Good Afternoon, Ramsey District Members –
Here is our weekly summary of offences and incidents affecting your community, covering the period 19th to 25th May:
Field Road, Ramsey – A woman was verbally abused and intimidated by one of a group of three males whilst she was shopping on Field Road on Tuesday lunchtime, 19th May. The suspect insulted the woman when she pointed out that only two people were allowed in the shop at any one time. Police hope that the incident will have been caught on CCTV. (Ref 35/32879/20)
Bodsey Toll Road, Ramsey Mereside – Police received several reports of a car seen in a ditch on Bodsey Toll Road on Wednesday morning, 20th May.

And Finally - #NotJustArrests !
When they are able, officers on patrol like to bring a smile to the faces of children who are stuck in the house, coping with lockdown and the Coronavirus situation. Here are three examples of how Huntingdonshire officers have cheered up families this week:
On Wednesday 20th May, a police patrol was able to drop by and cheer up a six year old girl and her two year old brother, coping with having been in lockdown since March. The young lady has a debilitating medical condition, but she was delighted by the police car’s flashing lights and the officers were equally impressed by her amazing spirit.
On Friday morning, 22nd May, officers dropped round to see a young lady who had just celebrated her seventh birthday. Due to a rare medical condition, this brave girl has had to spend a lot of time in hospital, and is due for another operation sometime soon. The officers loved meeting her and hearing about her hopes and ambitions, which include riding horses and one day maybe joining the police herself!
Also on Friday, two PCSOs found time to drop by and surprise another young lady who was celebrating her eighth birthday. She was apparently very impressed with the police car’s flashing lights and siren, as well as birthday wishes from the Force Control Room sent over the radio!
