Dallington Parish Assembly 2019

The Dallington Parish Assembly was held on 16.04.19, it wasn’t particularly well attended, but we had a very pleasant evening – wonderful food and lots of wine.

John Barnes (County and District Councillor) and Eleanor Kirby-Green (District Councillor) were there and we were able to thank them for their support on so many issues.

Sergeant David Sands (Dave) came along and responded to the many questions asked.

Peter Miles from the Messenger Group was there, and it is becoming evident that The Messenger and the Dallington website together are becoming the “Parish Pump” for information and communication.  Everyone agreed that the new format of The Messenger is excellent.

All the reports from County (ESCC), District (RDC) and the organisations in the Parish will be available on the Dallington website – DPC Meetings 2019-20 page – as soon as my new printer arrives, and I can scan them!

We are look forward to next year’s Parish Assembly and will put a lot of thought into better advertising.

Dallington Parish Assembly 2019

The Dallington Parish Assembly 2019 will be held on 16th April 2019 at 7.00pm in the Village Hall.
Your County, District and Parish Councillors will be there, with Sussex Police and the clubs, societies and organisations in the Parish.
It is a very pleasant and informal evening – not a council meeting – a chance to mix and mingle, ask questions and generally get to know one another better.
We do hope you can attend, enjoy the evening and have a glass of wine with us.

Scam Warning! – Fake TV Licensing Emails

An ongoing TV Licensing phishing campaign, first identified by the National Fraud Intelligence Unit (NFIB) in September 2018, continues to be reported to Action Fraud in high numbers.  Fraudsters are sending the public fake TV Licensing emails that are designed to steal their personal and financial information.  Since April 2018, Action Fraud has received over 900 crime reports with victim losses totalling more than £830,000.

How you can protect yourself
1. Don’t click on the links or attachments in suspicious emails and never respond to messages that ask for your personal or financial details.
2. Don’t assume a phone call or email is authentic, even if someone knows your basic details (such as your name and address).  Remember, criminals can spoof phone numbers and emails addresses to appear as companies you know and trust, such as TV Licensing.
3. Your bank will never call and ask you for your PIN, full banking password, or ask you to transfer money out of your account.

What to do if you’ve fallen victim
1. Let your bank know as soon as possible and monitor your bank statements regularly for any unusual activity.
2. If you suspect your identity may have been stolen you can check your credit file quickly and easily on-line.  Use a reputable service provider and follow up on any unexpected or suspicious results.
3. If you have been a victim of fraud or cyber crime – report it to Action Fraud at actionfraud.police.uk or by calling 0300 123 2040.
