The male is described as white, 5ft 8 tall, medium build, he was wearing a grey t-shirt with black jogging bottoms. He had short brown hair with tattoo's on his right arm. The male was carrying a large holdall on his back.

 

Please make sure you lock your vehicle's and items left in the vehicle are hidden away. If you see this male acting suspiciously around houses or vehicles please call 999 immediately

Parks maintenance
21/02/2019 11:27:00.......Posted by Margaret Bird

22 days after Croydon Council's Labour administration brought the grounds, maintenance contract back inhouse, they claimed so they could manage it better....  staff do not have access to the tools to enable them to do their job they have to borrow. A complete mismanagement of taxpayer finances yet again by the administration.

Parking survey
16/02/2019 17:16:00.......Posted by Margaret Bird

Today along with Cllr Steve Hollands we delivered a parking survey to residents in Canon's Hill,Deans Walk,Bishops Close,St Johns Hill, Court Ave,Tudor Close and Tudor Parade. This  followed the public meeting we held in November after residents and shopkeepers raised concerns  that the parking in the area had been affected by the changes to the parking allowed in the Tudor Rose PH car park. 

We have suggested changes following meeting with Croydon Council and now residents can have their say. Forms should be returned to Cllr Margaret Bird  as per the form. Please contact me if you have any concerns

 


 

Update on Marlpit Lane

Good advice from Old Coulsdon Safer Neighbourhood team
12/01/2019 16:39:00.......Posted by Margaret Bird

Dear Ward Member,As your local police team we are dedicated to working to resolve any policing issues that may be present in your area.Cold calling is something that happens on a daily basis.The caller often pretend to be from legitimate, well-known companies like banks, utilities or the police.

If in doubt simply hang up! Never provide any personal or confidential details such as bank account or credit card details.If you answer an unsolicited telephone call and think that it is a scam then our advice is to:

Obtain the caller’s name

Obtain the company name

Obtain a telephone number

Report the incident to Action Fraud using the online reporting tool at www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud or call 0300 123 2040

Action Fraud is the UK’s fraud and internet crime reporting centre. For advice visit www.actionfraud.police.uk

If an appointment has been made for someone to attend your house then call police on either 999 if it is a police emergency and happening now, or on 101 if it is not an emergency.

Sign up to the Telephone Preference Service (www.tpsonline.org.uk or 0845 0700707) and the Mail Preference Service (www.mpsonline.org.uk) to minimise unsolicited calls and mail.

Old Coulsdon Centre for Retired on the road
11/01/2019 19:05:00.......Posted by Margaret Bird

the 

 

Today Cllr Margaret Bird attended the AGM of Old Coulsdon Centre for the Retired . This wonderful facility for those at the upper end of age is open Mon - Fri and led by the centre manager Iris who is definitely very appreciated by those accessing the centre given the comments made to me today. The centre receives a small grant from Croydon Council which is nowhere near the amount needed to run the centre so they are dependent very much on donations especially to keep the mini bus on the road as it is a lifeline for most of the attendees to be able to get to the centre.

Old Coulsdon Centre for the Retired
11/01/2019 16:41:00.......Posted by Margaret Bird

The Centre for the Retired  held their AGM today  and was attended by many of those that use the centre regularly and are lucky enough, in many cases to be collected and returned home by the volunteers who man the mini bus thus preventing social isolation that so often happens with the older generation.  

I was lucky enough to be  invitedand was able to talk to the users who all enthused about the centre.

The Centre Manager is Iris,  with the building , finances and mini bus managed by a group of dedicated volunteers and is primarily a drop in and not a lunch club although everyone can get a bite to eat while they are there and there are often parties with more substantial offerings and outings arranged.

Well worth a visit. Volunteers are always wanted!
