Schubert Road March 2014 Update Letter

Dear Schubert Road Resident,

Following on from our very successful Jubilee Street Party in 2012 and progress we have made since then preventing cold callers on the road and campaigning for the council and Thames Water to make improvements, we are sending you an update from your Neighbourhood Watch Team.

Reminders for all residents:

  1. We are all volunteers and we do all this work to help make the road a lovely place to live – but we cannot do this on our own – we appreciate all help and really do need others to help take the strain – let us know if you can help with anything (leaflet distribution etc). We aim to make the NW cost neutral.  If you’re being asked to pay towards something – it’s only because ‘we’ can’t bear the whole cost ourselves.
  2. If you are invited to a street gathering or asked to vote on something or asked to do something – please RSVP to let us know you’re coming, please do VOTE when asked to ensure your voice and wishes are heard, please do ACT if asked, as without your assistance we can’t obtain bulk discounts/keep the Gardening/Book clubs going etc. Also we cannot cater for unconfirmed guests as we are a small group with limited time and resources.  Your help and cooperation in this matter make all the difference.
  3. Reminder about using Facebook/blog – please subscribe to the blog (schubertroad.org) and like us on Facebook (Schubert Road Neighbourhood Watch) to be kept up to date with all news, as we will no longer be sending out paperwork. If you have no internet access, please inform us and we can try to ensure that information is delivered to you by another means. This is also the best way to find out about local clubs (book/gardening etc.), babysitters, local contractors and events.
  4. If something is bothering you – let us know – perhaps we can help – perhaps others in the street are also struggling with a problem. It is much easier and more effective if we can act as a group.

Objectives of Schubert Road Neighbourhood Watch:

  1. To make the community a safer, more enjoyable place to live, work and play; looking out for the elderly, disabled and others in need of help.
  2. To promote issues such as security and safety, working closely with community groups including the Metropolitan Police, Council etc. and when there are issues putting pressure on these and other groups – Councils, Police, the Water Board, mis-behaving neighbours etc. to solve the problem.
  3. To share Information on local and tried contractors, babysitters, house sitters etc.

Please take a look at the other side of this letter to find details of our exciting new Schubert Road Bake Off happening this summer!

Best wishes,

Louise, Daphne, Paddy and Anne

 

Below is the invitation for our Schubert Road Bake Off Street Party:

Schubert Road Street Party Invite 2014

Jubilee Street Party

7159568415_d01c75a05a_b

The Jubilee Street Party took place on Monday 4th June and despite some rain, was a great success.  Not only did it achieve our original aim of more people in the street getting to know each other, but we also managed to do something as a street (the only previous street party was in 1953).

Anne, Daphne, Louise and Paddy want to say a special big Schubert Road ‘thank you’ to Barry no (21) for his energy, inspiration and massive contribution to making the day such a roaring success.

The contributions we collected more than covered the costs of the party, and so Anne contacted the Council about planting some more trees on the street (there are gaps and also some had fallen down).  Two trees were planted on December 5th 2012 outside numbers 37/39 and 12. The cost for the Jubilee tree was £50 and we got the other one free.

With the remainder we have put aside money for a website and we will be donating/have donated £250 to the Hospital for Neuro-Disability on West Hill.  This is both local and the Queen is a Patron and so it seemed suitable as a recipient of the proceeds of a Jubilee event.7159631983_b67b2518c5_b 7159611433_d1084d68ed_b 7159620763_176001ae36_b

John (no. 45) took many photographs which can be seen here.
