St Nicholas Church Wins Lancashire Best Kept Village

St Nicholas Church Wrea Green won the 2017 Lancashire Best Kept Village Awards - Place of Worship & Grounds. Stanley and Revd. Wes collected the cup at a ceremony held at The Villa this afternoon.

Monday 23rd October.

Lancashire Best Kept Village Awards

Ribby Hall Footpath Cleared

The footpath which begins from Ribby Road where the old egg packing station used to be and runs to both Fox Lane Ends in one direction and to Ribby Hall Corner in another is again open.  150 yard section on the leg to Ribby Corner was blocked but LCC have now cleared this.  Whilst recent rain has made it muddy this is an alternative path which avoids using the narrow Ribby Road pavement.

Have You Lost a Gold Ring?

A gold ring was found in The Brooklands and handed in to Kirkham Police station on 17th July.   If you think this may be yours please contact Kirkham Police

Twinning Thanks the Cake Bakers

Dear Twinning Friends,

 

I'd like to say thank you to everyone who donated cakes to the tea tent on Field Day.  The tables were groaning under the load and I was sure we would be unable to sell them all, but they all went!  We had a very successful day and although I won't know the exact outcome until Christine gets back from holiday, I'm assured that we made over £800.  This will be used to help entertain the visitors from St Bris le Vineux in Burgundy, when they visit Wrea Green in the spring of 2018.

 

It's really encouraging to see the way the village pulls together for Field Day.  Thank you again.

 

Regards,

 

Mike Parker

Chairman,

Wrea Green Twinning Group

Car Club Formed

"A group of enthusiasts are forming a club for anyone with a classic or sports car in Wrea Green. We'll organise trips which combine great drives with interesting places to visit. This will probably include some evening, day or weekend tours if there is demand. We want the club to be available to as many people as possible and our objective is socialising informally and having a good time with people sharing a love of cars. The definition of 'classic and sports car' is very broad to encourage participation and you certainly don't need an expensive or rare vehicle to join in. Our first event is scheduled for the 30th September with a day trip to the Lakes or Yorkshire being planned. If you are interested please contact steve.smurthwaite@hotmail.com or 07380293077."

Thursday 20 July 6 to 8pm Christ Church Garstang Road, Wesham.

Cyber Protection

Following the ransomware cyber attack on Friday 12 May which affected the NHS and is believed to have affected other organisations globally, the City of London Police’s National Fraud Intelligence Bureau has issued an alert urging both individuals and businesses to follow protection advice immediately and in the coming days.   Ransomware is a form of malicious software (Malware) that enables cyber criminals to remotely lock down files on your computer or mobile device. Criminals will use ransomware to extort money from you (a ransom), before they restore access to your files. There are many ways that ransomware can infect your device, whether it be a link to a malicious website in an unsolicited email, or through a security vulnerability in a piece of software you use.   Key Protect messages for businesses to protect themselves from ransomware:

  • Install system and application updates on all devices as soon as they become available.
  • Install anti-virus software on all devices and keep it updated.
  • Create regular backups of your important files to a device that isn’t left connected to your network as any malware infection could spread to that too.

The National Cyber Security Centre’s technical guidance includes specific software patches to use that will prevent uninfected computers on your network from becoming infected with the “WannaCry” Ransomware: https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/guidance/ransomware-latest-ncsc-guidance   For additional in-depth technical guidance on how to protect your organisation from ransomware, details can be found here: https://www.ncsc.gov.uk/guidance/protecting-your-organisation-ransomware   Key Protect advice for individuals:

  • Install system and application updates on all devices as soon as they become available.
  • Install anti-virus software on all devices and keep it updated.
  • Create regular backups of your important files to a device (such as an external hard drive or memory stick) that isn’t left connected to your computer as any malware infection could spread to that too.
  • Only install apps from official app stores, such as Google’s Play Store, or Apple’s App Store as they offer better levels of protection than some 3rd party  stores. Jailbreaking, rooting, or disabling any of the default security features of your device will make it more susceptible to malware infections.

Phishing/smishing Fraudsters may exploit this high profile incident and use it as part of phishing/smishing campaigns. We urge people to be cautious if they receive any unsolicited communications from the NHS. The protect advice for that is the following:

  • An email address can be spoofed. Don’t open attachments or click on the links within any unsolicited emails you receive, and never respond to emails that ask for your personal or financial details.
  • The sender’s name and number in a text message can be spoofed, so even if the message appears to be from an organisation you know of, you should still exercise caution, particularly if the texts are asking you to click on a link or call a number.

Don’t disclose your personal or financial details during a cold call, and remember that the police and banks will never ring you and ask you to verify your PIN, withdraw your cash, or transfer your money to another “safe” account.   If you have been a victim of fraud or cyber crime, please report it to Action Fraud at http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/
