Attempted Theft from Vehicle in Bridgeway
A Bridgeway resident accidentally left her car unlocked last night. This morning, the contents of the glove compartment were strewn across the front seat.
Happily, nothing was taken, but villagers are warned to take extra care that their cars are locked when not in use. If you see anyone suspicious, try to get a description of them along with details of any vehicle they might be using. Call it through on 101 or, if a crime is happening at that time, dial 999.
Challenging Power – Destroying the Myth of the Mighty Leader and offering hope for the future
Speaker: Canon Phil Groves
Five sessions to be held in St Nicholas’ Church, Cuddington on Tuesday evenings starting on 7th March, 7.30 for 8pm
This Lent we will be examining events, such as terrorism, racism and migration; and politicians (such as Donald Trump and Rodrigo Duterte) who portray themselves as Mighty Leaders, in the context of Bible stories and characters.
We will consider why such leaders are dangerous and look at alternatives; and also at what creates peaceful communities, and how we can make a difference here and around the world.
