Flood Warning – Still In Effect

North Bank Road alongside the River Nene, east of Peterborough and west of Dog-in-a-Doublet Sluice

Flooding is expected – immediate action required

Levels in the River Nene remains high following rainfall last week. During periods of high tide the river will be unable to discharge into the sea, resulting in tide lock conditions. This is likely to lead to localised flooding at North Bank Road. It is expected that this Flood Warning will remain in force for at least the next 48 hours and this message will be updated by Thursday 14th of November. Whilst the Flood Warning is in force, the Local Authority will close North Bank Road. Diversionary routes will be put in place and further updates will be available through local media.

RIP Vi Ellington

Being a ‘Coates’ boy – I had the priveldge to have lived opposite Vi from 1953 to 1962, she was a ‘lovely lady’. As a ‘very’ young boy she looked after me when my mother had to be elsewhere. Some 66 years later we would often ‘bump’ into one another in Whittlesey, and she always greeted me and everyone with a warm smile and asked how you were.
Violet Ellington you will be sadly missed by many – RIP

Peterborough Parish Conference

Today Myself and Cllr Eamonn Dorling attended The Peterborough Parish Conference, hosted by Peterborough City Council for the 40 Parishes around Peterborough and we were invited to join in.
The theme was ‘Planning for the Future’
I arrived nice and early, despite taking me 10 minutes to get out of Ramsey Road/Church Street – I managed to meet Leader of PCC Cllr John Hodich who let me ‘bend his ear’ on the state we are living with on the A605 at present and of course The Kings Dyke Crossing, although very sympathetic – Peterborough has enough of it’s own issues & problems….

Fantastic venue at The Future Business Centre – |London Road | Posh Ground |

Be Aware More & More Scams

I have just been made aware of the following telephone call that was received by a Cambridgeshire resident only minutes ago. Although this type of call is nothing new, it is clearly continuing to impact on our local communities.
‘My wife just had a scam phone call on our landline stating that there was a warrant out for her arrest. This upset her considerably. She was advised to press 1 to speak to an officer or 2 to learn about the file. She did neither and hung up. The number given by 1471 was 07377289633
I have tried to call the mobile number but the line disconnects. Just to confirm, do not push the button on the keypad and hang up just like the person did above. Neither the police or any law enforcement would contact people in such a way and I trust you will all know that, but there will be people out there that you can help warn so please pass on and help prevent fraud.

Any questions or concerns please let me know.

Conned…Out of Life Savings

Please read the following BBC© news article, makes for sad reading but let us alert others through our works so they do not fall victim.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-your-money-50249529

“I felt devastated, absolutely devastated and so guilty. My life collapsed really”.
Cynthia Tuck remembers the moment she realised she had been conned out of her life savings, and those of her late husband, George.

She’d become one of dozens of victims of a sophisticated, organised scam offering hugely over-valued coloured diamonds as “investments”.

But realising she’d been conned wasn’t the end of Cynthia’s misery. A three-year fight for justice – involving five different police forces and multiple investigations – would ultimately lead nowhere.Cynthia and her family have been feeling nothing but anger, resentment and frustration towards the justice system because the people who were involved in the scam got off scot-free.

No charges. No trial. No justice.

Many thanks
