Bamforths, Crosspool has been targeted by thieves

A series of break ins have been reported in Crosspool over the last few weeks.

Bamforths and CKs in the precinct and houses on Manchester Road, Watt Lane and Cardonesss Road have been targeted.

Adrian Well, the owner of Bamforths greengrocer, sent this message of thanks to local residents: “Many of you know my shop was broken into and burgled last week. Whilst it was a thoroughly unpleasant experience, the kindness and support I received from the whole community was really cheering.

“All of your kind words were really appreciated, offers to help clear up were amazing, bottles of wine (and any other alcoholic gift) are always most welcome!

“Many of you will know that taking on the shop is a big change in my life. The reasons for taking this on are many. The hours and pay are certainly not two of them. But, the support I received has helped me appreciate how much local shops are a bedrock of a community. You’ve made me proud to live and work among you. Thanks again.”

If you see anything suspicious, don’t hesitate to contact the police by ringing 101.
