FIRST: ANOTHER SEXTORTION CASE:
A young man was on an online chat site called ‘Hangout’. After a while, the conversation became intimate and she asked him to carry out an ‘intimate act and video it for her – which he did.
Immediately he received a demand for £1,500, or she would share the video with all his personal contacts !
The young man is totally embarrassed and is desperate his parents and family do not find out.
Our Digital Investigation and Intelligence Team will help / assistance to advice the aggrieved young man how to clear his computer.
ONCE AGAIN – PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW – NOT TO VIDEO, DO, SAY, TEXT OR WRITE, ANYTHING ONLINE THAT YOU WOULD NOT WANT YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS, RELATIVES, NEIGHBOURS, WORK COLLEAGUES – AND YOUR EMPLOYER - THAT INCLUDES EVERYONE IN YOUR CONTACT LIST – TO SEE !!!
NEXT: A HIGH COURT SCAM:
A resident received a phone call, supposedly from High Court demanding money. The caller said they are coming with a locksmith as a warrant had been issued under a warrant for £480. They said knew where the resident lived and would be there in 20 minutes, if she did not pay that amount over the phone.
The caller said there was an outstanding judgment from ‘Yell.Com’ and the money was owed from 2013. The resident has received no letters, no emails and no communication regarding the charge.
If you get a call like this:
STOP – THINK – BREATHE – PAUSE – AND PUT THE PHONE DOWN.

NEXT: SOME FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES;
Places Called Home
This new National Lottery Community Fund will give grants of £1,000 to £5,000 to help improve community spaces and deliver sustainable activities for communities across the UK.
Projects must meet at least two of the following criteria:
Build on the relationships created during the Covid-19 pandemic to increase community activity and the number of people taking part
Encourage people to work together, creating opportunities for communities to live in a sustainable and healthy way
Raise awareness amongst the public of the importance of connected households, neighbourhoods and resilient communities
Develop a new idea, activity or way to come together that has emerged in response to the pandemic
Revive or redesign community and common spaces to encourage shared community activities
The scheme will close when it has received 1,500 applications or on 6 July 2021, whichever comes first. Read more here
Clubs in Crisis Fund:
Does your club or community group work to get children and young people involved in sporting activities?
If so, we could have the right funding opportunity for you. We have just opened a new round of applications for Made By Sport's #ClubsInCrisis fund, which is aimed at giving grassroots sport a much-needed lifeline.
Grants of £2,021 will be considered for organisations or clubs who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, who need help to save, resume or adapt their activities.
The criteria has been slightly changed: the club or project within your organisation should primarily support young people aged 5-25, but this does not need to apply to your whole organisation.
Deadline for applications is 10am on Wednesday 7th July 2021
Warburtons Community Grant Scheme
Grants of up to £400 are now available to support charitable organisations towards broader activities which improve health, place or skills for families in their community.
Deadline for applications is 9 August 2021

Sport England Return to Play
This scheme gives grants up to £10,000 to help sports groups re-start, and will remain open until the end of 2021.
Their highest priority will now be projects located in areas of high deprivation as these areas have been particularly badly hit by the pandemic.
They particularly encourage applications from organisations working with communities who’ve suffered worse health outcomes and the most significantly reduced activity levels as a result of the pandemic. Their insight currently shows this to be girls and women, young people aged 16-24 and older people aged 70+.
They will now consider new or expanded projects that will safely deliver activities allowing people to become active – addressing challenges their audiences faced during lockdown.

NEWS UPDATE FROM NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
Hi, I am Valerie Pike, Chair of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association. The Association was formed in September 2019 and our objective was simply to help residents. In setting up the Association, we asked
How can each of us
· help to make our community safer?
· improve its spirit and neighbourliness?
· help the Police to reduce local crime?
· make our own home security better?
Starting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your street is easy, and it’s free. Police statistics show that a Neighbourhood Watch scheme significantly reduces the probability of your house being burgled.
Neighbourhood Watch is about neighbourliness and making our communities and homes safer. It’s about being friendly and caring, and watching out for the elderly and vulnerable too.
Members of Neighbourhood Watch are assisted in a number of ways, including having free home security surveys conducted by a local PCSO, to identify any areas in which security can be improved, and to advise on optimum ways to safeguard against crime and improve personal and household security
But most of all Neighbourhood Watch is about helping the Police to keep us safe. They need the support of people who care. If that’s you - join us now!
Please contact us on email@example.com and we will be delighted to assist.
