Tidiness of Holt village / Dog Fouling Problems Print
Thursday, 23 June 2016 08:18

The Holt Community Council do not at the present time, employ anyone to keep the Village tidy and so they are asking if residents would help by weeding along their boundary hedges or walls, where they meet the pavement. We are also asking that litter is put into bins, especially on the Cross where take away meals and snacks are eaten.

The other major concern is the long standing problem with ‘Dog Fouling’ and once again ask owners to clear up after their pets and not let dogs out on their own for exercise.

The following scams have been received at this office. Please be vigilant.

Letter – Inheritance Letter – ‘Person Sharing your family name’

We have been made aware that a resident has received a letter from a person claiming to be an ‘Associate Finance Officer’ in China stating a person, with the same family name, has passed away leaving a large amount of money. The letter requests that the recipient keep the matter as confidential and goes on to state that the large amount of funds are ‘on hold’. The letter requests that the recipient e mails the sender to ‘share the details’ of the plan. We would like to remind residents that this is a scam

Child Sexual Exploitation awareness video Print
Friday, 10 June 2016 08:05

Drama students at two local schools have starred in a short film which raises awareness of Child Sexual Exploitation.  Pupils from Ysgol Emrys Ap Iwan in Abergele and Ysgol Glan Clwyd in St Asaph have worked with North Wales Police in producing the short film which was launched (Friday, June 3) at the Urdd Eisteddfod in Flint.

Kevin Jones who is Head of Drama at Ysgol Emrys Ap Iwan explained that the Year 11 and 12 pupils were studying for their GCSE and A levels at the time of filming and took a few hours after their school day to take part.  I hope the film will have a positive impact and raise awareness of what CSE is, particularly to children and young people across North Wales who may be being exploited and who may not have realised it until now.
