A Hambledon resident has contacted the village web site to alert villagers to thefts after a break-in at his property.
Alfie Hammond, who owns Hammond’s Yard on the Cricket Green, had a large and valuable quantity of copper stolen. He estimates that it amounted to about 200 cwt (approximately 10,000 kilos) with a value of about £4.50 a kilo.
The theft occurred earlier this week. Alf is neighbourhood watch coordinator for the Cricket Green and urged people to be on the look-out for suspicious activity.
Police have also issued warnings that thieves do not respect lockdown restrictions and remain active, with garden sheds and outhouses particularly at risk.
Contact details for neighbourhood watch coordinators can be found on the Home menu under Essential Information on this website and in the monthly parish magazine.
