The following Report was prepared by Sandra Kyriakides, WPAG Project Manager and former Welwyn Hatfield Borough Councillor.
The meeting held at Welwyn Civic Centre on Wednesday 8th March provided the impressive number of local residents and businesses who attended the opportunity to express their concerns to members of the Police, Fire Service and Borough Council officers.
The issues raised were primarily those of public safety and the wish for more visual police presence in the area, particularly at times when incidents are more prevalent. The concerns were duly noted and taken on board.
There has been a slight increase of police car patrols through the village and there would appear to have been a corresponding decrease in the kind of anti-social behaviour that was taking place.
Please be aware of anything untoward and be sure to report it immediately to 101. As I said last time, we need to keep the police aware of any concerns in the village and, “if it isn’t reported, it didn’t happen” so be sure to pick up the phone!
