Crime on Parkview

It was brought to our attention via NextDoor that on the Parkview Estate, there is a high rate of car break-ins. This morning, one of our coordinators went around the estate and indeed found one car windscreen smashed. We will post pics of all problems we found here, anonymised of course.

A picture was taken and the matter was reported to police and CAD 1183/31Mar22 was allocated.

We can offer residents a specific ASB / crime WhatsApp group to let us know immediately when they have become aware of a problem. We can only deal with what we know and then also raise the matter at the SNT Ward Panel. Please let us know if you wish to become a Neighbourhood Watch member and part of a Parkview WhatsApp group. Register for Neighbourhood Watch here and join the Parkview Neighbourhood Watch group. You can then ask to join a WhatsApp group Parkview specific.

car found vandalised on 31. March 2022, we will make daily rounds and add victim’s cars as they occur.

Protect your car against criminals break-ins by not leaving any valuables or tech items in plain sight. Also you are advised to use a security attachment for blue badges. car crime prevention advice here

Spring’s already on Parkview

Just coming back from the Globe Town market, where we can buy fresh produce and household goods from our excellent local shops and market stalls and I can see the most beautiful spring flowers blooming on our estate. Thanks to all the volunteers who planted the bulbs, that now delight us. Also a variety of shrubs bloom at different times of year.

Expect delays with waste collections

Tower Hamlets waste services are facing delays with bin collections today due to staff shortages and congestion on the roads caused by the tube strike. TH crews will be working extra shifts this week and over the weekend to clear any backlog. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

You can help by trying to keep your waste to a minimum, securely bagging rubbish and folding bulky items like cardboard boxes so more can fit in the recycling bins 💚
