St Breward Community Newsletter – Saturday 11th December 2021

The Parish Council is aware that over the last few weeks flyers advertising an app/website called  NextDoor (, have been delivered to homes in the Parish, including one purporting to come from a ‘Denis’;  the Parish should be aware that this is not Denis Lusby, the Chairman of the Parish Council.

The Parish Council does not know the authenticity of, nor does it endorse, this app/website and would advise Parishioners to think carefully before signing up to unsolicited apps/websites without carrying out due diligence.
