Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police
Our first new electric car has been stolen from Maidenhead - see below ! The thieves obviously stole it to order and knew how to open and start it as well as how to de-activate the computer tracker system !
NEXT: I circulated a request on Friday from Danielle Lane from Abri, re two projects she is running – One was a jobshop evening each Wednesday at the Pump Room, in Sawyers Close, Windsor.
The other was for Webinars to start your own business. The webinars take place on TEAMS, which is a similar App to Zoom. I was concerned that many of you not already working for an organisation, will ever have heard of TEAMS, let alone have downloaded the App. I asked what anyone interested should do.
She has responded:
Thank you, Jeff
Teams is accessible through a web link if you have a link to a meeting and we have instructions from all devices that we can provide.
Hope this helps, happy to take lots of queries too 😊
So, if you are interested and make contact with Danielle, she will send you the LINK. The contact details were on the posters I attached to Friday’s message – but here they are again:
Jeff If you are considering getting one – there are many on the market and the choice may be confusing – so our Volunteer Video Doorbell volunteers have produced a website with the most frequently asked questions:
Valerie Pike – the Chair of the Windsor & Ascot NHW Association - will be very happy to assist further and refer you to a Guru, once you have visited the site:
NEXT: We have received a report about someone perhaps holding themselves out – or purporting to be a solicitor and accepting legal work.
Before consulting a ‘solicitor’ you do not know, you can check their bona fides by making contact with the SRA – The Solicitors Regulation Authority
They have issued this Guidance:
Before engaging the services of any solicitor, I would encourage you to verify their credentials first. You can do so via the SRA Solicitors Register, which can be found here: https://www.sra.org.uk/consumers/register/, or The Law Society ‘Find a Solicitor’ service, here: https://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/.
They also publish to a Scam alert section, which can be found here: https://www.sra.org.uk/consumers/scam-alerts/2021/jul/pottsco/
I have attached reference numbers to each crime report. If you live in the vicinity of any of the crimes mentioned and have CCTV or a video doorbell, can you please check the footage.
