RBWM RESIDENTS’ NEWSLETTER

Recreation Ground Remains Open

Broomhall Park Recreation Ground remains open for walking and use of the playgrounds during the period of National Lockdown.  However, this is for local residents ONLY.

National Lockdown rules clearly state:

You must not leave or be outside of your home except where necessary. You may leave the home to:

  • shop for necessities, for you or a vulnerable person
  • go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home
  • exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.
  • meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one
  • seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness, or risk of harm (including domestic abuse)
  • attend education or childcare – for those eligible

If you do leave home for a permitted reason, you should always stay local – unless it is necessary to go further, for example to go to work. Stay local means stay in the village, town, or part of the city where you live.

Please take the time to read the guidance and advice displayed at many points around the recreation ground to keep you safe whilst you visit.  And remember, as your visit should be for a limited time only, the toilets remain closed.

As no food or drink has been permitted in the playground since it re-opened, we would once again request that visitors abide by these rules and reduce the amount of litter which is placed in the bins provided – a council employee must empty these – so every piece of litter you bring, and leave puts someone else at risk.

To discourage families travelling from outside the area from visiting the park and playgrounds the car parking facility has once again been significantly reduced.

Remember – HANDS – FACE – SPACE

Thames Valley Police Consultation

We are currently seeking your views on the future of our front counter provision across Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

We’ve launched a public consultation to hear what you think about our plans which have been developed to adapt to the different ways in which people contact the police, to meet the changing needs of the diverse communities we serve and to make necessary savings.

It is very important we establish the views of as many of our residents, businesses and partners across the diverse communities we serve.

The consultation seeks views on a proposed reduction in the number of front counters from 16 to 11, which would save approximately £1.4m.

Since March 2020, TVP has operated with just five of its 16 front counter sites open. Seven re-opened in October 2020.

The proposal does not affect police officer numbers nor the number of police bases we have so the public will not experience any difference in officer visibility in our communities.

Under the plans, the force will retain its front counters at Milton Keynes, Oxford, Reading, Slough, Aylesbury, High Wycombe, Abingdon, Banbury, Newbury, Loddon Valley and Maidenhead. The hours of their opening are also being reviewed.

TVP has 79 police bases forcewide, which are not affected, nor being consulted upon.

The consultation is hosted on the digital platform Snap, and will run until 31 January. Further details and a link to the consultation are available on our website.

If you would prefer to obtain a paper copy of the consultation please call 01865 542895 to leave your address for a copy of the consultation to be sent to you.
