Cyber Security Tool For All

Cyber Security Tool For All


Good morning,

A great handy free tool here to check if you have an account that has been compromised in a data breach.

www.haveibeenpwned.com

Enter your E-Mail address and see if you have an account that has been compromised.

If it has then check out the compromise and change your password for specified account.

If its not a specific account you may have to change passwords for all your accounts, especially if you use the same password for multiple accounts.

Thank you and have a good day


The Parish Council have Moved to the Library

As of this week, Dickens Heath Parish Council have moved in to share premises with Dickens Heath Library and will be located on the 1st floor.

The co-location will help both of our organisations become more sustainable in the future and brings together two important local community services into the same building.  We also hope that it will offer opportunities to extend library opening hours in the future, offer shared activities and support each other.

The first floor will now accommodate the Parish Council and our meetings, and will also offer an open space for community use, including study space for students when there are no meetings taking place. 

We will be settling in over the next few weeks, so please bear with us if we take a little longer than usual to answer any queries.
