HVCID Newsletter 14 January 2022

Dear Residents

Welcome to 2022!!  We hope that it will be a year of good health, more calm and better safety and security in all its forms.

We have not yet started with our Community Policing Subforum and Tasking meetings where we look at crime statistics analysis in our Sectors, so I will update you next month on the crime figures.

Until then, please keep being the eyes and ears for our Community, as we continue to try and keep on top of Crime. 
Please keep going with your efforts to recycle and to help keep our neighbourhood clean and free of litter.

Just a note: Public manholes are being used as storage by people living on the street.  We appeal to residents and street groups to please report this.
