April 2016 - Parish Meeting and Oil
Parish Meeting
The main Parish Meeting will take place in the George and Dragon at 8.00 pm on Monday 9th May 2016. All villagers are invited to hear a report on the parish's finances, and to raise and discuss any issues which they may have affecting life in the village. The meeting is a very relaxed and informal affair, so please do come along if there's anything you'd like to raise.
Oil thefts

We've been told of at least one recent theft of heating oil in the village in recent months. Whilst the incidence of oil thefts is linked to the price of heating oil, and the recent low prices appear to have meant, it remains a perennial problem in rural areas, particularly for those whose tanks are situated in easy-to-reach locations, as the cost of moving a tank to a safer location can be considerable.

If you / someone you know in the village has been the victim of an oil theft, could you please let either Glen or Giles know - we can't do much about it, but it helps us to keep track of the number of times this happens.

One useful device that can be used to deter theft is the OilPal (www.oilpal.com). It's a step on from the normal Watchman monitor, so it sits on top of your tank and monitors the oil level. This is sent, via a broadband connection, to a central app, so you can see on your phone or computer your current oil level, predicted days' supply at current usage, and get alerted when oil levels fall below a specified level. More importantly, if it detects a sudden drop in the level of oil in the tank, then it will alert you immediately via text message - better than finding out a month later that you've been hit. If interested, get in touch with Giles as he can provide more details and may be able to secure a discount code for you from the manufacturers if enough people display an interest.
