GWENT POLICE ALERT

Gwent police have been notified by a victim that they had received an unknown message on Facebook from a person purporting to be a female, and when they clicked on the attached link this enabled the offender to access their phone. They then proceeded to send messages to all of her contacts, enter their Snapchat account and finally, access and steal from her online banking app. Gwent police would advise that you be cautious in opening any links in messages sent to you randomly by persons unknown to you.

If you do fall victim to such a crime please report this to Action Fraud  – online to Actionfraud@police.uk or by phone to 0300 123 2040

BOB WILCOX

We are sad to learn from Jill McVann that Bob Wilcox died late last night, having contracted Covid-19 in his Abergavenny nursing home.

Many in the village will remember Bob in his role as a local councillor and as headteacher of our village primary school.

Bob will always be remembered for the part he played in village life – he was recently seen in the video of 1995’s VE Day celebrations shown to mark the 75th anniversary – and all he did for Grosmont.
