful coastal retreat with minimal interruption from the inn’s young valet should be perfect for writing. But on taking a walk to explore the area, Parkins finds an ancient whistle with a soul-stirring inscription. Choosing to ignore its warning, the professor is soon to discover he is not alone…

Widely regarded as the father of the modern ghost story, M. R. James’ eerie tale is re-imagined by David Rudkin, described by the Observer as ‘Britain’s greatest living dramatic poet’ into this new Christmas chiller. This production marks David Rudkin’s 80th year and the 80th anniversary of the death of M.R. James.

These events are sponsored by Centre Stage which subsidise the cost and make live theatre affordable for local communities.
