Youths Kicking Peoples Front Doors

Staffordshire Police want to make parents aware that a group of youths in the Fegg Hayes area are kicking at peoples front doors for fun. Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association would also like to report that this antisocial activity has recently been happening in the Sandyford area as well.

Some people being targeted are elderly, some have young children and others have dogs that are being stressed by the noise.

Please be aware of your child’s whereabouts, what seems like fun to them could become criminal damage.

The police will be working with the community in either of the areas to stop this behaviour and identify the offenders, no one wants a child to have a criminal record before leaving school.

Listen to the new knife crime podcast & also details on your nearest knife crime amnesty bank

Staffordshire Police say that you may have seen increased local coverage on the topic of knives over the past week as we’re currently working with partners to promote the Ditch the Blade campaign.

To reassure you, 99% of young people aged 10 to 29 don’t carry a knife, so it’s not a common thing.

However, we know that some young people may feel pressured to carry, or may carry due to fear, so we’re encouraging everyone to have a conversation with the young people in their lives to make them aware of the potential risks and consequences, so they can make an informed decision to Ditch the Blade.

The following may be of help for your conversations, so I wanted to share this information with you.

Knife banks for the anonymous disposal of knives

Since the last campaign, we now have more knife bank locations across Staffordshire enabling the anonymous disposal of knives. You can check where your nearest location is by viewing the map on our website:

You can also take a knife to your nearest Household Waste Recycling Centre (Tip) for disposal if you do not have a knife amnesty bank nearby.

If you’re dropping off a knife at a knife bank, or a recycling centre, please make sure it’s suitably wrapped and secure for your journey.

New Ditch the Blade podcast 

To help communities understand the local situation when it comes to knives, we’re sharing the views of three different organisations through a new podcast about knife crime. The conversation features representatives from:

·         Staffordshire Police Violence Reduction Team

·         Catch 22

·         Stoke on Trent Youth Offending Service.

The podcast explores the educational and operational work happening in partnership across the county to tackle knife crime, looking at who is most likely to carry a knife, why they may choose to do this, common signs to spot and what we’re doing as a partnership to tackle this important issue.

You can listen now by following this link:

Is Sandyford Cricket Club on the Move

Residents have been contacting Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association with their concerns that Sandyford Cricket Club is on the move to the former Goldenhill Golf Course. The reasons for this are due to rumours the cricket ground is earmarked for redevelopment.

The resident’s association has been in contact with the land owner who owns the cricket club, and they have confirmed there are no proposals to redevelop the site.

The land owner also stated that you can’t build on e.g., playing fields which are in use, and that applies to Sandyford Cricket Club.

Could your organisation become a welcoming space this winter

Local businesses, community and faith organisations are being encouraged to step forward to offer ‘welcoming spaces’ to support local people during the winter months and rising cost of living.

A welcoming space is a place of connection in the community, such as a community centre, library, or place of faith, where people can meet, socialise, and potentially access support relating to the cost of living.

Last year over 50 welcoming spaces were established across Stoke-on-Trent. Services available at each welcoming space will vary but may include:

  • Access to support about money, welfare, and mental wellbeing
  • Community activities
  • Access to computers, free Wi-Fi, and charging points
  • A heated space

Organisations that become a welcoming space will be informed of the support available so that they can help the local people who attend their welcoming space. They will also be given ongoing support and guidance.

To sign up to become a warm and welcoming place, organisations are asked to fill in a short form at

They will then be added to the full list of welcoming spaces across the city which can be found at the VAST website:

This comes as the ‘Help is at Hand’ campaign was launched last month to support residents across the city through the cost of living crisis and winter months, with the support of public services, community and voluntary sector groups. For residents who may be struggling, has helpful advice and support links.

If you have any questions about becoming a welcoming space, please don’t hesitate to contact the council’s Community Development Team by emailing or calling 01782 233265.
