Just had an email from Simon, keep your eyes peeled for this one boaters.
Hi there, my bike was stolen last night from near Bridge 185 between Beckford Road and Bathampton
it’s a ‘whyte’ ‘kings cross’ bike and was stolen between 8.10pm and 10.14pm on 22nd May 2013
it’s been reported to the police (for what it’s worth) but i wondered if you could post this on your forum? Simon 077300 38801
And we don’t know whether Simon’s bike was locked or not but it’s a reminder that any bike that isn’t locked will go missing (as well as a fair few that are)
There was a boat fire in Sulhamstead on Friday night (17th May). The police believe it was arson. If you saw anything suspicious, you can contact the police on 101.
The RBOA rep for the eastern K&A, Jane Pollard, has had discussions with PC Teresa Herbert of Wiltshire Police. Jane says “PC Herbert is very keen to establish an efficient means of communication along her patch of the canal – mainly Bedwyn to Devizes – but there is an officer coordinating all issues along the length of the canal too. She suggested possible local meetings and realises that there is not sufficient policing of the canal. She wants to improve this.”
