Neighbourhood Wardens Update: August 2010

Wardens have recently dealt with several resident concerns which have included:

  • Several elderly residents suffering from anti-social behaviour from neighbours in Ashmore Park
  • A couple in the Perry Hall area suffering with problems caused by children from another area playing football; when spoken to the children were aggressive and abusive
  • Ongoing concerns about a family in the Wednesfield area causing anti-social behaviour and possible drug dealing
  • An elderly lady having problems with her neighbour’s dog
  • A resident in Long Knowle experiencing harassment from several neighbours
  • Problems with the garage site on Whiston Avenue; possible drug dealing and drug activity taking place

ACTIONS TAKEN

The wardens have taken various actions to resolve the above problems. They include:

  • Reassurance visits to homes of residents with concerns
  • Information gathering
  • Shared information with relevant partner agencies including police and anti-social behaviour unit
  • Provoked interest in setting up a neighbourhood watch group. Delivered the relevant information and contact details

INITIATIVES

  • Wardens have distributed bike safety locks to children at Corpus Christi school. The idea behind the initiative is to get children more active by cycling to school over a set period of time. In return they are rewarded with a new bike lock. The wardens are looking to introduce this idea to other schools in the Wednesfield area
  • Wardens are working closely with the Brownies at St.Gregory’s Church. In return for funding for their Brownie anniversary celebrations, the Brownies are to commit some of their time to a community project; the type of project, is yet to be decided
