       HAVE YOU SEEN OUR BARRIERS? 

 

After nearly three years of incidents of fly-tipping costing hundreds of pounds to remove and pressure from residents and the Parish Council barriers were installed at Old Church Road on 9th October only for two of the barriers to immediately be removed and stolen from the London Road end of Old Church Road. 

 

The Parish Council  spoke with Essex County Council Officers on the afternnon of 9th and discussions with them confirmed that they are investigating and will be taking action to rectify the issue. If anyone has any information regarding this incident please contact the Parish Clerk (Contact details on the top of this page)

 

 

COMMUNITY SPEED WATCH  

 

CAN YOU HELP?

 

DO YOU WANT TO SLOW SPEEDS DOWN IN OUR VILLAGE?

 

Traffic speeding though our village is on the increase.

 

The Parish Council is proposing to set up a Community Speed Watch Project in order to help reduce speeding in Pound Lane and Burnt Mills Road.

 

The purpose of the Community Speed Watch is to alert the Police to drivers who do not respect the speed limits through our village but the Parish Council cannot do this alone. It needs more volunteers to help those who have already put their names forward to make the project a success.

 

if you are interested in taking part in the project then contact either:

 

       Parish Councillor Terry Potter

                  (M) 07867615875

Christine Barlow, Parish Council Clerk

       01268 725236 (M 07758255621

 

No training is needed as training is being arranged through the Essex Fire & Rescue Service who now manage the Scheme.

 

                                              

 

 

                                  

                                                                                                     

   NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH

   COULD YOU BE A STREET CO-ORDINATOR?

 

Neighbourhhod Watch is about local people coming together to create friendlier and safer communities where crime and anti-social behaviour activties can be less likely to happen.

It is not about curtain twitching!

 

The Parish Council has now recruited a volunteer area co-ordinator to assist with the role but it needs street co-ordinators to support passing the information she sends on to neighbours and other members of the Watch.

 

It does not take up alot of time and information is sent via email or if you don't have email in note form.

 

If you are interested in volunteering contact the Parish Clerk in the first instance on:

Tel:  01268 25236  or pleased to pass your details on. We look forward to hearing from you.
