Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

This message is dated Wednesday 20th February 2019 for Maidenhead.
FIRST:  We have seen a series of thefts from Supermarkets across the area.  The offenders, stand around the payment area and watch over shoulders, as people enter their PIN numbers.  Then between there and the car park they pick pocket the aggrieved stealing, their purse.  Later, they use the card and make withdrawals !  Because the pickpockets are so good, the aggrieveds, are unaware and do not report the theft, allowing the thieves to use the cards for some time !
NEXT: The letters have just gone out today, to everyone who applied for the last round of funding, under the PCC’s Police Property Act, saying whether or not they were successful.
If you were successful, can you please let me know, so that we can publicise your project and encourage others, to bid in the next round.
If you were successful - let me have brief outline of your bid, what you hope to achieve and how difficult / complicated it was to put your bid together.
I have had this in from the Borough to circulate:
We are holding an information event, to update you on plans for regeneration in the town.
There will be two sessions - Friday 1 March - 1pm - 7pm and Saturday 2 March - 10am - 4pm.
The events will take place in the former ‘Next’ unit in the Nicholson shopping centre.

Funding for improved cycling in Maidenhead, has been approved by Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), while a new cycling action plan, has been approved by Cabinet.
The cycling action plan, sets out the council's aspiration for the next 10 years, to promote cycling and improve the infrastructure for people. This includes, new cycle routes and cycle parking, as well as improved signage and other supporting measures.
The action plan, which has been developed with input from the Cycle Forum, councillors and parish councillors, aims to encourage residents, commuters and visitors, to choose cycling, as an everyday form of transport, as well as for leisure and fitness.
The action plan, is supported by significant investment, which includes the £2.8 million 'Maidenhead missing links' scheme, with another £2.2 million awarded by the LEP's, Local Growth Fund (LGF).
