The aim is that in the Olympic year each rotary club receives a torch and passes it on to the next using a variety of transport to raise money for the charity Wheelpower, which provides sports wheelchairs and other equipment to disabled athletes. Simon Gorton, owner and partner Sloley Hall, near Worstead, is a member of the rotary club and helped to drive the tractor on Thursday, August 23. He estimated that they had raised around 100.

He said: It was a lovely day.

It was nice to have friendly waves from people as we drove to Aylsham.

Norfolk Constabulary: Catalytic converter marking 0

Norfolk Constabulary: Catalytic converter marking

29 August 2012 Dereham Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) is clamping down on catalytic converter theft with a special free security-marking day. Police are inviting drivers of commercial and non-commercial 4 x 4 vehicles and vans to come along to receive the free service. The event is taking place between 12pm – 5pm on Saturday 8 September at STS on Yaxham Road, Dereham.

Officers will be on hand to carry out the marking of the catalytic exhausts and will be available to discuss general vehicle crime prevention advice. Sergeant Steve Nimmock said: We work hard to combat this sort of crime with targeted patrols but crime prevention techniques like this are also essential to reducing crime. Not only does security marking provide an effective deterrent to potential criminals, it can help us to identify a stolen catalytic converter if it s found in a scrap yard.

We d like to thank STS for allowing us to use their premises for the day, allowing us to mark as many vehicles as possible. STS local manager Kevin Burt said: “We’re very pleased to be supporting Norfolk Constabulary in their bid to target catalytic converter theft. This sort of crime has a big impact on business and vehicle owners and is made all the more severe in the current economic environment.

Any steps we can take to prevent this is very welcome.” To book your vehicle in to be security marked, call Dereham Police Station on 101, or book with the station clerks at the front desk.
