Shed crime prevention advice given

Due to recent shed break-ins and attempted break-ins between the 19th May and 22nd May 2014, PCSO Mark Lifton and Neighbourhood Warden Phil Drew conducted high visible patrols.

They visited the victims' addresses located along the A38 at Moreton Valence and Whitminster.

During this time the victims were handed a free shed alarm and were then given crime prevention advice to prevent themselves from being repeat victims.

A letter drop was also completed in the surrounding area to highlight that sheds and outbuildings were being targeted. An attached document that was delivered out to the residents can be downloaded here.

PCSO Mark Lifton advised the importance of reporting suspicious vehicles or persons.
If you live in the Severnside area and would like a crime prevention survey completed at your property, please email him at Alternately, you can contact him on 101.

Parking Concerns at Whitminster Primary School

On Monday 6th January 2014 PCSO Mark Lifton attended Whitminster Primary School to assess parking after receiving complaints from local residents.

At the time of school starting and finishing Police were made aware that there were vehicles that were parked inconsiderately, causing issues for residents in Holbury Crescent. Police attended to assess and ensure that parking was done in a considerate and safe manner.

The school was also attended on Tuesday 7th January and all vehicles were noted as parking considerately.

During this time the Speedboard was also used outside the school, this helps to educate drivers by making them aware of the speed they are doing in the village.

We are happy to say no vehicles were noted as going over the 30MPH speed limit.

Police will be actively patrolling around the Severnside area to ensure all parking around the schools are done safely.

Message from PC 1886 Kelly Akers

Dear all,

I am sure most of you are aware, that I have been off on maternity leave for most of 2012 and that Pc Madia Shute has been covering the Severnside area.

I am writing to update you that Madia will now be permanently covering Slimbridge,Cambridge,Frampton on Severn, Fretherne, Arlingham, Saul, Whitminster and Epney.

I have been the Severnside Beat Manager since 2008 and I would like to say how much I have loved this role, I have met many wonderful people during this time and would like to personally thank all of you, for your help and support.

Following my period of leave, I now feel that the time is right to take on some new challenges, working in a different area.

Again many thanks and best wishes
