We know Calderdale is teeming with excellent charities, community groups, and volunteers, and we want them to be recognised and celebrated for the great work they do. So, if your charitable organisation is doing something great nominate your organisation, if you have been supported by a local charitable group nominate them, or if you have a volunteer you just couldn’t live without let us know.

Anti-burglary Campaign this Summer

It’s often easy on the lazy summer days to forget that burglars take advantage of people leaving windows and doors open to get that gentle, cool breeze.

However, there are some simple steps that everyone can take to improve their home security : –

  • Always lock your doors and windows even when you’re at home
  • Always take the key out of the lock and keep it in a safe place – do not leave keys in reach of the letterbox, a cat flap, or on view through a window.
  • Make sure items such as car keys, laptops, tablets, phones and cash cannot be seen through a window.
  • Do not leave power cables or charger units for laptops and tablets plugged in and on show.
  • If you are out, try to make your home look occupied by using a timer switch to control lights.
  • Make sure Euro cylinder locks have achieved – TS 007 (3 star rating) or Sold Secure Diamond Standard for lock cylinders (SS312).
  • If you have a burglar alarm always remember to switch it on when you leave the house or when you go to bed.
  • Why not start a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme in your area?

For more advice please contact your local Crime Prevention Officer by email or call 101.

If you are deaf or speech impaired use Text Phone 07786 200 200 or Type Talk 18001 101 and if a crime is in progress or there is a danger to life, call 999.

Important Information about the 2017 Electoral Registration Household Canvass

In the next few days all households will receive a Household Enquiry Form (HEF) addressed to “the occupier” listing the details of who we think is living at the property.  All households are required by law to respond and tell us if the information on the form is correct or of any changes. Once you have your letter, it is quick and easy to respond on line and you can also register any additions or changes of address.  If you don’t respond you will receive a reminder followed by a personal visit. Please pass this message to your friends and family.
