Woodstock Neighbourhood Management Update
Neighbourhood Specialist Officer PC Richard Conner brings this month’s update for Woodstock and the surrounding areas.
“September has seen an increase in the theft from vehicles throughout the area. This has not been at the usual beauty spots but other locations in Wootton and Woodstock. Please do not leave valuable items on view in your vehicles, lock them in the boot or remove them especially the sat navs, they are easy to steal and sell on.
“We carried out the annual neighbourhood engagement surveys during September, visiting all the villages in the area to find out residents’ top issues. The results will be in next month’s update.”
Woodstock and Bladon
“On Wednesday 10 September between 5.30pm and 8.30am a sliver Toyota was broken into in Hensington Road and a sat nav and laptop were stolen. If you witnessed it or have any information please contact us.
“The team visited Woodstock town centre on Saturday 27 September to carry out our public engagement surveys.”
Freeland and Hanborough
“PCSO Tina Townshend held a surgery at the village hall on Friday 5 September and concerns were raised over problems with a group of local youths. The group had already been identified by the team and actions are ongoing.
“Criminal damage was caused to the benches at the Pavilion between Sunday 14 and Monday 15 September.
“The annual ball was held at the Pavilion on Saturday 20 September where the team attended and the evening went without problems.
“A public meeting was held on Tuesday 23 September at the Pavilion, Long Hanborough. Members of the West Oxfordshire Safer Communities Partnership attended along with the police team and members from the local Neighbourhood Action Group. We were hoping to recruit more NAG members but unfortunately the turnout from the community was disappointing.”
“A similar public meeting was held on Thursday 25 September at the village hall and again the turnout was disappointing. We can only presume that the community does not have any concerns.”
Tackley and Brougham
“PCSO Phil Workman held a drop-in surgery at the coffee shop at the village hall on Wednesday 10 September. The next surgery is on Wednesday 8 October at the same location.”
Kiddington, Glympton and Wootton
“On Thursday 18 September three parked builders vehicles were broken into in Rousham Road, Wootton. Did you see anything? Or anyone acting suspiciously?
“Between Monday 29 September and Tuesday 30 September vehicle number plates were stolen from a silver Nissan parked in Wootton End. The number plates will most likely be placed on another vehicle and used in a crime; did anyone else in the village have their number plates tampered with? Please let us know.
“If you can help us with any of the incidents that have been mentioned please contact the team on 0845 8 505 050 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
“We are still looking for new members for the Woodstock Neighbourhood Action Group. If you are interested or would like to know more speak to the team or visit the police station. The next meeting is on Wednesday 8 October at Woodstock police station where the new priorities will be discussed.”
