Because of the current Government Covid19 advice our contractor has suspended maintenance work on the Cemetery for the time being. We will continue to be led by such advice and hope to resume maintenance in the near future. Regards Parish Clerk.
Durham Constabulary continues to deliver Neighbourhood Policing across all of our communities, but it is only right that we follow the guidance provided by Public Health in relation to public gatherings. Therefore, we have taken the decision to suspend PACT meetings.
This measure is purely to protect those that attend the meetings. We will still be working in your communities, responding to incidents and concerns. You will still see your local officers on your streets and if you want to raise issues with us you can still do so either in person or by contacting your local Neighbourhood Team by email Durham@durham.pnn.police.uk.
If you wish to report an incident you should telephone 101 or, in an emergency, 999.
Information from Durham County Council of the Corona Virus is available here.
Anyone can be a victim of scams. Scams affect the lives of millions of people across the UK and it is often the most vulnerable members of society who are targeted. People who are scammed often experience loneliness, shame and social isolation. The aim of Friends Against Scams is to inspire action, highlight the scale of the problem, change the perceptions of why people fall victim to scams and make scams a local, regional and national topic.
To find out how to protect yourself against scammers more details area available here. Friends Against Scams Poster PDF
