Plans are going ahead nicely for a celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday in Boxted, to be held on Saturday 11 June at Boxted St Peter’s school. There will be street party atmosphere with tea and cake, music from Boxted Methodist silver band, a licensed bar, bouncy castles and games. The aim is very much to bring the community together to commemorate this special occasion, with any proceeds being split between Breast Cancer Awareness and Boxted British Legion. We are looking for a face painter and someone who can model balloons. We are also looking for donations of cakes for the refreshment stall and red, white or blue cupcakes to create a special centrepiece. Anyone available to offer any of these things should contact me, Jill, on 272537 or email jill@gratts.co.uk

Neighbourhood Watch

Theft in Dedham Road, Boxted. Suspects unidentified have attended address in grey citroen C3 index BD62EVX and removed items from the front garden.

Doorstep/Rouge traders are operating in your area trying to obtain work related to block paved driveways, garden work or tree cutting, roofing or any other household repair or maintenance.

Never agree to have work carried out by traders who knock on your door offering these services and always thoroughly check out leaflets as addresses provided can be false with telephone numbers that stop working if you have a problem with the work. You can also be provided with guarantees that are worthless.

We would always advise residents to consider using one of our Buy With Confidence businesses who have been audited and approved by Trading Standards. The nearest three to your postcode can be found by calling the national consumer helpline on 03454 040506 or http://www.buywithconfidence.gov.uk

We would ask all residents to look out for household repair and maintenance activity at the homes of elderly neighbours, friends or family members.

Residents who do get caught out by doorstep/rogue traders are often too embarrassed to
report it. If you are concerned call the helpline with the information.
