Sutton Police to the rescue!

Police officers took part in a number of snow rescues using Sutton’s marked police 4x4 Mitsubishi Shogun this week.

The first was at 2pm on Tuesday, when officers on routine patrol spotted a blind woman with her dog.

The woman, aged in her 30s, had become stranded at Carshalton railway station on her way home from work. The officers gave the woman and her dog a lift to her home a few streets away in the area of Lower Road, Sutton.

Some 3 - 4 hours later the same officers and police vehicle gave a man, aged in his 30s, a lift to St Helier Hospital Sutton after he had slipped in the snow and broken his leg crossing Stafford Road, Wallington.

The officers, who were on patrol in the area, made a makeshift stretcher out of a builder’s board they found nearby. "The man had been waiting some time for an ambulance and we used the police vehicle to take him to hospital so he could be treated," said Insp Hinks.

Police in Sutton also took a surgeon stuck in gridlocked, snowbound traffic to hospital for a life saving operation.

The surgeon was in a queue of traffic in Park Road, Carshalton, when he approached a marked police vehicle on routine patrol in the area.

The surgeon explained that he had to get to St Helier Hospital, Sutton, to operate on a critically ill patient. He said the patient was bleeding internally and it was important he got there as quickly as possible.

The surgeon had been called at his home in Purley at around 7.30am this morning to go to the hospital, but had spent the next two hours in traffic and had only got as far as Carshalton by 9.45am.

Snow proves unlucky for suspected prolific burglar in Sutton
A suspected shed burglar was caught by police in Sutton after his footprints in the snow led officers straight to him.

They were called at 02:20am on Friday by a resident in Onslow Gardens, who had been woken by a noise outside.

Officers arrived on the scene and spoke with residents before following the trail of footprints and a pushbike track in the snow.

They followed them to Blenheim Gardens, in and out of resident’s driveways, before they disappeared as it seems the suspect had got on his bike to get away.

Following the bike track in the snow, officers continued to Clyde Road and the junction with Ross Road.

The footprints and bike track again disappeared, but this time snow was removed from the top of the wheelie bin, leading the tracking police officers to believe that the suspect had jumped over the fence into a garden.

Before long, he was heard rustling in the bushes and arrested.

The suspect, aged 17, matched the description given by the residents in Onslow Gardens and was arrested for burglary, including a number of break ins in nearby Ross Road.

Enquiries continue.

Josoblu donates gifts to Kingston Hospital Charity - Born Too Soon

Online bag retailer Josoblu has teamed up with Born Too Soon, Kingston Hospital’s Neonatal Charity, to donate and develop new baby products for the Hospital’s Neonatal Unit.

Josoblu was set up earlier this year by Joelle Seksum and her husband Benedict.

The company has donated two of its Momymoo Essentials change bags to be used with the transport incubator, are giving gifts to parents and will be making specially designed covers for the incubators.

Kingston Hospital holds a special place in their hearts – both of their daughters were born there and Joelle was closely monitored through both pregnancies after suffering a series of miscarriages prior to the birth of their first daughter, Lucie.

As Joelle explains, picking a charity to support was an easy one for them. The care they received at Kingston Hospital was second to none.

Joelle, from Wimbledon, said:

“Following my miscarriages and during my two pregnancies with the girls the support and guidance we received from the hospital was excellent. We went through some really tough times, hence the reason we wanted to do something to support the work of Kingston Hospital’s neonatal unit.

“The charity and the work they do is very dear to us - Donating the bags, gifts and having covers made is our way of saying thank you, and we certainly plan to do more to support them in the future.”
Born Too Soon was set up 25 years ago at Kingston Hospital by parents and staff. It offers support and advice to families whose children are being cared for on the Neonatal Unit.

Kingston hospital staff go red


Kingston Hospital’s Matrons will now be more visible to patients, relatives and staff with their new red uniforms.

The new red uniforms were introduced as part of Kingston Hospital’s drive to improve the visibility of Matrons on wards, to help promote them as a main point of contact and to improve the quality of the patient experience.

