Creating safer, stronger and active communities



The recent terrorist attrocities in Manchester and London highlight the value of taking personal responsibility for the community in which we live. Community responsibility includes cooperation, respect and participation. The concept goes beyond thinking and acting as individuals to sharing and protecting common beliefs about interests and life.  We all have more in common than we think, whatever our individual beliefs and cultures may be.

The police and the security and intelligence agencies depend on information from you. Be our eyes and ears and help keep yourself, your family and your local community safe by looking out for suspicious activity and reporting it to the police, in confidence.

You may see or hear something that could be that vital piece of information needed to stop a terrorist attack.

The best advice is that if you are offered an exceptional deal on interest rates above what you would normally expect then the old saying " if it looks too good to be true then it probably is"  is likely to be true. Advice on how to avoid pension scams can be found online at the Pensionwise government site.
