Anti-Social Behaviour on SideLey Park

Anti-Social Behaviour on SideLey Park

Tue, 19 Jun 2018 13:28 by Admin

As many people will be aware, volunteers are currently working hard on SideLey Park in order to keep the space clean, tidy and weed free for all to enjoy.

We are therefore concerned to report some anti social behaviour in that someone recently took a bag of weeds that was waiting to be collected and threw them around, near and inside the small children's play area. One of the volunteers cleaned up as best they could. More »

There has been some other recent and disappointing activity in that three youths with bikes are taking pleasure from vandalising the planting and causing other trouble around SideLey. They have been seen pulling out plants, biking through the flower beds, but when challenged, they deny doing it.

We would be most grateful if everyone could keep an eye on the Park in order to try to prevent the anti social behaviour. If you go out walking, perhaps you could ensure that SideLey Park forms part of your route as the more people that are on the Park should deter such behaviour. If the damage is being caused by school children then this is likely to be done after 3.30pm and at weekends.

The matter has been reported to the Police and the Parish Clerk has requested increased patrols.

If anyone sees anything but does not want to approach the offenders, please gather as much information as possible to pass on to the Parish Council such as the date and time the incident occurred and a description. Any incidents can also be reported to the Police on 101.

Volunteers and the Parish Council are working hard to ensure that the Park can be enjoyed by all and are determined to ensure that it is not spoiled by the minority.

Thank you. » Less

Shepshed Foodbank has asked the parish council if we could make a call for food items. We would like to arrange a collection shortly, so please bring your items to the Parish Council Offices by Thursday 28th June. All donations are very gratefully received. Thank you. More »

The foodbank is currently making up 48 hampers per week and the number is increasing all the time.

The foodbank has plenty of baked beans, soup and pasta but would particularly like tinned meats and fish (for example, Fray Bentos pies which can be bought for £1 - other brands are available!).

The parish council offices can be used as a drop off point as well as Picture This on 3A Dragwell.
