Housing survey for Cookhill
You will probably have been delivered a housing needs survey recently.
The survey has come from the Warwickshire Rural Community Council (WRCC) and has not been instigated by Cookhill Parish Council. WRCC are a rural community charity based in Warwickshire. They say;
We aim to ensure Warwickshire rural communities are thriving, vibrant and sustainable places where people want to live and work.
Your contribution is voluntary and you only need complete the parts of the survey that you feel happy with.
If you have any queries regarding the survey please don’t hesitate to contact the Parish Council on 07584 687 283.
There has been an increase in the number of scam callers in the area over the last few months.
One of the scam calls doing the rounds requests access to your computer remotely, claiming that BT will shut down your connection if you do not do this. Another reports that your internet connection will be terminated if you do not click through to another department.
Please remember that if a caller asks to access your computer remotely, or asks for personal information and bank details, you should end the call immediately and use another method to verify the request.
For more information on how to stay safe online, and to report fraud and cyber crime, please visit the Action Fraud website.
