Just a quick post to remind residents that our Neighbourhood Police Team have a very useful webpage, which you can access here.
The page includes contact details for the officers covering each of the neighbourhoods within the ward, together with local news and other useful info.
You can also follow the team’s day to day work across the area on Twitter: @ShardEndPolice.
The misuse of quad bikes is one of the main issues that residents across the ward are raising with me at the moment. There are real and understandable concerns over dangerous driving our streets and the abuse of some of our open spaces.
The police can and will act to deal with these problems, but of course they need evidence about who the owners and perpetrators are in order to do so. We can all help them by passing on any information about properties where these bikes are kept and the identities of those involved. I regularly pass them details that come to my attention and am also happy to do so on behalf of other local residents. Alternatively, you can pass information directly to the police via the new, non-emergency telephone number, 101.
The next meeting of the Shard End Ward Committee will take place on Monday 30 July, starting at 7pm, at Yardley & District Rugby Club, in Cole Hall Lane.
Items on the agenda include:
- An update from the local police
- The latest on the former Yardley Sewage Works site
- A report back on the work of the Midnight Bus
- The proposals for the Cole Valley walking & cycling route (see my previous blog post here for details
All Shard End Ward residents are welcome to attend. Come and find out more – and have your say!
