Crime Update Stapleford SW May 2014
In comparison with March 2014, we have seen a small increase in home burglaries.
We would advise residents to think about home security at all times, It is important to remember to make sure all doors and windows are secure not only when you leave the home but also when you are outside; for example tending to your garden chores or DIY in the garage. Burglars will not mind that you are in the garden or garage and are likely to still carry out their crime.
In comparison with March 2014, we have seen a reduction of theft from/of motor vehicle offences. Please keep up the good work and remove any items of value out of the vehicle, that’s also including the log book! Please remember to check that you vehicle is secure; do not rely on your central locking. This can sometimes fail.
In comparison with March 2014, we have seen a small increase in criminal damage offences. I would urge people to contact 101 and report any acts of this nature providing a good descriptions of persons/groups causing damage to property. In comparison with March 2014, we have seen a small increase in antisocial behaviour reports. A large proportion of calls are centered on noise complaints. We have no power to deal with noise complaints therefore the best department to contact is Broxtowe Borough Council’s environmental health team. They will send you diary sheets in order that you can evidence noise issues you have.
You must then send your completed diary sheets to Broxtowe Borough Council at Beeston. To contact Broxtowe Borough Council call 0115 917 7777.
A weekly market is now in operation in Stapleford. It is currently being held in the town’s Walter Parker Square and will run every Tuesday starting at the end of March.
The market will be run by a not-for-profit organisation called Stall-it who have already set up a successful weekly market in Beeston.
It is hoped that the market will bring new people into the town and help independent retailers reach a wider audience.
Hemlock Happening will be held on Saturday 7 June 2014. There will be a full programme of entertainment and it is anticipated that many thousands of people will attend and everyone will have a great time.
The opening ceremony will be at 1pm on the Main Stage which, unlike previous years, will be in Bramcote Hills Park rather than the Walled Garden. Staged events will continue on the Main Stage throughout the day ending with a fabulous firework display at 10:30pm.
There will be many additional activities in Bramcote Hills Park from 1pm to 5pm which includes an additional dance programme on a separate stage. This year’s headline band is TI Funk on stage at 9.30pm.
The event is organised by the Bramcote and Stapleford Golden Jubilee Group in association with the Arts and Events Team at Broxtowe Borough Council.
