Dog Fouling – Please Pick Up!


Please Keep Horley Poo Free!

This is a reminder to all dog owners to ‘Pick Up the Poo’ after your pet. Whether you own a dog or not, dog poo affects everyone.

There seems to be more instances of dog fouling recently in the footpaths and lanes around Horley and there is no excuse given the number poo bins provided as well as the availability of poo bags from outside 10 Lane Close.

It’s simple to remember: just bag it and bin it! It’s against the law to not clear up after your dog, and you could face a fine of up to £1,000.

Keep Safe From Coronavirus Scams

Oxfordshire Residents have been warned to be on their guard against criminals and scammers exploiting the coronavirus situation. Action Fraud has recently reported that coronavirus-related fraud reports have increased by 400% in March. Example of such are seen below.

The majority of reports are related to online shopping scams where people have ordered protective face masks, hand sanitiser, and other products, which have never arrived and coronavirus-themed phishing emails. These attempt to trick people into opening malicious attachments which could lead to fraudsters stealing people’s personal information, email logins and passwords, and banking details.

Protect yourself

1) Watch out for scam messages
Don’t click on the links or attachments in suspicious emails, and never respond to unsolicited messages and calls that ask for your personal or financial details.

2) Shopping online:
If you’re making a purchase from a company or person you don’t know and trust, carry out some research first, and ask a friend or family member for advice before completing the purchase. If you decide to go ahead with the purchase, use a credit card if you have one, as most major credit card providers insure online purchases.

3) Protect your devices from the latest threats:
Always install the latest software and app updates to protect your devices from the latest threats.

Horley’s Dame Picks Her Favourite Desert Island Discs

Horley’s very special Dame, Glenys Kyle, (of Rowarth House opposite the church), appeared on Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs on Sunday, choosing 8 of her favourite discs and 1 luxury item with which she would chose to be cast away.

It is an illuminating programme, where Glenys (who is publicly known as Dame Glenys Stacey) talks about various experiences of her life from childhood through 40 years of public service, where her last post was as her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Probation.

To listen to Dame Glenys’ castaway interview on BBC Catch up and hear about the work which earned her a damehood (as well as her thwarted dalliance with T Rex!), click here.
