|A large number of NOS canisters were found between Bourton on the Water and Great Rissington. We urge people to be aware of the dangers of taking NOS and the dangers of taking it with alcohol.
Nitrous Oxide also known as NOS is a colourless gas sold in canisters and usually inhaled using a balloon, NOS can be dangerous when inhaled.
Inhaling too much NOS can make a person faint, lose consciousness or suffocate from lack of oxygen. People have died from inhaling too much NOS and suffocating.
Mixing NOS and alcohol increases the risk of respiratory depression and loss of consciousness.
Other common names for NOS are; Laughing gas, nitro, N2O, NOS, whippet, hippy crack, buzz bomb and balloons.

We have been made aware of a Covid Vaccine Passport scam email going around that purports to be from the NHS and informs recipients that they can apply for their “Digital Coronavirus Passports”
Clicking on the link within the email, takes you to a convincing but fake NHS website that asks for personal and payment details. (for an admin fee)
The website has since been taken down, but in case similar emails/websites appear can you please circulate the attached alert to your residents, members, groups and mailing lists.
And just to reiterate, your vaccination status is obtained FREE through the NHS App, website or by calling the NHS on 119.
More information can be found on the gov.uk website;
Please note that any Phishing scams can be reported to SERS (Suspicious Email Reporting Service): firstname.lastname@example.org

We have been asked by a number of local landowners to remind the public to keep to public footpaths. This is to protect crops and to protect wildlife in the margins. Some owners have reported signs placed to remind walkers to keep to footpaths have been torn down and discarded in the hedge rows.
Please follow the Country Code, pick up after your dogs and take all your rubbish home with you. In Chipping Campden recently, a number of cows had to be slaughtered after ingesting dog mess which made them abort their calves.
