Whilst delivering the Street Party Invitations and Reminders recently, we found that quite a few flat residents were buzzing us in (opening the communal front door from their Entryphone System) without checking who we were. Please don’t do that as you are making it very easy for people to break into your neighbours homes. Any genuine visitor won’t mind waiting until you come to the communal front door nor will they mind giving their credentials. Don’t forget this is a Cold Calling Zone so no one should be asking you to buy something on your doorstep – if they do ask you to buy something – take their details (and give them to neighbourhood watch) and tell them This is a No Cold Calling Zone – fines of up to £5,000 can be made on those not adhering to this.
Please also remember to check you have shut ALL car windows and secured you car – we found a number of windows left open recently.
Following a recent break in at a property on Oakhill Road. Please ensure you shut AND lock all side gates. With this warm weather please ensure you also shut and lock all windows and doors even if you’re only popping down to the shops for a few minutes…it only takes a minute for people to enter and steal belongings.
New Bicycle Racks have been installed this morning on the corner of Schubert Road and Oakhill Road for us all to use…Well Done and Many Thanks to Wandsworth Council for acting on the wishes of so many residents on our Road…
With the weather warming up. Please remember to shut and lock all windows and doors – even if you are just popping out to the shops for a few minutes.
Further to our post on 10th December 2013…
The number to arrange for FREE smoke/fire detectors to be installed by the Fire Brigade is 020 8555 1200 x37621.
Cycle crime victims can apply for a new bike from the Wandsworth Bike Project. Young people are taught bicycle repair and maintenance skills as part of a community sentence, and then fix up bikes which are given to victims of bike crime.
The council’s Youth Offending Team runs the Wandsworth Bike Project from the Training and Resource Centre in Alma Road.
As part of a community sentence, young people are taught bicycle repair and maintenance skills and fix up bikes which are then given to victims of bike crime. The bikes are donated by the public and by the police.
The scheme cannot guarantee you will be provided with a suitable bike straight away, but it does try to match people to bikes as soon as possible.
More information …
If you have been the victim of bike crime and would like to apply for a new bike email Rebecca Lynn at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her on 020 8871 5571.
Has your bike been stolen? You can go along to Wandsworth Police Station on the 21st June 2014 and see if it is among those recovered by the Police. There is also a bike marking event there too…
We now have lists of local…
Key holders (If you have a cleaner, a friend or family member who lives or works nearby – let us know – so if there’s a problem and you’re away we can call your key holder to come and fix the problem i.e. Alarm, leak etc).
