This is a watchword message from Gloucestershire Police. I thought it prudent you are aware this type of distraction scam is still doing the rounds. Please remain vigilant when you are packing/unpacking your shopping.
In the past week Cheltenham has suffered a number of distraction thefts in supermarket car parks. This is part of a recent spate that have occurred county wide
The ones in Cheltenham have occurred in Sainsbury’s Gallagher, M&S Kingsditch and Tesco Colletts Dr.
The MO is offenders will approach members of the public as they are unloading their shopping into their vehicles. They will then ask for directions to a location. Once they have distracted the Victim a second offender will steal items, in particular debit and cash cards.
Enjoy the sunshine, remain vigilant and stay safe.

The Lyonshall In Bloom team in conjunction with Lyonshall Nursery have worked hard again this year to enhance the village outlook. Thanks to Simon Thomas and his team for planting them up!

As you know The Parish Council has arranged remembrance for those soldiers from Lyonshall who lost their lives in WWI. The church bells will toll at 6.00pm on the anniversary of the day they died and toll for the age of each solider at time of their death.
Our first fallen hero is Captain John Coke McMurdo who died on 25th April 1915 aged 30.
Over the next few days until Monday, you can visit the church where you will find a tribute of memorial crosses in the Memorial Garden and a resume of his life and connection to Lyonshall and The Church on the table inside the South door. (From Lyonshall research)
For more details look under the Lyonshall commemorative project which can be found Parish History on this site.
Please take the time to listen for the bells and remember.
Now spring is here the grass really has started growing.
The mower will have its annual service Monday and the playground grass is quite long and ready for cutting.
We have a couple of helpers who have already offered to mow but we would really like to organise a group of volunteers to share the duties on a rota format.
Can you spare a few hours a month? Would you like to join the team?
Please contact Becky 01544 340747 or Kate 01544 340092.
