Issue 9 - Underage drinking...
John Midgley - Police Community Support Officer

Your regular column about combating crime in the neighbourhood written by John Midgley (pictured) and Paula Johnson.

John is one of several Police Community Support Officers patrolling our communities. You'll find their contact numbers and names by clicking here.

Hi everyone.

Your Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) is working with the local community to resolve issues in your area. We are continuing to develop our contacts within the community and to help build on our understanding of local problems.

We also continue to monitor reports of nuisance behaviour in Duffield, paying particular attention to underage drinking. We have already seized alcohol from Snake Lane Park and we will continue to patrol the recreational grounds to eradicate further concern, and if anyone is found to be drinking underage and causing a disturbance, they will be dealt with in the appropriate manner. Another problem on the rise is motorbikes (dirt bikes and scooters) in the Milford and Makeney area which are becoming a nuisance, revving engines and racing up and down roads - some without helmets on.

Kilburn and surrounding areas also are experiencing this problem with motorbikes and cars congregating on car parks in Kilburn and surrounding areas being a nuisance. This is of concern to the local Safer Neighbourhood Team. We are monitoring the situation and will do our utmost to tackle the situation. Anything you see relating to this in any area or any further incidents donít hesitate to ring on 0845 123 3333. Of particular concern are Woodhouse Road, Dale Park Avenue and Chapel Street in Kilburn and through Denby Village which we have been made aware of.

Action is being taken over this matter by the use of Speed Watch campaign. Speed Watch is aimed to tackle dangerous driving with the help of volunteer members of the community. The public will not be able to stop drivers, but those caught breaking the speed limit will be sent warning letters by the police. Your local PCSO would accompany the volunteers whilst out and about in the areas affected. We still need volunteers for Duffield, Milford, Kilburn and Denby, so if anyone is interested please get in contact with either of us on 0845 123 33 33.

Thanks and take care.

John and Paula

What you've been saying about All Things Local...

“ I just wanted to say how interesting and useful the magazine is to us both. We have so far used one of the recipe's, eaten at one of the restaurants and contacted some of the local traders. I am particularly keen to support local businesses and this is a way of getting their contact details. Thanks for such a well produced and useful LOCAL magazine“
