Very sadly a lady recently died in Rutland in a house fire. Unfortunately the property concerned did not have any working smoke alarms fitted.
The Leicestershire Fire & Rescue service offer a free service to any resident who does not have a working smoke alarm installed, and is not able to fit one themselves.
 If any resident needs assistance with either checking existing smoke alarms or installing new ones, they can contact either of the County Councillors for Ketton, Diana or Gary (email and telephone numbers below) and they can arrange for a member of the Leicestershire Fire & Rescue service to visit.

Temporary Gate Closures - Ketton Old Quarry - from Mon 19 Dec 2016

Jenny Harris (Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust), has sent this notification regarding some temporary gate closures in Ketton Old Quarry which will affect walkers there.
 

'From Monday 19th December, the sheep in Ketton Old Quarry will be in the Dell to give them fresh grazing, so the gates, from the track and from the sports complex into the paddock, will be locked closed for a period of time. This will affect walkers' routes through the nature reserve, but without the sheep eating down the vegetation we won't be able to enjoy the orchids and other wild flowers and all the wonderful butterflies in spring and summer. '


 

  

 


 

 


  

The nights are getting longer and darker earlier so 
 
Protect your home and belongings from burglars 

Keep doors and windows locked at all times - even if you pop outside to the garden or go upstairs

  • Always lock doors behind you and remove the key from the lock

  • Keep valuables, bags, cash and keys out of sight and keep them in a safe place
  • Don’t leave the packaging from expensive items outside your house - take it to be recycled or put them in the bin
  • Install a visible alarm system and security lighting to act as a deterrent
  • Prevent easy access to the back and sides of your home with locked gates or fencing
  • Make sure your home looks occupied by using automatic timer switches to turn on a light when it goes dark, even if you are just out for a couple of hours
  • If you’re going away, don’t advertise it on social media
  • Ask a neighbour or relative if they could collect post and open and close curtains while you are away
  • Register your belongings with immobilise.com
