Consumers urged to be aware of fake texts offering Covid19 vaccine

Trading Standards is warning the public to be on their guard following reports that fraudsters are sending out fake texts offering a Covid-19 vaccine in an attempt to steal bank details.

The text offers a link to what police call an “extremely convincing” fake NHS website.

Once on the website people are asked to input their bank details to register for a vaccine.

The scam message reads ‘we have identified that you are eligible to apply for your vaccine’ and then prompts you to click on a link for further information or to ‘apply’ for the vaccine.

If you receive a text or email that asks you to click on a link or for you to provide information, such as your name, credit card or bank details, delete it immediately.

Remember, the NHS will never ask for your payment details.

Further details can be obtained from the website.

Countryside walking – Good Practices

With the warm weather encouraging people to walk within the Parish, offering real relief from the current lockdown restrictions, the Parish Council would ask that all walkers are aware of their surroundings and give specific consideration to the possibility of livestock being in the vicinity but out of sight. 

Of particular importance is the proper closing of gates please, highlighted recently by cattle being loose due to an unfastened gate which could have had serious consequencies. 

Thank you in anticipation and we hope that all walkers will continue to enjoy our beautiful village with due consideration to all other users..
