Vehicle Crime Prison Sentence and Goodbye Hazel

Three men who burgled the same home twice within days have now all been convicted and sentenced for their part in the offences.

In November 2018 a burglary occurred at a property in Burbage and during this incident £100,000 worth of items were stolen – including car keys and empty watch boxes. However, the cars weren’t taken.

The aggravated burglary committed in Burbage was particularly serious and one which was witnessed by the victims’ two young children.  The trauma of that evening will stay with them for a very long time. Full story via the link below.

Goodbye to Hazel, the principal officer at Burbage Parish Council. Hazel has put a huge amount of unseen work and hours into her role over the last few years and it will be very sad to see her leave. She has been a fantastic help and we have worked alongside to support the residents of Burbage as and when we can. You will be missed but Good luck in the future and a massive thank you from me and i am sure the residents of Burbage.
