Kent has earned a hard-won reputation for tough and effective biosecurity to protect plant, animal and human health.
Avian influenza (or bird flu) has recently been confirmed in wild birds in Dorset and Warwickshire, with an ‘avian influenza prevention zone’ now declared covering England.
It is vital that we all remain vigilant and report any wild birds found dead without obvious cause (especially wildfowl such as swans, geese and ducks) to the Defra helpline on 03459 33 55 77.
Any unexplained deaths amongst captive birds, such as poultry or gamebirds, should also be reported to the Animal and Plant Health Agency on 03000 20 03 01.

Are you passionate, enthusiastic and up for a new challenge? Do you like meeting new people, want to learn new skills and provide valuable support to local residents? Kent County Council, working in conjunction with the Kent Association of Local Councils are recruiting Volunteer Support Warden’s in selected areas. The role will be challenging but rewarding and you’ll be making a real difference to local communities. For more information and to find out which areas this role is being launched contact Community Wardens on 03000 413455 or visit:
The public can now report crimes and incidents as well as non-injury road traffic collisions ONLINE directly to us through our website (www.kent.police.uk). Once a report is made to us online, the user will receive a unique reference number and a return email confirming receipt.
We are promoting both as a test/pilot at this stage. At the end of each form is the opportunity for the public making a report to give us feedback on using the forms.
The overall aim is to provide another choice for how the public can report crime or incidents as well as try to reduce the number of people calling 101 on non-urgent issues that could easily be dealt with through digital contact (which increasingly a lot of people prefer and have asked us to provide).

Clerk to Eastry Parish Council
Kent Trading Standards warn residents about criminals pretending to be Trading Standards officers to defraud vulnerable victims out of hundreds of thousands of pounds.
How the fraud works
The criminal visits or calls residents who have previously been victims of crime claiming to be a Trading Standards officer using false identification.
They tell the resident that following a Trading Standards investigation into their previous complaint they are entitled to compensation.
They tell the resident they need to pay some money to release the compensation awarded by the Court.
Some residents are being told they must also pay the VAT that wasn’t paid from the original crime
What to do
Tell the caller you need to speak to a friend or relative and hang up.
If they are at your door politely say you need to speak to a friend or relative and close the door.
REMEMBER: Trading Standards will NEVER ask for cash and you would NEVER be asked to pay money to receive compensation.
WARNING: Telephone callers may insist you hang up and check their ID by calling a number they give to you. This is part of the fraud. Criminals stay on the line and pretend to be Trading Standards to verify the caller. Report these calls to Kent Police at your local Police station.
Residents that have previously been victims of doorstep crime are particularly at risk so please warn neighbours, friends and/or relatives if you think they may be targeted.
