Welcome to your East Putney Ward Safer Neighbourhoods Team newsletter
The East Putney Ward Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) consists of:
We are here specifically to address local, non-emergency issues that affect your quality of life. We are tasked with patrolling your ward, getting to know the people who live and work here and listening to the issues that are important to you. Please stop and speak to us if you see us walking around or contact the team on the number or email address below. To report a crime please attend Jubilee House on Putney High Street next to the Odeon Cinema. Our office hours are Monday to Friday 1100–1400 and Saturday 1000–1400. Outside of these hours please attend Wandsworth Police Station on West Hill.
Our next ward meeting will be held on Tuesday 11th November 2008 at 7pm. It will be at Putney High School, Putney Hill. This is an open invitation for everyone to come along. It is a chance for you to meet your local Safer Neighbourhood Team, voice your concerns and find out what your local SNT have done since our last meeting. We hope to see as many of you there as possible.
Putney High School World Record
On Tuesday 29th April 2008 pupils at Putney High School attempted to break the World Record for the number of participants in a game of "Musical Statues". East Putney Safer Neighbourhoods Team were there to adjudicate along with Justine Greening, MP for Putney, Roehampton and Southfields. The special event was organised by Deputy Head Girl Flo Ware to promote an active healthy lifestyle.
St Michael’s C of E Primary School
On Saturday 7th June 2008 St Michaels C.E. Primary School held their Summer Fete in the playing fields on Viewfield Road SW18. The fete offered a variety of events including a fancy dress competition, sack races, water balloon games and tug 'o' war for the children. In addition there was a coconut shy, bouncy castle, bouncy slides, a set of stocks where the person in the stock had water soaked sponges thrown at them, a variety of stalls selling everything from food to clothing and a raffle.
A highly successful day for the school and one that the East Putney SNT thoroughly enjoyed being a part of.
Street Meeting Update
On Saturday 12th April 2008 East Putney Safer Neighbourhoods Team held three very successful street meetings dedicated to motor vehicle crime prevention. They were held at three different locations across the entire ward in order to provide all residents the opportunity to speak to our team. At each meeting we distributed laminated vehicle crime prevention cards stating "Nothing of value has been left in this vehicle" and other associated literature. The card also gives valuable advice in the form of an easy to read checklist on the rear of the card.
The street meetings were held at St Johns Avenue, Rusholme Road and West Hill Road throughout the day and many residents came out to discuss their concerns. As well as the laminated card we provided a motor vehicle crime prevention pack containing an 'Immobilise.com' leaflet (free internet service to record personal items of value), a UV property marking pen and general crime prevention advice.
Neighbourhood Watch Re-Launch
On Wednesday 28th May, members of East Putney SNT in conjunction with Wandsworth Council re-launched the neighbourhood watch for Gwendolen Avenue. The meeting was held at St Simon’s Church at 7.30pm and was attended by 10 residents. Charles McGinley was named as the neighbourhood watch co-ordinator for the area.
