Community Safety Day for Older People - Wednesday, 16 March

A free NHS health check will be part of this year’s ‘bigger and better’ Community Safety Day for Older People at the Europa Gallery, Sutton Central Library, Wednesday, 16 March 10:30 - 2:30. More than 30 organisations will be taking part to help the borough’s elderly and vulnerable residents be aware of the range of services that are available to support them and to help keep them safe. The Community Safety Day is free to all residents and participating organisations. It is being organised by the Safer Sutton Partnership Service, which manages the borough community safety services, and Sutton Neighbourhood Watch and the Borough’s Libraries, Heritage & Arts Services. The Mayor of Sutton – Councillor Muhammad Sadiq – is due to attend at 11:00am when he will tour of all the information stands which include the Met Police, London Fire Brigade, Age UK and many others. The free health checks are being provided by LiveWell Sutton and Merton and are available to anyone aged 40-74 who lives or has a GP in the borough of Sutton and hasn’t had a health check in the past five years.

Last year’s Community Safety Day for Older People attracted more than 1,000 visitors.

Keep your home secure

Be vigilant

Many of us know our streets and the time our neighbours’ depart and return from work and therefore when their property is likely to be empty or occupied. Call us on 999 immediately if you:

- see anyone you don’t recognise acting suspiciously near your own or your neighbours’ properties

- hear an unexpected loud bang or series of bangs or smashing glass from next door when you know the occupiers are away

Protect your home

- use timers on lights when it gets dark and change the rooms and times to avoid predictability. This will make you look like you are in when you are out. Burglars are far more likely to target a property if they believe the occupiers are out

- leave your front door and vehicle keys in a secure place out of sight and reach of your front door to prevent a potential burglar ‘fishing’ for the key through the letterbox

- use your key to lock your multi-point UPVC door otherwise it won’t be locked

- keep doors and windows shut and locked

- if you are going on holiday, ask a trusted neighbour to watch your home.

Suffering domestic abuse?

If you are suffering from domestic abuse and need help and support, the Safer Sutton Partnership Service co-ordinates the Domestic Violence One Stop Shop at Sutton Baptist Church, 21 Cheam Road, Sutton, SM1 1SN, Wednesdays, 9:30-11:30am. Since its launch four years ago, it has proved a lifeline to more than 1,000 victims of domestic abuse. Any victim of domestic abuse can attend this free drop-in service, where they will receive advice and support from an Independent Domestic Violence Advisor, specially trained police officer, solicitor, and other professionals. Victims can also call Victim Support for advice on: 020 7801 1777 (9:00am - 5:00pm Mon-Fri)

Don’t tolerate Hate Crime, Report it. Stop it.

Hate crime can be reported direct to Police if you feel comfortable doing so by dialling 101 for non-emergencies and 999 for emergencies. Alternatively, you can contact Stop Hate on their 24-hour helpline: 0800 138 1625. Stop Hate UK is a registered charity that provides independent and confidential support. Visit: www.stophateuk.org

Beddington North Ward - Update from Beddington North Safer Neighbourhood Team

NewsPosted by Beddington North Tue, February 09, 2016 14:19:09

Beddington North Ward - Update from Beddington North Safer Neighbourhood Team

Dear Ward Member,

- Police are investigating a report that an 11-year-old girl in school uniform on her way home from school was grabbed by her arm and turned around on the path between Guy Road and Meller Close, Wallington, on Tuesday, 19 January at around 15:45hrs. Initially, police treated this incident as an attempted abduction. However, after an initial investigation, there is no evidence to support this, nor that the assault was in any way sexually motivated. Whilst detectives are maintaining an open mind, this assault is being treated as an isolated incident and is not connected to the assaults on adult females in Carshalton between 7-9 January. The suspect is described as an Asian man, aged 30-40 and 5ft 10in tall. He was wearing dark clothing. Anyone with any information should contact Sutton Police station on 101. Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. Police are keen for parents to remind their children about the importance of saying ‘no’ to strangers. Our crime prevention advice to children is to shout ‘no’ or ‘help’ and to move as quickly as possible to a place of safety such as their school or to someone they know and can trust. In an emergency call police on 999 immediately

- gold jewellery was stolen in a residential burglary in Croydon Road on Thursday, 21 January between 15:00-22:30hrs after entry was gained via a rear patio door. The escape was made by forcing a front window

- two people were approached by a suspect who threatened them in Mallinson Road on Saturday, 23 January at around 16:45hrs

- items were stolen from an unlocked vehicle in Wandle Road on Sunday, 24 January at around 01:00hrs

Traffic collisions

- police were called to a road traffic collision in Beddington Farm Road involving two vehicles on Tuesday, 19 January at 06:00hrs. A male involved in the collision is believed to have suffered fractures to both legs

- police were called to a road traffic collision in The Broadway, Croydon (opposite the Costcutter store) on Wednesday, 20 January at 13:50hrs

Arrests

- a number of males were arrested after they ran off from police officers responding to a call about cannabis being smoked in Brabazon Avenue between 19-20 January. They were detained and found to be in possession of a stolen Sat Nav. Enquiries continue

Neighbourhood Planning

NewsPosted by Beddington North Sun, December 27, 2015 17:24:23

Neighbourhood Planning

The third draft of the Neighbourhood Plan is now available.

The Beddington North Neighbourhood Forum is working with the London Borough of Sutton to produce a neighbourhood plan for the Beddington Neighbourhood Area.

A Neighbourhood Plan allows communities to develop planning policies for their area and, when adopted, would become part of the local Development Framework for the Borough and used in the determination of planning applications.
