This is a Country Watch message that we send out out on an occassional basis that I hope you may find interesting.
However please don,t feel you have to forward it on as it’s just to give those of you who are not Country Watch members a feel for some of the rural issues we are dealing with. For more information regarding Countey Watch please read our link:-
Rural Round Up.
We urge people living, working and playing in Surrey’s villages and countryside to be extra vigilant, to keep an eye out for any suspicious activity and report it as soon as possible.’ Suspicious activity’ includes everything from strangers seemingly ‘scoping’ an area, to individuals asking specific questions about, or even photographing, a facility or farm’s processes, to unauthorised attempts to purchase fertilisers, diesel, herbicides or pesticides.
