This is a message sent via Bedford Neighbourhood Watch. This information has been sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Lindsay Coates-Ledden (Police, Communications and Media Officer, Bedfordshire)

Bedfordshire Police is warning people to remain vigilant as colleagues from Hertfordshire Constabulary investigate reports of a scam to trick people out of vast sums of money and high-value jewellery.

Victims in North Hertfordshire have reportedly been approached by an offender claiming to be an illegal immigrant who has won the lottery.

The offender states that they are unable to claim the lottery win due to their immigration status and asks the victim to claim it on their behalf, in return for a cut of the prize money.

The offender then asks for a deposit from the victim, in the form of cash or high-value jewellery, to secure the deal.

Five reports have been received so far by Hertfordshire Constabulary with some victims losing up to £5,000.

Sergeant Ben Dimmock from Bedfordshire Police’s Crime Reduction team said: “Our colleagues at Hertfordshire Constabulary are currently investigating a number of incidents, and have told us they haven’t seen this method used before in the county.

“These reports are coming from just over the border, and we want to ensure our residents are aware of the scam. Hopefully by alerting people to this, we will be able to help prevent others falling prey to these callous fraudsters.

“Our colleagues in Hertfordshire are also investigating reports that the offender often has an accomplice who poses as a member of the public, keen to take up the offer. If you are approached in similar circumstances, please don’t hand over any cash or belongings and contact police straight away. I would also urge people to share this advice with neighbours, friends and relatives so we can spread the word as far as possible.”

If you have been approached in similar circumstances by anyone claiming they want to share a portion of their lottery winnings, please contact us on 101. Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111

Engineering Units Given the Green Light

Plans for another ‘i-brand’ initiative in Bedford have been approved by Bedford Borough Council’s planning committee.

The i-worx project received the green light recently from the committee to go ahead with its plans to deliver an Advanced Technology and Engineering Workshop Cluster offering twelve bespoke, modern engineering and work shop spaces on the Marston Vale Business Park site. The units will be ideal for new and expanding engineering businesses and perfectly located adjacent to the well-connected A421.

The i-Worx will join other successful Bedford Borough Council i-Brand serviced buildings including the ‘i-Lab’, ‘i-Kan’ and ‘i-Create’, which currently provide a business base and support for over 140 businesses.

The project is being developed following the Council’s successful bid to the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP) for £2.5 million of Local Growth Funding. Construction is due to start in the new year and it is planned that the new units will open their doors in the Summer of 2018.

Mayor Dave Hodgson said: “Our expanding portfolio of i-brand initiatives provide high quality business environments for a wide variety of business needs. These are exciting times for entrepreneurs looking for a base in Bedford Borough in which they can grow their innovative business ideas.”

Get Set, On Your Markers, Go!

Bedford’s Embankment is a popular running spot and it is set to get even better with the installation of permanent distance markers.

Running is free, you can do it anywhere, and it burns more calories than any other mainstream exercise. Regular running doesn’t just improve fitness levels but can also reduce risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke, as well as improving your mental health.

These 1km distance markers around the 2.8km route will enable people, whatever level they’re at, to set themselves challenges to stay motivated and track their progress.

Mayor Dave Hodgson said: “I am delighted that these new distance markers are now in place, first in Bedford Park and now on The Embankment. These are beautiful places to enjoy on a walk or a run. These markers will make it even easier for anyone to get involved, enjoy our park and riverside and improve their fitness.”

Farndale workshop and auditions

November 23, 2017, 7:30pm - November 30, 2017, 3:30pm

Auditions and workshops for Farndale Avenye’s Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s Production of Macbeth (A Comedy). Read through 23rd November at 7.30pm. Auditions on 30th November at 7.30pm Sharnbrook Mill Theatre, Mill Road, Sharnbrook, Beds, MK44 1NP. Show dates: 12th to 17th March 2018. The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society ladies mount yet another assault on the classics with a startlingly original production of Macbeth staged to get them to the Welwyn Garden City Finals. Under the carefully mascara'd eye of adjudicator George Peach, all events conspire hilariously against them. Parts for 3 men and 7 women. Ages vary but must be suitable for belonging to Townswomen’s Guild. Mrs Reece - chairman of the society Gwyneth - the pianist (think Les Dawson). George Peach - epicene sycophant Felicity - nervous young housewife Dawn- flighty older women Kate - tall and refined on crutches Plummer - ineffectual producer Thelma Minnie Henry
