Last week 3 men called at a house in Russett Close in King's Lynn, they claimed that they had to dig a drainage ditch in the garden. When the occupier objected they told her to go and put the kettle on, as they would be coming into the house for some tea.
A neighbour at this juncture on overhearing what was being said, told the householder to contact the Police. The 3 men drove off.
The description of the men and vehicle is as follows:
The vehicle is a dirty red 'P'-reg Ford Transit, the rest of the number plates were obscured with mud, and there were a lot of ladders on the roof.
One of the men was quite old and looked like Charles Bronson the other 2 men appeared to be about 30ish, and one of them looked as though he could have been the son

Inside this issue:

1st Northwold Brownies
We would like to say a very big 'Thank You' to all parents and friends who very kindly donated a large amount of toiletries which enabled us to fill 20 shoeboxes for the homeless. Brown Owl (Jane Hassey) and her husband, Terry, took the boxes to Bishopbridge House, a new hostel for the homeless run by the St Martin's Housing Trust, in Norwich before Christmas. We have already received a letter  from them thanking the Brownies for their gifts.
Before the end of last term, the Brownies and their families very much enjoyed our annual Christmas outing to the Pantomime, Dick Whittington, at Hunstanton. This year we were very fortunate to be sitting in the front two rows, so we really felt as if we were taking part! One of the Brownies, Rachael Booty, was chosen to go up onto the stage during the second half. Some of the Brownies were also delighted to see Maizy Stutchbury, along with two of her sisters, in the chorus/dancers.
We have now started our Spring Term. We are very keen to welcome any girls aged between 7 and 10 years who wish to join us on Mondays, during term-time, at the Sports and Social Club, Hovells Lane, Northwold from 6pm until 7.30pm. For further details, please contact Jane Hassey (xxxxxx) or Bridget Chilvers (xxxxxx).

If you have seen a vehicle matching the description of the one above or of the men involved please contact the police immediately.
Please warn your members about the dangers of dealing with unknown callers at the door or in the garden. This householder was fortunate that her neighbour was vigilant on her behalf, (next time the potential victim might not be so lucky).