Jenny Parr, Director of Nursing at Kingston Hospital said:

“In response to the Francis Report, which was published in February, several new initiatives were introduced at Kingston Hospital, one of these being the new Matron uniforms - Many patients I have spoken to seem to really like the new uniform, as they find identifying key staff a lot easier, which in-turn most definitely helps create a more comforting and better experience for our patients.”
Michelle Gray, a Matron at Kingston Hospital commented:

“The Matrons have now been wearing the new uniform for over a month and I have noticed that since wearing it there has been a vast increase in the number of patients and visitors that approach myself and fellow Matrons - I really enjoy wearing the new uniform, as it makes me more visible and I think approachable to both staff and patients.”

Surrey's Air ambulance manages to keep going . . . . . . .

Air Ambulance carries on flying!

For the second time this year, Surrey Air Ambulance has continued to provide a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service despite adverse weather conditions.

They were called to a female who had been kicked in the head by a horse at a farm near Guildford. The helicopter was the first emergency service to arrive at the scene. The patient who was in her early 20’s sustained lacerations, was treated by the crew before they transported her by helicopter to a land ambulance who took her to the Royal Surrey Hospital.

During the last heavy snowfalls in January this year, the charity continued to provide an Air Ambulance service and some members of the crew slept over at the base for up to five nights.

This year the Air Ambulance the helicopter has attended over 600 medical emergencies. The service which is almost entirely funded by public donations flies during daylight hours, 365 days a year.

The dedication of our crews in travelling to work in such extreme weather conditions and sleeping at the base when necessary is exemplary and I am proud to be a part of this organisation.’

Tunnel consultation extension welcomed in Richmond
Commenting on Thames Water’s extension of its Thames Tunnel super sewer consultation, Cllr Virginia Morris, Richmond Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “We welcome the extension to the consultation. The exercise to date, despite the protestations of Thames Water, has only elicited a response from a mere 1,000 Londoners. Compared to the population of the capital, this is insignificant.

Cllr Nicholas True, Leader of the Council, added: “This is a hugely important project, but it has the potential to have a massive negative impact on people living close to the site.

“For this reason we need a credible public consultation and to date we have not had this. One of our many concerns is the removal of thousands of tonnes of waste from the tunnelling works. Thames Water has indicated the majority of this will be carried out by river. However we know from previous experience that when similar undertakings were given for the Olympics sites, in fact the vast majority of the waste was removed by road.

“If the majority of waste from the works were to be removed by road in the Barnes area, we believe the impact on local people would be completely intolerable.”

Family of Sutton war hero found

The family of a WWII hero killed in a bombing raid in Germany has been tracked down after a worldwide appeal.

RAF Flight Sergeant Frederick Wall died in March 1945 when his Lancaster Bomber was shot down while attacking an oil plant at Salzbergen.

Sutton Council has now managed to find his cousin, 96-year-old Alice Perkins, to tell her that a memorial has been unveiled at the crash site in honour of her cousin and his comrades.

Mrs Perkins, who lives in Sutton, said: “I was touched to hear they were honoured in such a way. I remember clearly being with Fred at a party shortly before his last flight and he mentioned that he ‘better enjoy himself as it might be his last chance’.”

All seven crew members on board were killed. They were temporarily buried at the crash site before being moved to the British Reichswald War Cemetery near Kleve.

Authorities in Germany organised for a memorial to be unveiled at the crash site to honour the men’s sacrifice but could find little trace of Sergeant Wall’s family.

They contacted Sutton Council, who launched an appeal for information. It led Alice Perkins’ son Graham contacting Sutton Council’s press office, as well as the discovery of the final photograph of the crew. Information was also received from sources in the USA and Canada.

Cllr Ruth Dombey, Deputy Leader of Sutton Council, said: “I’m really glad that we have been able to find his relatives, it was a bit of a needle in a haystack situation, but thanks to a lot of hard work and some luck, Sergeant Wall’s family now know about the memorial which honours the great sacrifice that he made for his country.”
