Undesirable Activity in our Area

Undesirable Activity in our Area

Dear residents, this is to update you on our current situation regarding undesirable activity in Malthouse Lane, the car park servicing the park, the Causeway and Valley Road.

We are supporting our residents fully and have been highlighting these issues for the last three months.

As is usual in the summer months  not only have visitor numbers increased but also anti social behaviour and drug use/dealing.

We asked and were given extra police patrols. These are ongoing along with plain clothes surveillance and a multi agency operation which is involved on the lakes.

The Anti Social Behaviour Team from Stratford District Council will also be working alongside the police, led by a Sgt. Thomas.

We are doing our best to monitor the situation and we ask that residents work with us. Continue reading Undesirable ActivityCommunity…

Tommy Godwin Challenge - get on your bike and raise money for Marie Curie

TG web small


Want to set yourself a challenge this year? Then why not get out your bike and take part in the Tommy Godwin Challenge on 25 September?

This event was set up in 2013 to honour the 1948 Olympic medallist Tommy Godwin and to raise funds for the Marie Curie hospice in Solihull where he spent time towards the end of his life. The ride starts and finishes at the hospice in Marsh Lane. Last year we exceeded our target of paying for a day of running the hospice by 50% so this year we are aiming to pay for two days.

Tommy may have been a successful Olympic track cyclist, but he also enjoyed cycling in the Warwickshire lanes and, in later years, was always keen to encourage other cyclists, either established stars or total newcomers. With this event we aim to replicate Tommy’s experience of enjoying the countryside on our doorstep together with his vision of encouraging young riders and others starting out on their cycling journeys.
