Bulls Head under new management

After an incredibly successful 10 and a half year run Vernon Leese finally left The Bulls Head in mid August this year. The village pub has now been taken over by two local business men, Matthew Coady and Andrew Harding. “Listening to our locals, and what they want The Bulls Head to be is what’s really important to us. So, we will be giving you the opportunity to voice your opinion via a suggestions box at the pub, and on a simple on line form which you can fill out at our web site. Remember, it’s your local pub..we’re only manning the pumps, and we look forward to seeing you very soon”
Matt, Andy and Steve.

Popular features of the pub’s legacy, such as Live Music with current favourite bands and singers, Jam Nights a showcase for our local undiscovered talent, and of course the sports elements such as Darts, Golf, Pool, etc.and traditional games like Bat and Trap will continue to be part of the everyday life of the Bulls Head. The famous and much missed WHAT’S ON GUIDE will be back very soon, so you can keep up with live events at the pub, our new menu, and our arrangements for this Christmas.

Cycle theft warning from our Safer Neighbourhood Team

Across London there has been a growing trend of stealing cycles from garages and sheds. In your role as NHW coordinators could you please ask all of your NHW colleagues to be particularly vigilant to this type of crime and advise local communities of the benefits of two good quality locks placed on cycles (as thieves generally carry only one type of tool) and securing them to an immovable object. Audible sheds alarms are also a great deterrent and please lock away tools.

To successfully deal with this type of crime the MPS seeks information as to where these stolen cycles are being taken to and sold from. We would ask NHW and cycle clubs / enthusiasts to contact police if they become aware of any premises (residential or other) where different cycles are being regularly seen there. A recent arrest found a male with 3 stolen cycles in the living room of his flat and he was busy filing off the serial numbers. Many stolen cycles are being sold through the Internet. Cycle enthusiasts who regularly visit specialists sites can help the police combat this type of crime by reporting web activity and adverts which lead them to believe stolen cycles are being sold. It is the cyclists with specialist knowledge who can assist police by being our eyes and ears against crimes being committed against your community

Anyone having information or concerns should contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
