Hi The builder who’s doing some work for us reported a couple of guys who came into the back garden uninvited while he was working. This was on Wednesday. They said they were looking for scrap metal – which they might have been – but probably were looking for more, like the builder’s tools and I’d had several parcels left by the back gate that day which might have been easy pickings. I don’t suppose they’ll be back immediately but it’s easy to be complacent about security in such a nice place as Green Hammerton. The builder evidently had a bad feeling about them and locked everything up when he left If they are up to no good, they will have scouted the village and could return at a later date… So, may be wise to remind people not to leave parcels outside, sheds unlocked etc
