BRITISH LEGION HOUSE TO HOUSE POPPY COLLECTION IN MINSTEAD

This year it is very unlikely that you will have someone collecting down your road but boxes will be placed in the Shop, the Social Club, the Trusty Servant pub and in the garage on the A31. There will be pins and wrist bands in the Shop and Social Club.  If you have difficulty obtaining pins or wrist bands and would like them please contact Helen Bennett directly and she can get some to you. Also if anyone wants to help with house to house next year, or even belatedly this year, please also contact her

ARMISTICE DAY SATURDAY 11TH NOVEMBER

Armistice Day, also known as Remembrance Day, is the day which marked the end of the First World War and is now the occasion on which we can remember the fallen of both World Wars and since. At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month the two minute silence is observed throughout the country and this year the Lyndhurst Branch of the Royal British Legion will hold a ceremony of Remembrance including a two minute silence at the Minstead War Memorial on the Green.

If you can spare just half an hour to remember and reflect please join us there at 10.50a.m a week next Saturday.

 HAMSHIRE POLICE TARGET POACHING

Hampshire Police are stepping up operations to target poaching, hare coursing and other rural crimes.
These damaging illegal activities increase during late autumn following the cutting of crops and as the hours of darkness grow.

BAD RABBIT

This is not a rural crimal (!) but a new Cyber Attack affecting Eastern Europe.

It is a Ransomware attack and will encrypt files and demand a ransom in order to get them decrypted.  So far there have been no reported attacks in the UK, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be targeted!

Bad Rabbit infects systems by popping up on computers and saying that Flash needs updating, or that you need to install Flash.  Flash is a piece of software that is installed on many computers.  It allows media such as videos and animation etc on websites to run.  From time to time updates are needed but you shouldn’t see any pop ups about it.  If you find that you get this pop up then you are strongly advised not click to install.

For further information and advice have a look at the web and see this BBC article.
