having knowingly drunk too much alcohol. If you know of someone
who does this and you have not yet told us please consider the following:

COLD CALLERS - WE NEED TO KNOW.
There are still groups of people travelling around
this area trying to con people. Bogus callers have struck recently
near our area so lets be ready for them if they meander onto our
patch. These people will call at your house and either distract
you whilst their mate nips through your back door or will try and
get in themselves. They will say they are from the gas board, water
board, electricity board, need a pee, have lost their dog, need
to use your phone, want to cut your hedge, need directions, anything
that may give them an opportunity to get into your house to steal
your belongings. Genuine callers have proper identification.
DO NOT LET ANYONE INTO YOUR HOUSE
UNLESS YOU KNOW WHO THEY ARE.
IF YOU ARE IN ANY DOUBT RING '999' IMMEDIATELY.
