HGRA ran a survey on it’s Facebook page this past week asking whether residents like the idea of a neighbourhood watch scheme at Hunts Grove. The results are in and 97% of respondents think this is a good idea. Thanks to Gillian for coming up with the question.
That level of support is a good mandate for getting a scheme off the ground and HGRA will be looking at ways it can support the forming of a group for this.
Hunts Grove is an area with extremely low levels of crime thankfully and a scheme would help maintain that.
Anti-Social Behaviour & Vandalism
Having said there is an extremely low level of crime, it is acknowledged that there is an issue with a group of 7-10yr old youths causing damage to trees and the play parks in recent months. This weekend there was significant damage to properties under construction and nearby residents have been attempting to warn the youths of the dangers of breaking in to a construction site. The neighbourhood policing team have been brilliant in taking action (as can be seen from their feed below), plus working with the developers to assess their site security and the damage caused.
Did you see anything at the weekend? For this, and future reference, note that you can report via calling 101. If there is an emergency or crime in progress, always call 999.
