After three incidents of theft from the oil tank of the church's neighbour, St Bartholomew's oil tank has now been targeted. Thieves broke open the padlock and cover and have stolen approximately 200 litres of heating oil.

More security lights and cameras have now been added, but this theft has once more, followed an oil delivery in the village.

Somebody is watching and knows when to strike, so please be vigilant.
