March Update for Upton
We hope that all the residents of Upton are well and keeping safe.  Here is the monthly news update.
We have been out with the speed camera equipment on Long Lane, Caughall Road and Liverpool Road.
The Community Speed Watch has been set up and volunteers have been out in the area.  Vehicles found to be speeding by the group will be issued warning letters by the police.  If you would like to volunteer please email me on
Police Surgeries
We have been holding all our Police Surgeries on line to keep everyone safe but we will be looking to move these back to face to face meetings.  I am at the Pavilion most shifts if you’re ever passing and need to speak to me.
We have been into schools to talk to students about internet safety and how to report issues. 
We will be out looking at school parking to please park in a considerate manner.  Do not park on white or yellow zig zag lines, no not block the pavement, driveways or drop kerbs and don’t park on grass verges.  Do not leave engines running and where possible walk to school.   
Pavement parking
We have had complaints about pavement parking and blocking the roads on Alford Road, Cornwall Road and Woodlea Avenue.  I have been out and spoken to residents about the manner of their parking.
Criminal damage
A resident has had their window smashed by a golf ball in the area of Wealstone Lane.  We believe this has been another resident playing golf in their back garden.  Please be considerate to your neighbours and not do any activity that could cause damage to residents nearby.
War Memorial
It appears that children have drawn on the War memorial on the roundabout on Mill Lane.  Please talk to your children about the importance of not doing this.  This has caused distress to a lot of residents who attend the area regularly to pay their respect.
Anti Social Behaviour
Youths have been climbing over the gates at County Sports Club and causing issues and damage. Please make sure you know where your children are and what they are up to.
