Antisocial Behaviour Brings a Community Together

Monday 12th December 2011 is a day when residents of the Ridge Road Estate in Sandyford will remember for a long time because this is the day when its inhabitants celebrated its own success against fighting antisocial behaviour.

Residents won their battle against recent antisocial behaviour when four asbo’s were given out to local youths who had terrorised local people for a long time.

The “Respect Day” which brought Stoke on Trent City Council, Staffordshire Police & Fire Service, Councillor Martin Garner and the Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association together as proved a success for all to see.

The authorities lead by the Safer Cities Partnership and Staffordshire Police believe that local residents needed a show of support from all agencies by giving them a “Respect Day” that would improve their own environment.

The day gave residents a cleaner area by providing free skips, having litter picks and supplying new waste bins, community pay back cutting back overgrown vegetation, Staffordshire Fire Service offering free home safety checks, including checking water pressure levels, Staffordshire Police providing support and advice from the police van sited on McDonald’s, S.A.G.E. posting leaflets throughout the area informing residents of the benefits of active walking “Closer to Home, Walk 2 Fitness” as well as with Councillor Garner giving added support to the victims who have suffered from antisocial behaviour.
