Work in thecommunity
Following relaxing of lockdown rules, I have been out and about in the community more than ever which was to be expected given the restrictions placed on all of us over the past two years. I have been working with community groups and individual residents across the ward including Holts, Alt, Hathershaw and the Abbeyhills Road area.
I’ve continued to work with the Hathershaw Community Group to improve the area we continue to meet regularly with residents, the council and police all coming together to tackle issues collectively. Whilst challenges remain, we have seen significant improvements in the area and are confident that the ongoing efforts will continue to improve the area moving forwards.
Following a spate of burglaries and attempts around the Warren Lane area I met with residents after which I arranged an online meeting with residents and the police. A close community group has been setup working together to improve the safety of the area. I followed this up with a door knocking session accompanied by two PCSOs we spoke to a number of residents and distributed packs which included information to keep properties and vehicles safe as well as a light timer and window alarms.
I have been working with residents in Holts following complaints of bicycles and scooters creating a risk to pedestrians. Myself and ward colleagues contributed towards two new baffle rails to restrict the speed of cyclists and encourage them to dismount and others using the area.
I have supported numerous residents with housing and other issues on Alt, we continue to support Alt Together including working with residents to clean up the area. Following reports of fly-tipping on Holts Lane we are working with council officers to address this.
I am involved in initiatives and support lots of residents, too many to put in a single report I encourage Alexandra Ward residents to get in touch should they wish to raise any issues or discuss anything of interest.
Look after yourselves and each other!
