PARKWATCH UPDATE: 17th December 2012
Hello and welcome to the second bulletin of the all new Parkwatch for Myatt's Fields Park

The purpose of Parkwatch is to provide a forum for information exchange so we can work together to keep Myatt's Fields Park a safe and vibrant space for all to enjoy.

So, if you notice anything untoward, please do report it to parkwatch@myattsfieldspark.info and we will circulate the matter on the maillist and, if appropriate, report it to the relevant authorities.

UPDATES

-NEEDLES
The contractor that changes the sanitary bins in the toilets reported this month that syringes were found in the bin from the disabled toilet in the adult toilet block.  Drugs paraphernalia was also found in the nature area. All was disposed of in the depot sharp box. 

Please would all park users keep out a watchful eye and report anything untoward to park management and to parkwatch@myattsfieldspark.info 

-TOILET CLEANING
Complaints from local residents about very early cleaning of the toilets in the Park and cleaners using flashing lights while working were passed onto LB Lambeth. The contractor has agreed that operating at 4.45 AM in a residential area is not appropriate and have promised to amend their cleaning route so the cleaner will visit Myatt’s Fields Park later in the day. The park management would like to pass on their sincere apologies to anyone affected by this. If anyone does notice that the problem re-occurs, please contact kolszewska@lambeth.gov.uk.

ANOTHER KEY CONTACT 
The last newsletter listed key details to call if anyone is in trouble, notices anything suspicious or has anything to report. Another key contact is the Safer Neighbourhoods Team.

-CRIME PREVENTION
From the Neighbourhood Watch Manager:

With less then a month to go until Christmas please ensure all your properties are always secure and that extra precautions are made - in particular do not leave valuables visible in motor vehicles.

Also, beware of Christmas lights heating up wrapping paper and ensure you turn them off and blow out all candles when leaving the house.
