HMRC Council Tax Email Scam

Local resident highlights HMRC scam

Cotswold District Council is alerting residents about an email scam following a tip off from a local resident.

An email message claiming to be from the HM Revenue and Customs informs the recipient that they are due a refund of Council Tax and instructs them to click to submit a request for the refund. 

This is NOT genuine and residents receiving the email are advised to delete it immediately.

No Mobile, When Mobile

Will you help make using a mobile phone when driving socially      unacceptable?

The Road Safety Partnership is seeking everyone’s help with this brand new safety campaign. Its aim is to change people’s attitudes about mobile phones and driving through a blend of engagement, education and police enforcement.

Using mobile phones is one of the most dangerous behaviours for motorists, putting drivers, passengers and others on the road at risk of death and serious harm. Unfortunately, it is a behaviour seen too frequently on our roads, but together we can help to make it socially unacceptable.

The national campaign will run between 14th and 20th November – please support this campaign.
