Ryedale has one of the lowest crimes rates in the UK, however, the residents of Slingsby, Fryton and South Holme have decided to set up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme to help reduce the level of crime in the area even further.
This page contains the recent news updates from Slingsby’s Neighbourhood Watch and messages from North Yorkshire Police Community messaging service relating to potential or reported criminal activity that the police believe the community should be aware of.
Often there may be no news listed here which, of course, is a good thing, but other times there may be important information from the police. Please check back regularly for updates.
Tuesday 14th November at 7.15 pm in the Methodist Chapel Schoolroom. A meeting of Slingsby Ladies Group. The speaker will be Revd Max Moore, whose talk is entitled “My Life in Crime”
New members are always welcome. Anyone interested is welcome to come.
PCSO Andy Birkinshaw from the police Rural Taskforce will be at Slingsby Village Hall on Saturday 14th October 2017 between 10am and 2pm to dot peen mark any larger items such as saddles, garden tools, work tools, farm tools and cycles. This is a free service.
This is from the NYP website:-
“Dot peen marking involves using a tungsten carbide-tipped pin to indent an object with dots to create a visible, permanent unique number. The unique number will be entered onto the national Immobilise property register database, vastly increasing the chances that it will be reunited with its owner if it is lost or stolen.
“Dot peen machines can mark at a speed of two characters per second, to an accuracy of 0.006mm, and can be used on everything from steel and aluminium to plastic. It can therefore be used in farms, on garage and garden tools, power tools, computers and electrical devices, mobile phones and tablets, equestrian tack, golf clubs, musical instrument cases, cycles – and much more besides!”
