Whilst work is being done could we kindly ask if users of the pool could park with care and not park on the double yellow lines as this is a safety hazard for children arriving and leaving the pool.

THAMES VALLEY POLICE ALERT COUNCIL TAX SCAM
Message from Action Fraud - Fraudsters have been phoning victims telling them that they have been placed in the wrong Council Tax bracket for a number of years and are entitled to a rebate. They normally say the rebate should be worth about £7,000.
Once the victim is convinced, the fraudster tells them that in order to receive the rebate they will need to pay an administration fee in advance. This amount varies between £60-£350. The victim provides the details and makes the payment, but then is no longer able to make contact with the person they spoke to on the phone. When they phone their Council about the rebate the Council will confirm that they know nothing about it and that they have been contacted by fraudsters.
Never respond to unsolicited phone calls.
Your local council won't ever phone to discuss a council tax rebate. If you receive a call of this nature put the phone down straight away.
No legitimate organisation will ask you to pay an advanced fee in order to receive money, so never give them your card details.
