News Report February 2016

Police Report

Unfortunately at the time of writing the police report was not available.

I am sure that most of you are aware that there has been an increase in burglaries in the village. If you see any suspicious cars or vans in the village please do report them to the police on 101. The police beat surgery in January was very well attended and our local police beat team were happy to discuss the recent crime in the village and offer advice on crime prevention. The next Beat Surgery is on Wednesday 24th February at 6:30pm in the Memorial Hall, we would encourage any parishioners with concerns to attend.

Village Verges

We will shortly be entering the new grass cutting season. Last year the Parish Council opted to take on the maintenance of the grass verges in the village and we will be continuing to do so this year. Almost half of our precept, £10,000,  is dedicated to grass cutting and keeping our village looking tidy. It is there therefore disappointing when the verges are churned up by vehicles by either parking on them or mounting the kerb to pass parked vehicles. Please could we ask that parishioners take care and park considerately.

Mantle Pieces Project

We are continuing to research the Mantle Pieces Project. If you are interested or would like to help in any way please do get in touch. We have had some concerns voiced over the cost of the project and we would like to assure parishioners that the project will be funded via grants.

Please Pick up after your Dogs

There are unfortunately still some owners that are not picking up after their dogs. We have put up extra posters in the worst affected areas and we would ask that these are not removed please.

The next meeting of Wymeswold Parish Council will be held on Monday 7th March 2016 in the Sports Pavilion, Burton Lane, Wymeswold, starting at 7:15pm. All parishioners are welcome to attend.
