Swanland Crime
There have numerous break ins within Swanland during this year with cars being stolen. Humberside Police have issued a general warning regarding increased crime (break-ins and car thefts) in West Hull Villages. Police advice is never to leave car keys downstairs/near front doors, in sight of windows etc when you go to bed as it is a very easy way to steal cars without causing any damage to the car or its value.

Information can be passed to the police by dialling 101 or on-line for reporting crimes https://www.reportingcrime.uk/HPrisk/

or brough@humberside.pnn.police.uk (for reporting suspicious vehicles, people seen behaving suspiciously etc.)

Latest Reported Scam
Telephone caller purports to be from Telephone Preference Service . The line is that the person joined TPS some time ago and they want to upgrade them so that they will never get cold calls again.
They then ask to check address and that the person pays their telephone bill by direct debit and go on to ask the person to confirm their credit card expires in 2018. NEVER respond to calls asking for Financial Details

Traffic on the A164
A new roundabout is set to be built on one of the region's busiest roads. The £4.2m scheme will see an improved junction lay-out on the A164 between Kirk Ella and Swanland - see South Hunsley Ward Councillors page for more details.

Swanland Village Signs Project
In 2009 the SVA started erecting village signs depicting a Swan on a blue background in an oval gold frame. They measure approximately one metre across with the village name in green and gold underneath and cost over £2000 each.

The Parish Council have agreed to fund the final & 7th sign for Woodgates Lane.

Please do not pollute the Pond
Please do not throw ANYTHING into the village pond - as well as litter, traffic cones and the usual debris this includes unwanted water plants and fish. The pond group should be consulted about any form of wild life or plants being introduced. If you want to feed the ducks Please use grain. Proper duck food is available from the Peppertree florist.
