Free property marking kits!

Dear Colton Parish residents

Last Tuesday we launched our Farm Watch Selectamark DNA property marking campaign at Ulverston Auction Mart to try and reduce rural thefts in the South Lakes area.  With the night’s drawing in we are seeing an increase in rural thefts along with poaching incidents and are aiming to deter as many as possible.

While I appreciate the majority of you will have benefitted from our previous campaign (no you can’t have it again) could you mention it to your neighbours and pass on our details.  As with our last campaign we have a limited number of kits on a first come first served basis.
