SCAM WARNING TO EVERYONE
Most of us get agitated by cold calling telephone calls and do what we can to block or avoid them. One such way is to register with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS). However, some criminal elements are using that to defraud unsuspecting people. We have been made aware of people being contacted by telephone by those purporting to be from the TPS. They will either attempt to get you to 'sign up' to the service, for which you will be told there is a charge or that your TPS agreement is about to expire and needs to be renewed. Both will require all your personal details and credit card details to be provided. BEWARE - THIS IS A SCAM! The TPS is a FREE service and anyone wishing to register can find more details on their website at www.tpsonline.org.uk The TPS will never contact you requiring payments or credit card details and once registered there is no further need to update it. If you suspect you have been contacted by a fraudulent organisation the advice is to report it to Action Fraud at http://www.actionfraud.police.uk
Yaxley village is situated just off the A140, Suffolk, about 1 mile west of Eye and 20 miles north of Ipswich. There are just over 200 residential properties in the village, the 12th century church of St Mary, the Yaxley Community Centre, a Public House (the Cherry Tree), which now also accommodates the Post Office & Village Store, and one restaurant, the Bull Auberge.
The name ‘YAXLEY’ means cuckoo in a woodland clearing hence the village sign is illustrated with a cuckoo. The sign also depicts a ‘Sextons Wheel’ – the original wheel can still be found inside the 12th Century Church of St Mary, hanging high above the door.
The Yaxley Community Centre is run by the Community Council, which also takes a leading role in organising many of the events in the village. The Centre plays host to a number of clubs, the Cuckoo Club, Art Club, Garden Club,the Four Seasons Ladies Club and the Needlework and Craft group. These along with a number of other varied activities in the village keeps Yaxley a lively place to live.
