Phone Scam Warning from DDC

Posted by Webmaster on December 11, 2015 at 12:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Council renews warning over phone scam in Daventry District


Residents in Daventry District are urged to be on their guard from a Council Tax rebate phone fraud.

Fraudsters have been phoning victims telling them that they have been placed in the wrong council tax bracket for a number of years and are entitled to a rebate.


They normally say that this rebate should be worth about £7,000. Once the victim is convinced, the fraudster tells them that in order to receive the rebate they will need to pay an administration fee in advance.


The payment they ask for varies between £60–£350. The victim provides the details and makes the payment, but then is no longer able to make contact with the person they spoke to on the phone.


When they phone their council about the rebate and the fact that they are in the wrong tax bracket, the council will confirm that they know nothing about it and that they have been contacted by fraudsters.


The fraudsters have mainly been targeting both male and female victims who are aged 60 and over.


Protect Yourself:

 *Never respond to unsolicited phone calls.

 * Your local council won’t ever phone out-of-the-blue to discuss a council tax rebate. If you receive a call of this nature, put the phone down straight away.

 * No legitimate organisation will ask you to pay an advanced fee in order to receive money, so never give them your card details.

 * If you think you have been a victim of fraud, hang up the phone and wait five minutes to clear the line as fraudsters sometimes keep the line open. Then call your bank or card issuer to report the fraud. Where it is possible use a different phone line to make the phone call.

 *If you believe that you have been a victim of fraud you can report it online http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud or by telephone 0300 123 2040.


Phone calls from Daventry District Council will be displayed as 01327 871100.


If you are unsure about a caller claiming to be from DDC, please contact the Council to verify the identity of a Council Official by phoning the main number on 01327 871100.

Please keep a look out when you are out and about, if you see any suspicious activity around our Churches. Recent lead and copper thefts from our lovely old village churches are a concern. Call the police as soon as it is safe for you to do so, if you feel something is out of place, it really does not matter if it turns out to be innocent we would rather check concerns out.

Theft from motor vehicles

We have suffered a number of thefts from working vans, tools etc being taken. Please if you have alarms fitted do set them even if you are only leaving your vehicle for the shortest of periods.

Consider storing your expensive tools in a safer environment where possible.

Also Issues of concern…


Just reported from Warwickshire area, a horse not far from our border was found with a plait in its mane. Advice as always is to remove this marking asap, let your local officer know as this helps officers to be aware as to potential threat to horse thefts.


Attempt theft of a horse although South of Daventry, the horse was not harmed, at the time of this incident I attempted to visit as many stables as possible and many residents with horses kindly offered to spread this awareness to other horse owners.


Horse tack theft is once again a concern, recent theft of such items on our area. (if you would like any security advice and or your Horse tack marking please let me know and I will make enquiries).


Theft of trailers, again if you have a trailer please keep it as secure as possible. (Any security advice please get in touch)


Yesterday a resident in Crick spoke to me letting me know that she was out walking with her dogs she felt that two males , unknown to her, were taking a little too much interest in her dogs. Advice to anyone please if you feel that you have seen someone acting in a suspicious manner, get yourself to a safe place and call the police as soon as possible. If you have serious concerns call 999.

My name is Tracy Turner and I am the Promotional Events Coordinator for Daventry District Timebank, which is situated at New Street Day Centre, next to Tesco’s in Daventry.

Daventry District Timebank was launched in May of 2012, thanks to the funding from Daventry District Housing.


It is one of the Volunteer Centre’s projects based in Daventry but covering the Daventry District.


There are now over 200 members, most of whom are actively helping others or receiving help themselves.


Timebank is a way for people to share their skills with others in the community and be rewarded for it – in time. For every hour of help they give, providing a service for another member, they will receive one time credit. They can spend their time credits getting help for themselves from other Timebank members.


Some of the skills of the people who have already joined Timebank included the following:-


Shopping, Ironing, Dog Walking, House Sitting, Gardening, Being shown how to use a computer, knitting for someone, Teaching English to members, Teaching a member how to read. In fact there are too many to list.


We are looking to take on new members from the age of 18 & 30, and by sending you this email I hope that I can come in and chat to your younger clientele.


I would very much appreciate if you could e-mail me on [email protected] so that I can arrange an appointment.


I look forward to hearing from you soon.


Kind Regards

Long Buckby Guides - Volunteers Needed

Posted by Webmaster on October 5, 2015 at 12:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Long Buckby Guides

Opportunity for Fun & Volunteering

Long Buckby Guides (10-15yrs) are an active unit within our village and are part of the leading charity for girls and women in the UK. The current leader has been fantastic but has made the hard decision to leave at October half term. To allow the unit to continue we are looking for a team of adults who can commit to attending meetings, organising fun and challenging activities for the Guides. To help this team we are also looking for a range of people from those who could spare a few hours each term (prepare activities, accounts, manage waiting list) to those who could help at one meeting a month.

The Guide meetings are currently weekly but this is entirely flexible depending on the availability of the leaders that come forward. For instance many units now meet on a monthly basis for one day at a weekend.

Do something amazing – help us to give girls in the village more opportunities for fun, friendship, challenge and adventure.

Want more information on this rewarding and fun role?
