Roadside scam

The following is a local policing update for the Acle neighbourhood


Weekly crime summary 30th January to 6th Febraury 2015

Police are urging motorists to be aware of a roadside scam involving men claiming to have broken down.

The warning follows a number of incidents in Norfolk and Suffolk this week whereby drivers have been flagged down by men from a supposedly broken down car.

Motorists are either asked for cash so they can purchase fuel, or offered jewellery in exchange for cash. The jewellery often appears to be low value – either cheap gold or polished metal – and not worth what they are asked to pay.

Officers are urging motorists to be vigilant and to report any similar incidents to police – using the 101 number for suspicious activity or 999 if you believe a crime is in progress.

Parish Council Elections

Parish Council elections take place on Thursday, 7th May. All the current parish councillors cease to be councillors on Monday, 11th May.  Some of the current councillors may decide to put themselves forward again for election. Some may not.

Would you like to stand for election? Are you  interested in parish matters and would you like to find out more? Would you like to be part of the decision making body for areas of Beighton and Moulton St Mary, commenting on local planning applications, deciding on grants for local groups, helping with community projects and generally making the villages an even better place to live, work and visit?  The Parish Council is currently working on designing new village signs for each village.

There are 7 spaces on the Parish Council. If 7 or fewer people put themselves forward then everyone will automatically be “elected” on to the Council, without an election. If more than 7 people stand for election, then there will be a vote on 7th May.

Parish councillors are unpaid volunteers.  Training is available. Parish Council meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month,  so you would need to be able to attend most of these evening meetings.

You need to be 18 or over and live or work in Beighton or Moulton St Mary to be a councillor, and you must be a British subject or an eligible Commonwealth citizen or a citizen of any other member state of the European Union.

Nomination forms will be available shortly and need to be delivered to Broadland District Council by 4pm on Thursday, 9th April.  If you are interested in finding out more, speak to one of the current parish councillors, or the clerk on 01493 751070 or email :
