PCSO Carl Barton Looks Back Over The Summer

The last six months in Woodford Halse has been very good in relation to crime. I am pleased to report a “crime free summer” marred by only one incident, minor damage to a motor vehicle. There have only been seven reported crimes this last six months.

There have been issues with parking in and around the village. Parking spaces are at a premium due to the amount of vehicles on the road. I regularly have to remind people to be mindful of where they park their vehicles and not to cause an obstruction. On one occasion I had to remove a vehicle for parking on the zig zags of a crossing and causing an obstruction.

I have held regular Police Surgeries in the library. The feedback I received were vehicles speeding in the village and people parking inconsiderately. I have conducted several speed checks to combat this.

Around 200 new homes are being built on the Byfield Road. There were concerns around heavy goods vehicles passing through the village. Highways have offered to provide HGV diversionary signs for placement by the Parish Council.

And lastly, the annual Regatta boat race was held on Friday 26th June. This is a very good event and for the second year running, the police took part. This year we had a  four man boat team with the police cadets running. They did very well in the circumstances. We hope to do better next year.
