On Monday 18th of March a resident of the village found a stranger on her patio. The man was asked if there was any problem, replied in a well spoken voice and left. There was no vehicle to indicate, such as a delivery driver, as to why he should be at the property. The incident has been reported to the police and villagers are asked to be vigilant to any further sightings.
If you see a crime taking place or something suspicious please call 999 noting as much detail as possible including time, location, descriptions, direction of travel from the scene, make and model of any vehicles and if possible any registrations. For any non-emergency incidents or to pass any intelligence call 101 (call costs 15p for entire call) or you can email your local Police officer PC 2113 Pete Icke Peter.email@example.com
Are you interested in helping other people and if so come and find out more about the North Luffenham Good Neighbour Scheme this Friday 7th December at 7.30 pm in the den at The Fox. Following our AGM there will be light refreshments and a chance to talk over what is involved with the volunteers.
There are a variety of ways in which one can help and our volunteers find it rewarding and not particularly time consuming.
Performed by Oakham choral society; this is a modern work written in 2000 to mark the end of the war in Kosovo. It is a fitting end to this centenary year of the end of the Great War.
If you do not like choral works, this is a bit different. Some beautiful harmonies with exciting use of drums and brass instruments to paint a musical picture of the build up t o battle , the horrors of battle and its aftermath with a plea for peace.
It is worth a listen .
Tickets available from Walkers Bookshop ( Oakham ) or on the door on the night.
The event is aimed at community organisations, groups, charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises. The conference will help you continue to support people and places in Rutland, and to work in partnership to help to shape a resilient, well and prosperous Rutland.

As a valued member of the community I am writing to you to share details of our current recruitment campaign. I would like to take this opportunity to ask that you promote this within your communities and encourage those interested in a career with us to attend one of the seminars.
We are welcoming applicants aged 18-57 from all sections of the community; however we are particularly keen to hear from women and members of minority ethnic groups, so that the force reflects it communities in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
The recruitment seminars will be held across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland throughout May and into early June. Those attending will have the opportunity to find out first-hand what it is like to be a police officer and more about the recruitment process. They will have the opportunity to meet serving police officers, hear about their experiences, and find out about the rewarding and diverse career opportunities.
Full details of the recruitment campaign are on our website atwww.leics.polcie.ukI have taken the time to include details of the up and coming seminars for you to share within your communities:
Wigston Police Station, Bull Head Street, Wigston LE18 1WX
The concert originally for March 4th was cancelled because of the adverse weather. It has been rescheduled for Sunday 29th April. Tickets bought previously will be valid and can also be obtained on the night.
This year on 11th November 2018 it will be the centenary of the ending of the Great War after which the poppy became the symbol of Remembrance.
To mark this there are many schemes using poppies.
Here in the village , our Rector, Pippa would like a scheme for knitting/ crocheting poppies for a Cascade of flowers outside the church. This should be beautiful provided enough poppies are made! This project will be spearheaded by Fay Cummings and further details will follow after Easter.
In Oakham, it is hoped to replicate a version from the Tower of London with clay poppies at the castle.
I would like to set up an opportunity in the village for the clay poppy scheme ( open to men, women and older children ) and hope this would be one Saturday in June.
Apparently during a session of about 2 hours , it takes each person about 15 MINUTES to make a poppy. These will then be taken away for firing. All tuition is given. Artistic talent not needed.
Cost is zero although donations are welcome.
I need about 20 expressions of interest to set this up.
