Improvements to St Peter & St Paul's Churchyard

Fri, 21 Sep 2018 16:10 by Ursula Southan

In 2015 Syston Town Council became legally responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of the closed churchyard at St Peter & St Paul's Church - the building and grounds remain in the ownership of the Diocese and the Parochial Church Council. Council funds are put aside to ensure the grounds are maintained.

However, there are some improvements such as developing a wild flower area and improving lighting to the path and floodlighting of the tower which requires extra funding. More »

The Town Council in conjunction with the PCC are therefore looking to gain the support of sponsors for some of this work as well as looking into obtaining grants.

Both organisations would be very pleased to hear from anyone who might be interested in assisting with this project in any way. Maybe a local garden nursery might like to offer advice on the best type of flowers and shrubs and maybe donate some samples; or a local lighting company may wish to assist with the lighting project.

If you or anyone might like to become involved, please contact the Council on 0116 2607150 or email: mailbox@systontc.org.uk,

Royal Mail have raised awareness of Scam Mail in our local community. Royal Mail never knowingly delivers scam mail.
Typically scam mail involves fraudsters sending convincing letters that are designed to trick people out of money or other valuables. Scam mail can include bogus competitions and fake prize draws.

Who receives scam mail? It can be anyone. You, a relative or a friend could receive this type of mail. Even the most alert people can be taken in by these criminals. More »

Royal Mail are combating scam mail- Royal Mail is doing all they can to protect their customers from scam mail. In 2016 Royal Mail introduced a series of additional measures to reduce the impact on customers. This included the introduction of a new industry-wide code of practice for dealing with scam mail as well as a new clause in Royal Mail bulk mail contracts. They are working with other operators in the UK and around the world to share intelligence and take steps to prevent it entering the UK.

To date Royal Mail have stopped over four million suspected pieces of scam mail at their distribution centres around the UK before they could be posted through letterboxes of their customers.
