I have had a site meeting today with the BT Open Reach Area manager regarding the enormous amount of problems we have all had with our village phone lines over the past 3 weeks. Renewal work of the Cabinet and underground cables at the top of OAK road is nearly finished. TELNT are the contractors doing this work on behalf of BT Open Reach. TELNT will be signing off the job in the next few days.
It is very important that you report any faults that you may have right away to BT before the contractors sign off the job so all village phone lines are in good working order before they sign off the job.
If you do not report a fault they will not know that it is there.
Please be on the look out….Daytime break in at Oak Road…see Police report below……..kindly sent in by Paula Hele, Neighbourhood Watch Co ordinator .
A house in Oak Road was broken into yesterday, Sunday 14th October between 11.30am and 3.30pm.

If you have any information about this incident please call the Neighbourhood Policing Team on 07855 781 608. If there is no reply pleae leave your name and number for someone to contact you back within 24 hours.
Urgent information may be given to Braintree Police Station on 01376 551 312 .
Please be on the look out for thieves after roof lead. I believe that thieves attempted to steal lead off the Church Roof last week and caused some damage in the process. Not sure what they got away with. Please be extra vigilant.
