Join us for a Lakes clean up

Keep Earlswood Lakes looking their best.

We are looking for more volunteers to join our group. In order to keep the Lakes clean and tidy, a loyal band of volunteers
remove the rubbish that is left behind by users of the lakes.  See the photos of our last clean below:


We need more people to come forward.  Now, it’s not always fun as we go out in all weathers but sometimes it is beautiful
weather and there is a lot of satisfaction to be gained from doing this worthwhile task.

It’s a friendly group and we need to expand. If you live nearby, or visit the Lakes regularly, you might consider getting in touch.

The Canal and River Trust supports us, provide equipment and insurance cover.

It’s a great opportunity for families to get out together and young people do enjoy themselves.

We start at 10.00am on certain Sunday mornings, usually doing around 2 hours.  We meet in Malthouse Lane car park.

Our next clean up is on Sunday 7th May 2017.

Give it a go, just turn up if you like but even better, contact Jenny on 01564703695 or

You will then be contacted before each date and also contacted should it be cancelled for any reason.

Good for your health, spirits and that halo!  Sunday lunch will taste even better after a session cleaning up.

Best wishes,

Jenny B.

Car key burglaries

There have recently been a number of crimes where premises have been broken into with the sole intention of stealing the owners’ cars. The internet has some very useful advice, but here are some extra crime prevention tips for this type of offence from Warwickshire police.

  1. If you have the opportunity, always use a secure garage to keep your vehicle in.
  2. Make sure the car is locked, windows are shut, steering lock is engaged and the keys are not left inside.
  3. If you have more than one vehicle put the lowest valued in front of the more expensive, creating an extra barrier.
  4. Use extra security devices and alarms inside and outside of the vehicle. For example, steering wheel locks and immobilisers. If on driveways use bollards and gates.
  5. Never leave your car keys on show through external windows or in a position in the house that they can be hooked out through a letter box or pet flap.
  6. If you leave the vehicle at home, take the keys with you.
  7. Fit a tracker to the vehicle. There are many different versions and designs of tracker, including one that will notify your mobile phone that the car is moving.
  8. Have the registration number etched onto the cars windows. This can be a deterrent and will also help identify the car if its stolen and recovered.
  9. Use sensor lights and good CCTV to cover the cars location and its immediate approach.

If you have any questions regarding the above please contact us on the details below or via the Warwickshire Police website.
