Leckhampton Community Updates

PCSO Julie Lewis writes -

There have been a number of dwelling and non-dwelling burglaries in the area and I urge all residents all residents to secure their homes when going out, gardening, moving to other parts of the house or retiring to bed. Currently 50% of all burglaries are through unlocked and open doors & windows.

I would like to remind all residents at this time not to leave any item on display in their cars.  Please do not leave anything on show, such as sat navs, mobile phones or loose change. A jacket or blanket in the car looks to you like a blanket, but to a thief looks like a cover for something far more valuable.

It is very important that residents continue to be vigilant. If you have any suspicions or see something or someone you consider to be suspicious, please do not hesitate to report it on the non-emergency no. 101, or if you believe something may be in progress call  999.

Street Surgeries

I have carried out numerous ‘targeted’ Surgeries which have been very successful. There has been good attendance from residents in those areas, who have been able to find out what has been going on in their road, share information with me which may have come to light, receive free crime reduction advice and literature. They are proving to be a very effective way of meeting the local community where the residents can share their views and concerns with me directly.

Neighbourhood Watch

I am very pleased to report that we are referring more and more people to our Neighbourhood Watch Field Officer who are interested in becoming Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators, with a good mixture of age groups wanting to become involved.

We have new schemes in the following roads

  • Leckhampton Road
  • Hall Road x 2 schemes
  • Highland Road

Safe at Home - a service for older and disable people across Gloucestershire

Safe at Home is the new county-wide Home Improvement Agency, to help vulnerable people to maintain their independence and continue living in their own homes. Gloucestershireshire County Council and its partners  have appointed local provider 'Mears' to deliver the service which will deliver home aids and adaptions, repairs and improvements, a handyperson service, (who can install new/additional locks and other home security measures), as well as give advice on funding and benefits that are available to people to help them stay at home.  If you are disabled, or over 60 and in receipt of means tested benefit, the service is usually free - if you are not, you can still use this service for a simple charge.
