Croftlands Community Safety Group news

A monthly drop in for a "coffee and chat" will be held at the Croftlands Community centre every 2nd Friday in the month 11.30-12.30pm. Community Police Officer John Turner will be there as well as members of the Croftlands Community Safety Group. If you have any policing issues this is a good opportunity to chat with John. Everyone welcome.
The Multi use games area (MUGA) and an adventure play area is to be built on the Croftlands playing fields.
Work is now complete on building the MUGA and already it is proving very popular with many youngsters and sometimes several footballs at a time can be seen in play. We still await a litter bin to be installed.
The Adventure playground is soon to be built on the green next to the MUGA.
The Winter 2010/11 newsletter is available - copies are available in the Spar shop, Post office/newsagents and hairdressers (all Croftlands).
With the help of Trading Standards we hope that into the New Year parts of Croftlands will become a "NO COLD CALLING" zone which will help protect residents in those areas from bogus callers or doorstep salesmen who often use high pressure tactics as well as charging high prices for shoddy work.
The Croftlands Community Safety Group (a kind of neighbourhood watch) was formed in 2007 by a few local residents to try and address some of the problems occuring at the time. We meet very informally to discuss any worries such as safety, security, anti-social behaviour, including drink and drugs, cold callers or any other issues. We share ideas and by liaising with our Community Police Officer John Turner, local Councillors and others we hope to find solutions.
The Police cannot always know what is going on in a particular area, but we the local community can be the eyes and ears to know what is happening on our street and by the community and the police working together we can help to keep crime off our streets.
The Ulverston Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) meet the first Wednesday of every month in the Ulverston library between 7-8pm to discuss any policing issues you may have and to report any crime in the area. All residents are welcome to attend these informal meetings so if you have any worries don't suffer in silence. If you are unable to get to these meetings you can contact the local Police by phoning 0845 33 00 247.
Inspector Kevin Spedding.
Sgt. Stuart Flett or Sgt. Rupert Johnston
If you would like to come along to any of our informal meetings held in the Croftlands Community Centre, then please get in touch .
