Anti-Social Behaviour

Anti-social behaviour (ASB) is any aggressive, intimidating or destructive activity by an individual or a group that disrupts, damages or destroys someone else's quality of life. It includes criminal offences such as damaging property, graffiti, taking drugs in public, inconsiderate use of vehicles, drunken, rowdy or threatening behaviour. Surrey Police will again be working with its partners to tackle anti-social behaviour during the Halloween period. There will be additional patrols throughout Surrey to ensure that last year’s drop in anti-social behaviour over Halloween is maintained. Trouble is increasingly rare, but Surrey Police wants to make it clear to potential trouble makers that criminal offences will not be tolerated. You can download a ‘no trick or treat’ poster for display in your window (see below) they are also available from your local Safer Neighbourhood team.

If you or your children are planning to go out trick or treating, please keep in mind the following safety advice:

  • Always go with an adult or group of responsible friends and tell your parents where you are going
  • Never knock on a stranger’s door or go into a house
  • Respect the wishes of those people displaying a ‘no trick or treat’ sign
  • Stay in areas that are well lit and don’t go off on your own
  • Be visible especially if you are going near areas with busy roads
  • Do not vandalise property or throw items like egg or flour – this causes a lot of damage and upset and could be classed as a criminal offence
  • Remember your actions might frighten vulnerable people, particularly the elderly or those who live alone, so be considerate

If there is a problem or incident outside your house call Surrey Police on 101. In an emergency always dial 999. Have a safe and enjoyable Bonfire Night Please be reassured that Surrey Police will again be working with its partners on Bonfire Night to ensure that last year’s drop in anti-social behaviour is maintained. There will be additional patrols throughout Surrey to make it clear to potential trouble makers that criminal offences will not be tolerated.

Follow this advice to stay safe on Bonfire Night:

  • Keep fireworks in a closed box
  • Follow the instructions on each firework
  • Light at arm’s length using a taper
  • Stand well back
  • Once a firework has been lit NEVER go back even if it hasn't gone off it could still explode
  • Never put fireworks in your pocket or throw them
  • Light sparklers one at a time and wear gloves
  • Do not give sparklers to the under 5s
  • Keep pets indoors

Remember it is illegal to: Set off or throw fireworks in public - you face a fine of up to £5,000 and can be imprisoned for up to six months Possess fireworks in public if aged under 18 Set off fireworks after 11pm in the evening or midnight on November 5

From Surrey Police

Following an incident in Haslemere your local team wanted to pass on a message regarding the dangers of advertising parties on Facebook and Social Media.
In the lead up to Halloween and Bonfire Night it is very easy to arrange and advertise parties on Social media, this can lead to excessive numbers seeing these posts and turning up at the location that you haven't anticipated.
This can result in a great increase in Anti Social Behaviour, Police being called and even damage to property.

Please stay safe, and be mindful over the next few weeks.

Witness appeal after fatal collision on M3 near Sunbury

Surrey Police is appealing for witnesses after a young woman died following a collision and resulting car fire on the M3 motorway this evening.
The incident took place on the northbound carriageway between junctions 2 and 1 near Sunbury at around 11.18pm when a Vauxhall Zafira collided with a Toyota IQ2 which subsequently caught alight.
Emergency services attended the scene where the woman driver of the Toyota had suffered life threatening injuries. She was taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting where she sadly later died.
The driver and passenger in the Vauxhall, a man and a woman, suffered minor injuries in the collision and were taken to St Peter's Hospital in Chertsey.
The motorway was closed in both directions while emergency services dealt with the incident. The southbound carriageway has been fully reopened but the northbound carriageway remains shut at this time while an investigation is carried out.
Officers are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the collision or the events leading up to it to come forward. Anyone with information is asked to call the Surrey Police Collision Investigation Unit on 101 or 01483 639922 quoting reference p14293114.

Dog left with injuries after being struck with stick in Hambledon

Police are appealing for witnesses after a border collie was injured with a stick whilst out with his dog walker.
The incident occurred on a footpath in fields behind St Peter's Church Lane, Hambledon at around 2pm on Friday 19 September.
The dog walker was walking several dogs along the path when a male jogger approached carrying a stick. The border collie went up to the jogger and was struck with the stick causing an injury to his eye. The jogger then left the scene.
Officers are keen to identify the jogger and speak to anyone who was in the area at the time to understand the full circumstances of what happened.
The jogger is described as a white man, aged between 40 and 50-years-old, around 6ft tall and of a stocky build. He had greying hair described as being "salt and pepper” colouring and was wearing a white t-shirt and blue jogging trousers. He spoke with a local accent and it is believed he is left handed.
Investigating Officer PC Neil Winter said: "The dog suffered a nasty injury and I am urging anyone who may have seen the incident, recognises the man from the description or witnessed the events leading up to the offence to contact us as soon as possible.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference 45140079169 or by using the online reporting system found at http://www.surrey.police.uk/. Alternatively the independent charity Crime Stoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Attempt theft of cash point machine from village store in Elstead

A village store in Elstead was targeted by thieves this morning (Monday, 22 September) when an attempt to steal a cash point machine was made.
The incident happened when three men forced their way into The Spar store on The Green, Elstead at around 4.30am and attached straps to the stand alone cash facility. The suspects then connected the straps to a silver and maroon Mitsubishi Shogun and tried to get away with the machine. The straps snapped and the offenders, who all had their faces covered and wore gloves, made off in the vehicle.
As a result of the failed smash and grab, one of the doors at the store was ripped off its hinges.
Detectives in Waverley are appealing for anyone who may have seen the Mitsubishi in or around the vicinity of the offence. DC Mike Taylor investigating said: "This was an audacious attempt to steal a cash machine and I am hoping there may be someone who may have seen the suspects and the vehicle involved – maybe someone out on a milk round or a shift worker on their way home might have seen something which struck them as suspicious.
Please call Surrey Police with information.” Neighbourhood Inspector Tom Budd said: "This offence will come as a shock to the community and will mean that a much used facility is out of action causing hardship for customers and the shop itself. Residents can be assured that officers are doing everything possible to locate the offenders and bring them to justice.” A vehicle believed to be the one involved in the offence has since been recovered in the Hartley Witney area of Berkshire. Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference 45140079811 or by using the online reporting system found at http://www.surrey.police.uk/. Alternatively the independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.

I've written many pieces in our Parish magazine about our bells;
at St Mary's Chiddingfold John.

By now I hope you appreciate that we have a very special legacy in these bells, and I do hope that the village is a much better place for having them. (It would be a very sad thing to NOT have them surely!)

However, I, and the other bell ringers, are mindful that our ringing is intrusive, (loud).
Despite our best efforts, there are occasions when the music is not at it's best, particularly when practice and learners are involved! Whilst we have some sound-control, the sound of the bells does reach parts that other music does not!

So I am asking the village, and anyone else affected, to let me know your views - More
