Break-in alert

A leaseholder neighbour from Piggott House had his door kicked in at 18:15 yesterday evening, he says somebody had gone through his belongings but nothing was apparently taken.

Neighbours heard a noise but thought nothing of it.

It is difficult to hear where a noise comes from and finding out what it is. On estates noises are hard to source; and with building work going on in many places it is hardly possible to call emergency services for every aggressive noise one hears.

Whilst I do not want to advocate the view that it is the dwellers fault that their doors kicks in easily and they make it easy for the burglars, I would still recommend that residents install a multi-bolt secure door.

Whilst I do not want to advertise any particular manufacturer, a Google search results in many suitable doors being available.

Perhaps if any readers have seen anything yesterday and retrospectively remember any useful information please inform your local Safer Neighbourhoods Officer or ring 101 or crime stoppers help out anonymously as well on the number 0800 555 111.

Neighbourhood Watch registration

Dear Residents.

Neighbourhood Watch on the estate is being re-organised into at least 3 watches because each area of the estate has got their own unique problems.

We’ll have a Rosebery House Watch, Sidney House watch and others.

It is essential for the purpose of good communications that all interested register with the new OWL website.

It would also be welcome if residents could pre-register and leave their essential contact information so that can be passed on to the local unit and help avoid extra work for them as you know officers are in short supply these days. Please note that no copy of your submission will be kept by Parkview Residents, only your local Safer Neighbourhood Team will get the information supplied.

So please fill in this following form and all fields are required please.

Local heroes

I just wondered whether residents would want to have the succees stories of themselves, their children or residents they know published here on this website.

My granddaughter Madison was mentionedĀ in the East End Life and also the East London Advertiser for the medals she won at swimming competitions. Recently Madison also won a Jack Petchey award.

Madison trainsĀ at the LACPP with Olympians and national and student medal winners and soon will go to the home swimming club of Adam Peaty and take part in a swimming camp, run by Adam Peaty’s award winning swimming coach Mel Marshall.

Are there any kids on the estate who take part in sports or have achieved remarkable personal goals? Any residents who want to share any stories?

Please let me know, will gladly publish photos and stories.

Neighbourhood Watch

The Metropolitan Police website currently undergoes a major modernisation and changes mean that at the moment, the usual feeds, which show SNT meetings for our area do not work.

A further change also is that Tower Hamlets Neighbourhood Watch now mainly uses the OWL website for inter-watch communications.
