Intruder in Inveresk Estate in the early hours 30.6.18

Dear neighbours,

Just after 1.00am on the morning of 30th June, the security light in our courtyard was triggered. Fortunately, Atholl noticed this and looked out to see a male lurking by our cars. He rattled on the window and the person made a hasty exit. Ian and the boys took a walk round the Estate but there was no sign of him.

He was of slimmish build, a bit above average height, with a narrow face and pointed features wearing a grey ‘beanie’ hat and dark clothing.

Fortunately, our cars were locked and no damage was done.

We have reported the incident to the police. The policeman asked that if anyone else saw anything last night, could they also please report it.

Unless he came over the wall from the riverside, of which there is no sign, then he would have passed other cars on his way to our house and could have tried to access them too. Worth checking to see if anyone has had anything taken.

Another reminder to remain vigilant and ensure cars and garages are locked overnight and no keys left in sight.

Oak saplings

My neighbour Ian Finlay has two very small oak saplings that have grown from acorns in a large tub.  He cannot do anything with them and wondered whether anyone in the village would like them to plant in their garden.  He has asked me to get something on the village website to see if there is any interest.  If anyone is interested they should contact me on 665 1418.

Inveresk Sign

The council officers have stated that they are happy with the principle of

our Inveresk sign to one of Stephen Edward’s designs but there is some more work to

be done on locations and any necessary permissions.  In the meantime they

have asked us to decide which sign is our preference.  In this respect could you give me your views (top, middle, bottom is

how I think we will have to identify them)?  If people could email their

preference to me ( by the end of July I will put the

matter to the Village Society committee.

Regards, Barry
