Cheswick Green Residents Association is considering running an day trip to Crowngate Ladies Day at Worcester Racecourse on Saturday 2nd June 2018 and although it’s ladies Day it is of course not just aimed at the ladies. This is Worcester Races most popular fixture of the year with an anticipated crowd of 10,500 people. Pickup would be by Johnsons Coach from Cheswick Green and include entry to the racecourse. We need to get an idea of how many residents would be interested in this? Further information on this event can be found here https://www.worcester-racecourse.co.uk/whats-on/crowngate-ladies-day-2018
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would be interested in this.
The erratic nature of the S2 bus service has been reported to West Midlands Mayor, Andy Street. We are assured that the situation is being monitored by Transport for the West Midlands (formerly Centro). It would help if all missing buses are reported to email@example.com
In addition, Councillor Ken Hawkins has agreed to collect information or complaints and ensure they are forwarded to TFWM.
For many years the Residents Association produced quarterly magazines which before websites and social media where about the only way to inform people what was happening in and around the village. Here are a few from the archives in Adobe PDF format. http://www.cgra.org.uk/cgra-magazines-past/
Think about using light timers if returning home after dark. Most burglaries committed locally are during daytime/early evening hours.
Please make sure that your presents are not on show for opportunist thieves to see.
Check that your doors are locked even when you are home.
Do what you can to make sure your house doesn’t look empty. Why not ask a trusted neighbour to park on your empty drive as well as leaving a light/radio on.
Ask a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your home if you are going away for a few days. Removing any post on view, putting wheelie bins in and out for you and drawing curtains in the evening.
Be careful what you share on social media. Update your friends and family about what you have been up to once you are home.
Talk to any elderly or vulnerable neighbours and family members about door step crime.
See something suspicious report it to the Police on 101. We have had some great arrests in recent weeks. Calls in from the public have resulted in arrests being made for robbery, burglary and vehicle crime.
When you are out take extra care with your personal belongings. Crowded places attract thieves. Keep your mobile devices out of sight and purses and wallets safe.
