To all Landowners and Farmers

Thanks to the Angling Trust and The Bobby Van Trust the Rural Crime Team have secured funding for drone signage. If you think you would benefit from these please email me with your name, address and contact number on:- emily.thomas@wiltshire.pnn.police.uk I will post out the signs and there will be an indemnity form included with a PPE. Once received Police will then be able to proactively fly on your land, covering wide areas and hopefully giving a visible presence deterring and detecting crime. It also gives the trained pilots different terrains on which to practice!

The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust has received a timely donation of £2,000 from The Royal Warrant Holders Association Charity Fund thanks to the support of Philip Coward at The Hillbrush Company. The Trust is still out in the community securing the homes of the elderly and victims of domestic abuse, as well as giving much needed online safety advice during these difficult times.

Jennie Shaw, Director of the Trust, said “We are deeply grateful to Mr Coward, Chairman of the Hillbrush Company,  for considering The Wiltshire Bobby Van Trust at this particularity difficult time. All fundraising events have been cancelled until August, this will have a serious impact on  this vital charity which has been working in the community throughout lockdown. It’s more important than ever that the older and vulnerable people within our community are able to feel safe at home.”
