Distraction Burglary

Benefield Road Oundle.

Male 1 goes to front door and starts talking to elderly resident saying that he is lost and looking for a friend who lives local. He asks her to point out the direction he should be going in so they walk to the front gate leaving the front door open. During this time two other men have entered the property witnessed by the elderly male living at the address, and gone through the cupboards in the bedroom before breaking the back door to exit.

Streetlamps

Please report any faulty street lamps to lightsout@woodfordpc.co.uk. Woodford Parish Council owns all of the lamps in the village and repairs can only take place if we know about the fault and authorise the repair. Once the Parish Clerk is aware of the fault the contractor will normally repair the lamp in about a week. All you need to report is the lamp number (if known), or the location/address. Please don't assume someone else has reported the fault. We'd rather have two reports than none.

Woodford Past

The Northampton Mercury reported that on the Saturday before Christmas 1891, “Miss Plevins of Woodford House invited all the members of the Church Sunday School, about 230 in number, to see a Christmas tree, held in the Infant School. Each Child received a present, also oranges and sweets. Crackers were distributed afterwards.”

And similarly in 1914 during the First World War, “On Saturday Afternoon a tea and Christmas tree was arranged by members of the St John Ambulance in the Temperance Hall for the children whose father's are serving their king and country and the children of widows of the village. The tree which looked very handsome was lent by Mrs Plevins of Woodford House and the decorations for the tree by Mr Charlton. Afterwards, tea, games etc., were enjoyed by the children and later in the evening Mr Cartledge, dressed as Father Christmas handed the presents from the tree to the ladies who gave them to the children…..Proceedings closed with the singing of the National Anthem”
