“Even I speak up, nothing will be done about it anyway”
 
 
Ever thought that when you’ve realised you have information about a crime in your area?
 
 
What if we told you that last year, just one anonymous call to our charity led to shutting down an illegal cannabis farm growing over £4 million worth of drugs and discovering the organised crime group behind it?
 
 
Your call matters. It can make the difference in keeping your community safe from crime.
Our charity is here to help you speak up to help stop crime.
 
 
We’re here 24/7, 365 days a year, we never judge how you know about a crime, and we guarantee to keep you 100% anonymous – not even we will ever know who you are, so no-one else will either.
 
 
Call 0800 555 111 or click to find out how you can speak up through our simple online form. bit.ly/OneCallCan

Faster than fairies, faster than witches,
Bridges and houses, hedges and ditches;
Later today, that most famous of trains,
The Flying Scotsman is passing through Staines.
Down the mainline, out into Surrey,
Through Chertsey, then Woking, then Guildford it hurries,
And "oh what a sight" for those who will glance it,
But stay off the rails - don't be tempted to chance it.
To Shalford, then Chilworth, then Dorking Deepdene,
Large crowds will gather as it's letting off steam.
To Betchworth, then Reigate, then Redhill then home...
With a hefty big fine if you're flying a drone.
Back to Victoria, then same again later:
It's a wonderful sight, but "be careful" spectator!
(with apologies to Robert Louis Stevenson)
 
 
The Flying Scotsman passing through the Surrey Hills later today will be an amazing sight, but please be safe if you're going to watch it - many of the prime locations could be busy, and the rules about trespassing on the railway, not flying a drone within 50m of the railway and not obstructing signalling equipment still apply despite it being a steam train!

Around half the people who die at the coast slip, trip or fall into the water. They never intend to get wet.
 
 
Take a minute: The initial shock of being in cold water can cause you to gasp and panic. Effects of cold water shock pass in less than a minute so don’t try to swim straight away.


 
Relax and float: Float on your back while you catch your breath. Try to get hold of something that will help you float.


 
Keep calm: Once you're calm, call for help. Swim for safety if you are able.

Leaving your dog alone outside a shop is another easy opportunity for a thief, even if you are only away for a minute. https://www.ourwatch.org.uk/protectyourpooch...

Tools are often recovered by the police but frustratingly unable to trace the owner. Security marking your tools using forensic asset marking or etching kit is another highly effective, visible deterrent to thieves & an established method of reducing theft
