Neighbourhood watch


Karen Kebby runs the neighbourhood watch for Tollard Royal – WE HAVE TO TAKE ACTION AS A SMALL VILLAGE OR OUR CRIMES GO UNREPORTED AND NEVER SOLVED.

Our village gardener Lee foiled an attempted burglary at the garage at Vine Cottage on 11th May at 10:30am.

The vehicle was a white ford van, registration number LG53 OXL, 3 men (2 x white and 1 black). The vehicle left the property down the hill onto the B3081


However on checking these plates are false  and out of date


Anyone with any information at all regarding this vehicle should contact the Police.

If you hear an alarm going off please don’t ignore it, go and investigate – you never know you might just stop someone the heart ache of being burgled.

Dorset Police Rural Crime Team would like you to be aware of these suspicious vehicles. Please look out for these vehicles this weekend and they are:

A White Ford Transit Van 58 Plate **58KUJ
A 53 Plate white Ford KA Van – **53OXL
A W Plate silver Honda HRV – W**PDP
These vehicle has been seen in suspicious circumstances near Farms, homes and business across the county during the last few days.

If these vehicles or other vehicles are seen acting suspiciously please gather as much information as possible such as the registration number and descriptions of the driver and any passengers and contact Dorset Police immediately.



Hare coursing is still occurring in our area. This is not only illegal but can cause a lot of damage to farmer’s crops, please call in any incidents on 101.

There have been many reports throughout the whole county regarding cold callers. These are usually teams of people who target a particular area and call on all houses before moving onto another town. The most recent gangs have been people claiming to be deaf and trying to sell artwork door to door. Items are usually of a poor quality and the sellers rarely have a pedlar’s certificate or licence, which is a legal requirement for selling door to door. Please do not buy from these people and look out for your neighbours who may be vulnerable; again, please call the police on 101 if you have any concerns.

You inform your local neighbours of your holiday dates, which lights you are leaving on, who is key holder in case of emergency and your contact details if you wish to be contacted.
