There has been an increase in fake text messages, claiming to be from the NHS, instructing people to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccine. The texts contain a link to an online form, which looks very similar to the real NHS website, where people are asked to input their details.
REMEMBER THAT COVID-19 VACCINATIONS ARE FREE OF CHARGE.
The NHS will never:
ask for your bank details or card details
ask for your PIN or banking passwords
arrive unannounced at your home to administer the vaccine
ask for documentation to prove identity, such as passports or bills

Please see the below note from West Midlands Police with regard to their handling of anti-social behaviour in Noble Way.
This is the second incident of anti-social behaviour that the Police have had to address and we thank them for their hard work and fairness in keeping us safe. Please stay alert
Earlier this year we supplied you all with a COVID-19 poster to highlight when a neighbour was in need of support.
A further poster, reminding everyone to keep following the Public Health messages, has now been produced and can be downloaded for use where appropriate. If you are aware of a neighbour who does not possess the necessary technology, please print the poster for them.
Our thanks for your help and please stay safe
Cheswick Green Residents Association
Dear Fellow Resident,
As the Residents Association for Cheswick Green and Cheswick Place, our key objective is to engender local spirit and make the village a better place to live.
This is largely done by organising social events, competitions, litter picks, taking care of the planters (including those outside the school) and recognising residents who make a contribution to the village. We also work with the Council and Police to ensure that local opinion is taken into account. During this pandemic we organised the printing and distribution of a Coronavirus window display which has been prevalent throughout the village.
Although our running costs are comparatively small, we normally ask residents for a small contribution. However, as a result of the pandemic and its implications, it has been decided to suspend subscriptions for this year. Our costs will be taken from reserves which are held for emergencies.
The Residents Association is run by a small group of residents who undertake the bulk of work. However, in recent years our numbers have become depleted. Going forward, we plan to hold quarterly meetings with an online update each month.
While the work of the Residents Association is much appreciated, without the input of new members there is a risk that it will cease to exist. If you feel that the Residents Association is doing a good job and would be prepared to invest a few hours to help the community, please contact us at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
YOUR HELP IN ENSURING THAT OUR VILLAGE REMAINS A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED.
The Cheswick Green Residents Association meet on the first Wednesday of the month, 8:00pm in the Village Hall.
CHESWICK RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION
Albeit in its early stages, Coronavirus will have a major negative impact on us all and the manner in which we conduct our lives. In particular, senior citizens and the vulnerable will be at the greatest risk.
The Government guidance will see the elderly self-isolating and during this time, they will experience limited contact with the added risk of essential supplies running short.
In order to identify those in need of help, the Residents Association will supply all residents with two visuals for display in a prominent window. The green visual will signal that all is well and the red visual that support is needed.
Clearly, “face to face” conversations are not advised, but if you come across a red visual being displayed, please make every effort to contact the resident and offer them support.
We thank you for your anticipated help.
