Having heard reports of a break-in locally, and been in receipt of an increasing number of fake emails and texts, it's time for some security reminders :-

Alerts : You can sign up here to receive alerts from various agencies (Police, Fire and Rescue, Action Fraud, etc) and set the types of message you want to receive.

Unwanted phone calls : The Telephone Preference Service describes itself as "The free opt out service enabling you to record your preference on the official register and not receive unsolicited sales or marketing calls." You can do that here. Sadly not 100% effective, as it doesn't stop automated calls from remote jurisdictions.
For mobiles, you can report to your service provider by forwarding the message to 7726. More details from OFCOM here.

Scam emails : You can report scam emails by forwarding them to report@phishing.gov.uk
You should not report a crime in this way. If you think you may have been a victim of fraud or cyber crime, and live in England, Wales or Northern Ireland, you should report this to Action Fraud or by calling 0300 123 2040.

In general be thoughtful about opening unexpected or otherwise suspicious emails, and following links, even if they appear to come from respectable sources. As an example a recent email claimed to be from: "Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) - Gov.uk" but the address it came from was wcmsnwlq@telenet.be ( .be - Belgium - seems to be a popular source).
In the words of Alastor Moody, 'constant vigilance' ... and don't forget to back up your data!

    Welcome to the web site of the Summersdale Residents’ Association (SRA). We are the largest such Association in the district of Chichester covering much of the North of the city. We have approximately 400 member houses representing over 1000 adults. The work is staffed entirely by volunteers from varying walks of life and the committee meets 8 times a year.  Members are always welcome at committee meetings.

    The Association is an integral part of the Summersdale area of Chichester. It aims to encourage community spirit, to preserve and improve the environment and amenities and to foster the interests of Summersdale residents.

    We represent you on a number of local committees including the :-

  • Network of Chichester Residents' Associations
  • Goodwood Aerodrome and Motor Circuit Consultative Committees
  • Local Transport Forum
  • NE Forum
  • In addition we have close contacts with the Chichester Society, the East Broyle Residents Association and local Neighbourhood Watch Groups.

    We monitor planning applications proposed in the Summersdale area and lodge objections where appropriate, in addition to keeping a watching brief on wider development activities in the area.

    Our web site will give you all the details including how you can join for the very modest fee of £5 per household per year, and we look forward to you taking a positive interest in the activities of our Association.
