GLADMAN RESPONSE TO QUESTIONS AT THE PARISH COUNCIL MEETING OF 4TH NOVEMBER CAN BE VIEWED HERE


The Parish Council is aware that there has been an increase in incidents of vandalism and anti-social behaviour in The Grove/Lyndhurst Drive/ the Hooe Playing Field & Priory Playing Fields

 We have taken as many steps as we can to try and curb these incidences and the local PCSO has been monitoring the situation as best she can.  This is obviously restricted to the amount of time available given the large area that each PCSO is responsible for.

We have also requested assistance from the Police helicopter over both the Hooe and Priory Playing fields where there have also been problems.

We would like to ask you help in identifying any incidents of vandalism or anti-social behaviour wherever and whenever they occur by telephoning the local Police on 101 and reporting anything that you can and getting an incident number.
You may have to leave a message for them to call back.
Alternatively you can call the PCSO on 07711 147171.

The more information that can be provided the more likely it is that those responsible can be identified and then the Police can take appropriate action.
