Anti-social behaviour reporting

Dear residents,

If you witness any anti-social behaviour in the village, please make sure you report the event to the Police (999), the day you have seen/experienced it happening. This is really important – else a lack of reporting puts the Village as low priority on the Police radar, which means less oversight from them for our village.

Interested in playing Tennis?

Dear residents,

If you are enthusiastic about tennis, and interested in making use of the current tennis courts in the Village, found along Egremont Road, please inform the Parish Council of your interest asap.

Should there be enough interests in forming such a group, the Parish Council will then look into resurrecting the facilities for playing tennis.

Please also get in touch if you are interested in being a volunteer for helping out with the above.

Village Play Areas and Skate Park

Updated 13/5/2020

Following guidance from the Government the Tennis Court/MUGA on Egremont Road is open for sports use subject to following the conditions publised on the gate.

Breaches of the conditions may result in the area being closed again.

The public open spaces are open for excercise and recreation in line with Government guidelines. The Parish Council requires everyone using the open spaces to observe the goverment guidance on social distancing (.gov website).

Unfortunately, due to Government order, all of the play areas and the skate park are still closed until further notice to minimise the spread of coronavirus. As soon as we receive guidance from the Government about opening these facilities it will be reviewed.

If you or anyone in your household are displaying symptoms of coronavirus  you must follow the guidance on self-isolating and not use the public open spaces.

Fly-tipping

Fly-tipping is the illegal disposal of waste. It can be anything from a bag of waste to a truckload. We have all seen abandoned items in the countryside, villages and towns. But leaving items by Household Recycling Centres, charity shops or by bins are all fly-tipping too. Around two thirds of fly-tips come from households, so it is crucially important that everyone understands their Duty of Care to avoid £400 fixed penalty notice or an unlimited fine.

Together with other partners in the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Waste Partnership (RECAP), SCDC
have launched the S.C.R.A.P Fly-tipping campaign to help residents understand their responsibilities. Everyone should follow the S.C.R.A.P. code below to make the right choices when asking someone to remove unwanted items.

To help us deal with fly-tipping incidents efficiently, please report them to SCDC. Here’s how:

Online: www.scambs.gov.uk/environment/envirocrime
By phone: 03450 450 063

If you witness fly-tipping, call 999 to report a crime in action. Please do not put yourself in harm’s way.

When reporting fly-tipping, please note as many details as possible
• The exact location
• The size of the fly-tip
• The type of waste dumped
• The date and time you spotted or witnessed the fly-tip
• Photos of the fly-tip and fly-tippers if you have witnessed it
• The vehicle registration number and details
• The description of people involved
• The direction they were travelling

SCDC recently staged a mock fly-tip to raise awareness of the issue. You can watch their video and read their news release about this topic here.
