A safe summer in Blakers and Preston Park

A message from the Local Action Team:

Community safety in our parks is important for everyone, young and old, especially at a time when we value our outdoor green spaces more than ever. In Preston Park Ward we have two great parks and three Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) who keep an eye on activity to minimise antisocial behaviour and crime.

Our community can help make this summer a safe one by doing one simple thing – report anything you see to Sussex Police so that they can get a clear picture of what is happening in our parks and take appropriate action based on the facts.

Call 999 if there is a crime in progress or there is imminent danger.

Call 101 if a crime has finished or antisocial behaviour is taking place.

We are helping to spread the word as part of REPORT iT, a local grassroots campaign led by the newly formed Preston Park and Fiveways Local Action Team (PPFLAT). Local Action Teams are resident-led and focus on community priorities in specific areas.

PPFLAT provides the space for local residents, organisations, businesses and groups in Preston Park Ward to join the dots and collaborate on projects around local community issues. To find out more or take part, drop a line to ppflat1@gmail.com.
