Stepping Stones, Hemingford Grey – On Sunday 24th April, police received a report from an elderly resident that she had seen an intruder in her garden in the middle of the night the previous Thursday, and that her neighbour had had a similar experience the previous day. A PCSO visited and spoke to both residents, giving advice on security and explaining about the ‘Bobby Scheme’, the charity which gives support and advice to victims of burglary.
Information on the ‘Bobby Scheme’ is available of the Cambridgeshire Constabulary web-site here: https://www.cambs-police.co.uk/victims/bobby_scheme.asp or on their own web-site here: www.thebobbyscheme.org .
London Road, St Ives – On Sunday 24th April, police received a report from a resident who had found two unknown males in their late teens or early 20s, trespassing in a field where she kept her horses.

Tern Drive, St Ives – At 6:30 pm on Monday 2nd May, police received a report of a large yellow/brown dog found loose on the road here, maybe injured because it appeared to have blood on its fur. The out-of-hours dog warden was contacted who took the animal to Wood Green Rescue Centre. Later in the evening, police received another call, from residents in London Road, reporting a lost dog of a similar description. Hopefully these two calls both related to the same animal and it has now been reunited with its owners.
