Chipping Norton Neighbourhood Management Update
A/Sgt Rosemary Dilsaver brings June’s update for Chipping Norton and the surrounding areas.
"The criminal damage that occurred in Edward Stone Rise, and mainly caused by stone throwing, appears to have stopped following a detailed investigation. All the houses were targeted in a leaflet drop asking for witnesses to such acts to contact the local police and we would like to thank all those people who contacted us with information.
"General anti-social behaviour has subsided this past month which is very pleasing, however there have been more seizures of alcohol. On the subject of alcohol, an operation was carried out in conjunction with West Oxfordshire District Council on Friday 25 May concerning the sale of alcohol to underage buyers. Under strict guidelines, several licensed premises were visited by underage youths who attempted to buy alcohol. Where they were successful, the offending seller was issued with a fixed penalty notice fine of £80. It was a credit to local licensees that out of seven premises visited only two failed the test."
Charlbury (including Finstock, Spelsbury, Fawler)
"Nothing serious has happened in these areas; however youths in Charlbury have been spoken to about their anti-social behaviour and minor criminal damage."
The Wychwoods (including Ascott, Shipton and Milton-under-Wychwood, Chadlington, Chilson, Sarsden, Kingham, Churchill, Salford)
"The Speed Indicator Device (SID) has been out at work in The Wychwoods, ably supported by members of the Chipping Norton Neighbourhood Action Group. Letters have been sent to those drivers found to be exceeding the speed limit."
The Bartons (including Middle Barton, Sandford St. Martin, Ledwell, Over Worton, Nether Worton, Great Tew, Little Tew, Swerford and Enstone)
"On Friday 25 May, an incident occurred in the grounds of the Sports and Social Club in Worton Road. Earlier in the evening alcohol had been seized from underage youths by Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs). Upon their return, they found a young man who was extremely intoxicated and unable to stand properly. While attempting to escort this him from the scene to take him home, another person became involved and the incident escalated and minor injuries were sustained by the PCSOs."
"An operation was carried out on Friday 4 May in the Chipping Norton area aimed at tracking/catching the travelling criminal; not a speed trap as some people thought! Over 600 vehicles passed through the check, of which 23 were of interest to the police.
"The Neighbourhood Team invites anyone who has a question or wants to find out accurate information straight from the Neighbourhood mouth to contact the team on 0845 8 505 505
