Beware! Bad people are around the villages.

More and more reports are coming in of thieves trying to, and sometimes succeeding, in stealing goods, vehicles and even dogs in our area.

Challock, Molash, Chilham and Wye seem to be suffering a crime-wave but without any bad people being apprehended yet.

If you see anything suspicious then please report it to Police on 101 or 999 immediately. They are there to support us. If you can manage to capture the registration number of a vehicle or photograph it then even better. Descriptions of the bad people very useful. Of course, do not put yourself in any danger when doing this.

More reports are added to Facebook, Challock Chatter as they occur.

Safeguard your property and belongings and be watchful for others.
