Crime update We have been advised that Anti-Social Behaviour Orders have seen a 50% reduction over a year by year comparison which is positive feedback for our area. Our PCSO team continue to monitor local complaints and concerns on youths congregating in certain areas as well as crime events on the local BP garage premises and the overall Sixfields sites. A few youths have received a ban attending Sixfields at the weekend due to ASBO’s enforced.

Christmas carols Thank you to all who donated during the December Christmas carols. £200 was raised and will be split, £100 to DMPAC & Hope Centre

Changes to newsletter distribution Thank you to all residents who have requested for the news letter to be distributed by email. These will start to be emailed very soon but its not too late to be included. If you would like to be a part of this exciting change please email your details to aaron.preston@uptongrange.org. Please include your house number and street name. Thank you.

Parking on Upton Grange Please be considerate when parking on our estate. We have received complaints to the local PCSO team regarding pavement parking (which prevents a pushchair safely manoeuvred around) and also on double yellow lines. The PCSO team are monitoring continual parking offences and may take action if necessary. Please remind your visitors of parking arrangements and restrictions in our area to prevent unnecessary inconvenience to your neighbours. If you would like to discuss parking regulations further please speak to the local police service on 08453 700 700 Thank you.
