Day of Action Hartwell Drive

Representatives from the Council, Police, bpha Limited, Jephson & Aldwyck Housing Associations, and Fire and Rescue Service and other community safety partners will be holding a ‘Day of Action’ in Hartwell Drive on Saturday 2nd August  2014, between 11am and 3pm.

 

The aim of the day is to give local people the opportunity to meet with these community safety service providers and find out more about the services on offer; and to raise any specific community safety issues or concerns they have and discuss what can be done together to tackle them. 

 

The day will also see targeted action to address anti-social behaviour such as littering, dog fouling, graffiti, drug and alcohol misuse and other behaviour which may trouble local residents.  This will include enforcement patrols, education and information gathering.

 

Council officers will be carrying out a community clean-up which will include litter picking and graffiti removal.  Local police officers will be opening the mobile police station, on the mid-field, based on Hartwell Drive, where free crime prevention advice will be available, along with the opportunity to meet local Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators and representatives from the council and police anti-social behaviour teams.  Activities will also be available to keep young children entertained.

 

Fire service personnel will be in the area to provide fire safety and community safety advice for residents and taking practical steps to help reduce the risk of fire.

 

Councillor Sarah Jayne Holland, Portfolio Holder for Community and Regulatory Services, said: “This day of action demonstrates just how much we can do when we all work together.

 

“It also provides an excellent opportunity for a range of different organisations to speak directly to local residents and help tackle the issues that are affecting their lives.”

 

Chief Inspector Julian Frost, Bedfordshire Police said “These days of action are an excellent example of how local services can work in partnership together to help local communities.”
