CROWBOROUGH'S CHRISTMAS CRACKER
The festive season got off to a 'cracking' start on Friday with our annual 'Christmas Cracker' event which saw the town centre full of stalls, music and entertainment. There was an absolutely fantastic turnout as the weather stayed fine and everyone could enjoy the Christmas atmosphere. Thank you to all who came along - and particular thanks must also go to:
1st Crowborough Guides - for transforming the Town Hall into a magical grotto
Crowborough Lions - for their fantastic sleigh (and for arranging for Father Christmas to come along)
Millbrook Garden Cente - for donating our wonderful Christmas tree
Dolari Morley - for switching on our Christmas lights so expertly
and finally, to all the members of the Town Council Groundstaff team for their hard work setting up the event.
Operation Blitz is a scheme run by Wealden’s Policing Team to address youth anti-social behaviour (ASB). It specifically targets those being disruptive, causing a general nuisance, or committing crime often as a result of alcohol and/or drugs. A team of officers are assigned to the Operation which runs every Friday and Saturday between the hours of 6pm till midnight (hours may increase during summer school holidays). Subscribers receive an email each week prior to the start giving them a number to call to report youth ASB directly to the Blitz Officers, without the need to go via 101. The number is changed each week, according to Officers on duty, and is therefore only for use during the Operation’s hours and only for incidents of this type. The number is for members only and is not intended to be shared with others. During the Operation hours the dedicated team of Officers also patrol the known ‘hot spots’ in the district, between responding to reports.
An update on each weekend’s activity is provided in the community message the following week.To sign up please fill out the form available here .
Use of drones prohibited on council owned land
Following an upsurge in usage of drones on council owned recreation grounds and public open spaces, the Town Council has resolved that the flying of drones on council owned land for recreational or commercial purposes be prohibited.
The reasons for this decision are:
- The close proximity of many of our sites to neighbouring residential and business properties and the potential risk of causing alarm, distress or harassment to occupants
- The proximity to commercial aircraft flight paths cause potential danger to the safety of aircraft
- Potential risk of accidents, injury to other site users or property as a result of use
- Granting permission could leave the Town Council liable for subsequent actions brought about by drone activity when operated from land under our ownership
Exceptions will only be considered where usage of a drone device helps reduce risk in the workplace, i.e. working at height, building survey work, etc.
