Good Weather Security

The U.K. is welcoming some warm and sunny weather this week. As much as we all love to open the windows for some well needed fresh air, Staffordshire Police are advising people to be cautious when leaving their properties to make sure they are all left secure, including those upstairs windows to prevent any unwelcome visitors.

New Public Footpaths

Work has begun to put in place new public footpaths and bridleways in Sandyford. The City Council has agreed to better develop the public right of way network to link the Sandyford leg in line with the rest.

Work has already started at the Ridge Road entrance in Sandyford where the main working hub is to be situated. Residents and walking enthusiasts are reminded that this entrance is closed until the project is completed sometime in August.

Once completed the public right of way will link Sandyford with the rest of the city’s walkways, and will provide a better walking surface as well as taking in much loved views of Mow Cop Castle and the Church at Newchapel.

Police Sieze Quad Bike Ridden By a 2 Year Old

After calls regarding off road bikes on the Greenway near to Tunstall Park, police officers have seized a quad bike under 165 of The Road Traffic Act.

The bike was being ridden by a 2 year old and a 6 year old at the time. Appropriate agencies have also been informed and further enquiries are underway with local schools to identify other individuals involved in the incident.

If anyone has concerns regarding off road biking in the area then they are encouraged to telephone the police on 101 or crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Brown Bin Collections

Residents are reminded that brown bin collections start in the Sandyford & Goldenhill areas on Thursday 21st April.

Items which can go inside the brown bin are grass, garden plant waste, weeds, small branches, hedge cuttings, food waste, bones, tea bags & coffee grounds. Please note! no soil, compost or rubble to be placed inside the bin.

It is important to remember that bins must put out by 6.45 a.m. on the day of collection.

Antisocial Behaviour – Off Road Bikes

Staffordshire Police have warned since the weather hopefully improves we will no doubt see an increase in the use of off road motor bikes in the area.

From previous years the sooner we can start identifying the culprits and taking action the less of a problem we will have later in the year. If you see someone using them or know the property they come from this can be reported to the police on 101 or via Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
