Calling All Cars!

Auntie Glad, Like all other Trelawnyd-ites 
Should be on full alert

This is a purely Trelawnyd based blog entry. Mrs Trellis had just called around with a squeaky toy for Mary and was having tea and  cake with the Prof when I bumped into Doctor's wife Pippa down the lane. She informed me that there had been another break in, in Trelawnyd and that Mrs H's bungalow on Rhodfa Arthur's had been the target and the police were on their way.
So message to all.....be on your guard and keep your doors locked........they are out there.......out in the dark.............

  1. How Sad. I must admit although I live in Edinburgh sometimes forget to lock conservatory door.
    My mum lives in a highland village , no one locks anything, mums reasoning and everyone else's is we have an open house, if anyone wants to pop in and they do they are welcome.
    Yes sure is naive in today's world. But until the trust is broken I love that.
    I when I visit just walk in to friends and neighbours houses.
    But we are a close community.

  4. Sad but that's the shape of things in todays world. When I was small our population was 15,000 and we knew everyone and no doors were locked. Now our population has shrunk to 7,ooo and so many new ones that I don't know and we lock up tight at night. You may have to investigate? The games afoot!

    Twice is a pattern so maybe you can catch them soon.

    1. My mum has always left a £20 note on the table just inside front door reasoning snatch thief will grab it n run. My sis police seargent in met continually says no mum they will think you rich then ransack house.
      Guess sis only meets criminals , mum never does :). Getting the balance of risk, reality , and preserving a lovely life is the key!.

  9. After my husband died , I was very nervous living here, especially at night. My neighbors are in their 80s, we all live on large properties and I know no one would hear me if I called for help.

    So there are locks and cats and plans to leave.

    I went out to the garage, which is connected to the house, a door in the kitchen .. and saw that the door to the outside (back of the garage) had been messed with. Someone tried to break the lock.

    I called the police. There was nothing to do but make the door strong and locked up and to be careful, but they drive by more often than they used to .. I will be moving , living alone with 2 cats in the country is not good for my nerves .. the night part anyway.

    I happen to be a really good shot ( a story for another time) but I don't have a gun.
    I think it is terrible that this happened in your village.
    Can it have anything to do with new people moving in ??

  10. Sorry to see your worries over there are the same as ours in GunlandAmerica. Fewer, I hope.
    Spent a night in London, fog at Heathrow, had a nice lamb stew and a pint at a B&B near the airport.

  13. I am sad to hear of that John, unfortunately I think it is on the increase in parts of the world. A neighbour one house down was robbed and it made me feel very unsettled for some time.

  16. So sorry to hear that the mentality of no respect for peoples' property has come to Trelawnyd. Hope you all stay safe.

  17. Hope they get cocky and are caught before worse happens. I worry over Aunt Glad. x

  18. Up until I moved to this house 13 years ago, I only locked my doors at night. Now I have it locked up and alarmed. Drugs are behind most of the crimes and a generation of our young people are lost. So very sad for all of us.

  19. We still never lock the house, and so far no problems. I presume that Mrs H didn't have a dog in the house. A dog and a gun; that's what's needed.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Would the dogs be a deterrent or would they lick the thieves to death?

    1. That would be my late dog ... he led them in and sat for them.

  21. We have had several instances of people coming out into their kitchens in the evening and finding that someone has come into the house and is standing there. Very scary for anyone living alone. The police here have advised everyone to lock their doors even in the day time when they are in.

  22. It is very possible that this blog is drawing thieves to Trelawnyd. Until you started your ongoing village tales, nobody had even heard of the place and the thieves of North Wales were happy to stick to the millionaire mansions down the road in Rhyl-on-Sea.

    1. Yes, but the bloodthirsty pitt bulls and glass cases of vipers in closets were not mentioned.

  23. I am sorry to hear that and hope none of your elderly neighbors or anyone for that matter, are ever home when it happens. I would rather they lose a few things than get hurt.

  24. My mum in law once had a person come into her house, and reach right across her in her arm chair to grab her purse off the table in the corner. She thinks he must have been looking at her through her front window and seen where her bag was, then come in via the kitchen door, which was open to cool the house after a hot Aussie day. She locked up after that and stayed hot instead. (I'd have bought a bloody GSD!) I'm just glad he didn't hurt her.
