Kempston Action Evening

Kempston residents are being invited to join an ‘Action Evening’ on Friday 2nd September to tackle problems such as anti-social behaviour, littering, graffiti and dog fouling.

The evening has been organised in response to requests from local residents who want to stop the small minority of people who use anti-social behaviour to blight their local communities.

Residents who attend the Action Evening will also be given the chance to join the Pride in Bedford Community Champion Scheme. This voluntary scheme provides local residents with a platform to raise issues, such as anti-social behaviour, which are affecting their local communities.

Councillor Sarah-Jayne Holland, Portfolio Holder for Community and Regulatory Services, said: “Concentrated efforts in local areas help us to tackle problems which are affecting local people.

“Our Community Champion Scheme offers local residents throughout Bedford Borough the opportunity to report issues of anti-social behaviour and this ‘Action Evening’ will encourage more people to get involved with the scheme and help to look after their local community.

“Many residents including volunteers that are part of the Dog watch scheme launched earlier this year, are already working together in Kempston and have informed us of some instances of anti-social behaviour. For example, we have been made aware of a number of fires being set on the riverbanks so we will take this opportunity to speak to people who regularly visit the area to ask them to be vigilant and provide information where possible.

“The evening is also a great opportunity for local residents to meet each other and get to know their neighbours which undoubtedly helps to create a greater sense of community.”

The Kempston Action Evening starts from 5.30 at The Grange Car Park.
