Recently there have been thefts and attempted thefts from local fishing boats – including propellers. One assumes for their scrap value.
In general there is not a problem with security on the beach but it has been noticed lately that 'undesirables' dressed in their community service overalls and left unattended (whilst the 'gang master' has tea in the local cafe) ostensibly picking up litter. These convicted persons have been seen to be paying more attention to the properties than to the litter on the ground.
If individuals are given community service as part of a punishment for their undisclosed crime – should they not be better supervised?
In the meantime if any visitor to Dungeness or indeed local sees anything out of the ordinary or suspicious please let the local boys in blue know! Their number is quite easy to remember – 999!
