Latest Village News

‘Happy to Chat’ Bench
The brainchild of this scheme was a lady from Cardiff, after she saw an older man being ignored by passing joggers, teenagers with headphones and dog walkers. She thought there had to be an easy way that would let people know that you were open to having a chat. As news has spread it has seen these type of benches popping up all over the world using the same wording used on the first one.

Swanland’s ‘Happy To Chat Bench’ is on the middle of the 3 benches by the pond on Waters Edge. So if you see anyone sitting there on their own stop by and say “HELLO”

Crime Alerts
Several people in Swanland have received phone calls from a woman (with an accent) claiming to be from KCom (or in one case BT) indicating that there is a problem with your internet connection. These are scams so do not give any information and do not permit anyone remote access to your computer, laptop, phone etc.

There have also been reports that some people in drives or gardens in the early hours of the morning looking around, in windows etc. Be sure to keep doors, windows and vehicles locked, close/bolt gates etc and do not leave anything of value where it can easily be taken. If anyone has CCTV and sees anything suspicious, please report it to the police on 101 or using the on-line report form at www.humberside.police.uk/reporting-crime

Duck Food Signs
Two permanent signs have now been placed in the pond to highlight the importance of feeding the ducks with grain. Bread pollutes the pond water and is less healthy for ducks.

Healthier food (grain) is available from the Peppertree florist. The fish feed themselves.
