For those of you with young children who may be visiting Cheam Park, (or others in the area), please note that some stupid person had attached tape and nails deliberately to a climbing apparatus in the play area there. At least one child was injured.
Please continue to enjoy these spaces but just be aware.
This is the text of an update sent by Councillor Elliot Colburn (Cheam) that he received from Paul Scully MP. Myself, Holly and Eric will continue to support him and press these points to the Council. In the meantime, I have also heard from the Cheam SNT who have advised they are assessing the situation and are working up a patrol rota. They have said that if you are witnessing a crime or are in imminent danger then obviously call 999, or 101 or online in less urgent circumstances.
They have a CAD reference of 6127, in which all crime related to this incursion will be logged and investigated against.
Just a heads up for readers in case you are not yet aware, but the “travellers” group that had wreaked havoc in Fairlands Park up in North Cheam last week, have now invaded Cheam Park and are sited on the Recreation Area.
As usual, authorities are playing “catch up” in terms of legal enforcement and it is hoped that they will depart later in the week. We will keep you updated.
Some Community news for our readers – there is a Community Safety Day for Older People on Thursday 2nd August 2018.
