Blackheath Westcombe Local Police Meeting Jan 2011

On Wednesday evening I attended the quarterly Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) meeting where all the local chairs of neighbourhood watch teams along with the local ward police and community support officers along with Councillors get together to discuss community safety over the last 3 months.

The Blackheath Fireworks back in November 2010 were discussed which appeared to be better organised from a police point of view now that the firing location had been moved from last year’s location.

The Nimby Festival was also discussed, which is due to take place on the Lewisham side of Blackheath in September. This saw concerns from members of the panel about noise level and the numbers of people attending the event.

If you would like to get in touch with your local SNT about a non emergency you can do so here:

In an emergency always dial 999.
