The Residents’ Association has received the following message from the Byfleet Neighbourhood Watch Group on Facebook.
Runnymede Neighbourhood Watch area have been experiencing the same burglary problems as we have had in Byfleet. This shows that this is not specifically a Byfleet problem and other areas are being also being targeted.
- Do be vigilant and report any suspicious activity.
- Don’t leave keys in internal door locks and ensure side gates are locked and secure, even if out for a short time, as some of these ‘between’ times are school-run times.
- The Row Town and Woodham areas do seem to be a particular favourite for the burglars at the moment.
Further details of individual cases are:
