Alert message sent 04/10/2021 15:38:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

FIRST:  We now have confirmation that we will be going live with the new procedure re Community SpeedWatch on 4th December 2021.  Until that date, if you would like a CSW, carried out on your road – just let me know.  We have a team of trained Community Safety volunteers, ready, willing and wanting to do them !!!

NEXT:  Saturday 12.55 p.m. Ray Mill Road West.  Unauthorised Encampment on land beside the allotments at the Blackamoor Lane end.  The Police and RBWM teams are working closely together to make sure the encampment obeys all the relevant guidance and appropriate notices will be served.

NEXT:  A phone call reported to the police and recorded as ‘Malicious Communications’ – which is a crime.  The aggrieved received a call from someone purporting to be a sales assistant with Carphone Warehouse.  The aggrieved said they were putting the phone down, at which point the caller became abusive and threatening.  The aggrieved just believed this to be a scam call and is not concerned, but wanted us to have the number from which the call was made.  If you get a call from someone you don’t know trying to sell you something or saying an account you have has been accessed and you need to update your security information – just put the phone down.  If it’s important, they will find another way to contact you.


Reminder: Waste collections change on 18 October

Leaflets informing you of the first day of your new waste collection are starting to arrive, and will continue to do so throughout the next week, so please don’t worry if you haven’t received yours yet.

Remember, food and recycling collections remain weekly; our aim is to increase recycling rates from 50% to at least 65%, which will help reduce the collective impact we have on climate and the environment.

Although up to 80% of the average waste bin could be recycled, not every recyclable item is suitable for kerbside collection. We are putting lots of information on our website to help people reduce and re-use waste and find places that can recycle items we do not. For example, many large supermarkets have started collecting soft plastics, like bread bags, pet food sachets and fruit or vegetable packaging.

Please make sure you only put items we do collect in your blue recycling bin – if it contains the wrong items, it will not be emptied

This is important as we have had black bins and recycling bins stolen in the past.  When throwing out old bank statements / credit card bills / utility bills – anything containing personal information – it must not go into the bin intact.  We used to say shred it, but that is not really necessary – but it must be torn up.  A scammer can use those addresses letters – particularly utility bills, to open a bank account in your name – you would know nothing about !!!  That is when people steal your post, to retrieve debit cards etc.

NEXT:  Grab a jab on the Covid vaccine bus next week

A unique NHS mobile Covid vaccine service is next week visiting Datchet, Horton and Wraysbury, Clewer and Dedworth West, Ascot, and Maidenhead. If you’ve not yet been able to get your jab, now’s your chance.
We’ve joined forces with NHS Frimley CCG and Solutions 4 Health to bring this local community vaccination scheme directly to where we believe it’ll have the greatest benefit. These locations have been chosen following a detailed analysis of the vaccination and Covid case rate data.
The NHS team will be administering the Pfizer vaccine - first, second and booster doses – remember the latter can only be given six months after your second jab.

Visit the bus on these dates and at these locations and times:
Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 October - Datchet Station Car Park, SL3 9ED, 9am - 1pm then at The Village Hall Car Park, SL3 9HR, 2 - 5pm
Wednesday 6 October - Dedworth Tesco Car Park 1, SL4 4JT, 10am - 6pm
Thursday 7 and Friday 8 October - Ascot Racecourse Car Park 2, SL5 7JX, 10am - 6pm
Saturday 9 October, Hurley Village Fete in Maidenhead, 8.30am - 3pm
If you want to get your jab, but cannot make the above dates or times, visit the walk-in vaccination page of the Frimley CCG website to explore your options.

The vaccine has proved that it helps protects you, your family, and friends. We also know only a tiny proportion of those currently in hospital with Covid have been double jabbed. 
You don’t need to book. But remember to socially distance. Have something small to eat and drink before you arrive. And we strongly advise you wear a face covering. This is a great opportunity to get vaccinated if you’ve not yet had the time. If you’re hesitant about the vaccine, don’t worry, the NHS team can talk through concerns you may have. Just pop down and have a chat.
If you’re displaying Covid, cold, or flu symptoms please stay at home and take a Lateral Flow Test. If your result comes back positive, take a PCR test

NEXT:  Promote your local community events

Do you have an upcoming not-for-profit community event or activity you’d like to promote in our Residents’ Newsletter?

Simply send basic information about your event to and it could be shared with over 18,000 local residents.

You just need to include a brief description, when and where it takes place, and a link to a website/social media page/contact where people can find out more.
