A splash of colour

Just wanted to take the opportunity to thank those who volunteered to plant bulbs last year and show how nice the area around the football pitch near Rosebery House looks with those tulips blooming.

Ward Panel AGM 2018

I attended the Bethnal Green Ward Panel last night and had no major problems to report that I am aware of.

We have been handed a sheet with statistics of reported crime since April 2017 and within the 9 Major classes

there were few rises within the last 12 months:

  • Burglary rise from 17 to 28
  • Other offences rise from 6 to 10
  • Robbery rise from 5 to 6
  • Sexual offences rise from 1 to 7

Other categories saw big falls:

  • Criminal damage down from 17 to 11
  • Drugs* down from 7 to 5
  • Theft and handling down from 87 to 56
  • Violence against the person down from 73 to 56

*It is likely that the real drugs figure is significantly higher, due to a lack of reporting of those offences.

It is extremely important for all residents to report all incidences of any criminal activity to the local Police. Intelligence reports including:

  • Date
  • Time
  • Place
  • car number plates
  • person description
  • activity description

should be made by

  • phone, 101 or your local SNT officer or Crime stoppers 0800 555 111
  • email BethnalGreen.snt@met.police.uk
  • online on the MET website¬†or using the SNT contact online.
  • All ongoing crime needs to be reported via 999.

In non urgent cases police resources are allocated according to the number of complaints received, so if you complain we are likely to get more resources to solve our problems.

May I take this opportunity to invite residents to put themselves on the MET mailing list and/or register with OWL the local information system, that keeps you up-dated with all local activities.

Please don’t attract vermin to the estate.

Meat laid out on the Footpath at Rosebery House

This morning, at around 6:15, I found a lot of raw meat, lined up on the footpath, near the football pitch, at the beginning of Rosebery House.

It seems this meat was laid out on purpose there, and if not and somebody lost it out of a bag on the way to the bins, can I please ask you to pick it up and bin it.

I picked up this meat and binned it this morning.

Food like this attracts rats and other vermin, it is not useful for our environment to leave meat around like this.
