Rhino fundraiser offered BBQ lesson by fire crews

London Fire Brigade is offering to give fire safety advice to a barbecue-a-day fundraiser after pictures of him cooking caused concern.

Matt Hartley, from Wimbledon, plans to have a barbecue every day for a year in a bid to raise funds to adopt a rhino.

Pictures in the press showed Matt cooking under a gazebo which is a huge fire risk as the heat from a barbecue can easily catch the flammable material alight.

Fire crews from Wimbledon are inviting Matt to visit them for a unique lesson in barbecue safety.

If he attends and takes the Brigade’s advice firefighters have promised to sponsor him in his fundraising efforts.

Mayor of Sutton Sean Brennan congratulated Lloyd’s TSB staff in Sutton High Street for their vigilance in preventing a 48-year-old customer from withdrawing £16,000 to pay for minor building work.

Staff at the bank became suspicious after the customer explained the money was to pay for builders who had cold-called at his home on the A217 in North Cheam just two days earlier in May.

The builder’s verbal estimate covered some roofing work, which should have cost only a fraction of the amount being charged.

The bank called police and PC Simon Curzon spoke to the customer and the builders. The customer’s savings are still in his account and the builders have not returned.

Presenting the bank with a commendation certificate today, the Mayor said bank staff had set an excellent example of how banks are working with the police and council to keep Sutton safe.

The certificate marks the success of the ‘banking protocols’ - a partnership agreement between banks, police and Trading Standards to protect customers from unscrupulous traders and fraudsters.

The banking protocols were launched in Sutton Town Centre and have since been extended to Worcester Park and North Cheam.

The scheme is currently being extended to Cheam Village where all banks there are due to have been visited by police and Trading Standards by the end of this week.

A roll-out to Wallington Town Centre is scheduled shortly.

Council tenant in Egham evicted after persistent anti-social behaviour
64 year old James Edwards of School Lane was finally evicted from his council owned property on Friday May 31st after three and a half years of persistent anti-social behaviour.

The Council issued proceedings in North Surrey County Court and following a two-day trial, an order for possession was made in March. Possession was to be obtained within 42 days.

Complaints were received about a noise nuisance with Mr Edwards banging around in his property and coming and going throughout the early hours of the morning, keeping his neighbour awake for long periods of time.

This escalated to visitors calling at all times of the day and night, typically staying for short periods of time, though on a few occasions two particular individuals stayed for weeks at a time.

Surrey Police executed two search warrants at the property between November 2011 and January 2013.

Swabs taken from inside the property during the second warrant tested positive for Cocaine, Heroin and MDMA also known as ‘Ecstasy’.

Film release Inspires NHS drive for young Blood

They’ve teamed up with new cinema release, ‘World War Z’ to drive the initiative. It’s hoped that youngsters inspired by the film will be looking to do their bit in the fight for humanity and in their own small way…save the world!

Just one blood donation can save the lives of up to three people.

NHSBT needs 200,000 new registered donors each year to keep donor levels stable, as each year illness and other factors mean people take a break from donating.

Hats off to the volunteers in Surrey

End of year statistics released by the crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers have revealed an impressive 1270 pieces of information were passed on to Surrey Police between April 2012 and March. This is an increase of 13.3% when compared with the previous year.

Various campaigns such as the recent “Rat on a Rat” Facebook advert, sponsored by the Police & Crime Commissioners office, have been launched in the county to help bring local criminals to justice. The Crimestoppers’ Surrey Committee is absolutely delighted by these results.

Twelve local volunteers currently play an integral role in engaging with local communities and spreading awareness of the charity and the anonymous reporting facility it provides to the public to pass on information about crime without revealing the callers identity. Yesterday the Crimestoppers’ Surrey Volunteer Committee met at Reigate Town Hall for their annual meeting and to celebrate another successful year.

With the charity celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, these statistics represent a continuing awareness and trust of Crimestoppers as both a charity, and an organisation that aids the fight against crime.

Appeal following daylight attempted robbery of woman in Weybridge
Surrey Police is appealing for witnesses following the attempted robbery of a woman near Brooklands Industrial Estate in Weybridge.

The offence occurred during daylight hours, between 7.40pm and 8pm, last Friday at the junction of Wellington Way and Sopwith Drive.

The victim, a woman in her 30s, was walking along Wellington Way when she felt someone pull at her bag from behind.

She was then punched to the side of her head causing her to fall to the floor and kicked while on the ground. Her mobile phone was broken in the incident but nothing was stolen.

Parents in Richmond urged to use the MMR catch up campaign
Richmond’s Director of Public Health, Dr Dagmar Zeuner, has urged parents to vaccinate their children against measles, as the NHS launches its MMR catch up campaign.

Dr Zeuner, has warned that the latest figures for the borough reveal that only 88% two-year-olds have had their first MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccination and by the age of five 79.5% have had both doses needed to maximise protection.

While these numbers are at their highest level and there have been no cases of measles in Richmond for the last 12 months there are still large numbers of unimmunised children who are vulnerable to measles.

The most vulnerable group are 10 – 16 year olds that missed their MMR vaccination in the 1990s because of now discredited concerns about the vaccines safety.

This has resulted in a large number of now 10 – 16 year olds that have still not received their MMR vaccinations. To ensure that this group of children and teenagers are protected a MMR catch-up programme will commence in June. In Richmond, un-vaccinated and partially vaccinated 10-16 year olds will be eligible to receive the MMR vaccinations through their GP practice.

Cats in crisis at Battersea

Concerned staff at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home are urgently appealing to cat- lovers to rehome a rescue moggy this summer after a huge surge in feline residents has pushed the charity’s cattery to maximum capacity.

Battersea currently has more than 150 cats at its London centre and has taken around 2,600 calls from cat owners wanting to bring in their pet since the start of the year.

A sudden surge in arrivals is believed to be caused by the rise in litters during the summer months when the warm weather stirs cats’ instincts to seek out a mate.

Handsome two to three year old Malcolm, is one example of a perfect companion who is dreaming of a garden to sunbathe in. The white and black active boy was brought into Battersea in March as a stray, like 46 per cent of all cats brought to the rescue centre, and is looking for a second chance in a permanent home.
