SNT Article 5

Good Afternoon All,

With the recent news that some of the lockdown measures are to be lifted due to a drop in Covid cases coupled with the turn from the wet weather, it is certainly an uplifting start to the spring months.

A couple of vulnerable adult cases have been raised to us in recent weeks, where we have attended properties that are in a serious state of disrepair inside causing a health risk to residents within. I appreciate that realistically police are not the right agency to deal with any long term care packages, however we can make the necessary referrals to other agencies if appropriate. If you have concerns about neighbours or community members and don’t know where to turn, then please contact us and we can advise and visit where necessary

We currently have two student officers within the team (Pc Callum Ridyard and Pc Laura Hazlewood) and this weekend has seen them out and about dealing with anti-social behaviour incidents. The team have issued a section 59 notice (anti-social use of a motor propelled vehicle) and ASB notification letters to young person’s riding a quad bike across fields with no permission from the land owners. If they are caught on the quad bike, or the quad bike is used in a similar incident in the next twelve months, we will seize it.

Often anti-social behaviour can by a symptom of vulnerabilities within a family or can highlight safeguarding concerns for individuals, so it is important for us to be aware of any incidents involving young people, please keep on reporting any anti-social behaviour.

The Safer neighbourhood team are taking part in an operation for rural crime over the coming weeks, where we will be working with our rural crime team patrolling and stopping any ‘suspicious’ vehicles. I obviously can’t tell you any specifics, but I will try and keep you updated with progress reports.

Watch this space!!

Kind regards


On behalf of Leominster Safer Neighbourhood Team.

Research on behalf of Herefordshire Council

From Impact Consultancy and Research

This information has been circulated to key community contacts and organisations including food banks and debt advice support, parish council clerks and all ward members.

We are currently undertaking research on behalf of Herefordshire Council to identify the impact of COVID on local families. In particular we would really like to hear from working families that have experienced very difficult times financially – maybe for the first time. Have you experienced any of the following as a direct result of Covid 19:
• Been unable to pay household bills or buy sufficient food for your family
• Difficulty in paying mortgage or rent
• Inability to work due to having children at home
• Inability to work due to illness (either Covid or another illness)
• Redundancy or reduced working hours
• Loss or closure of business if you are self-employed

Families have faced huge challenges as a result of the Pandemic, and for many this had led to financial difficulties that have never been faced before. Herefordshire Council and partners can offer support but they need to understand what support will be most valuable to ensure that resources are not wasted.

Between 8th February and 17th February we want to talk to between 20-25 families. We want to listen to your story and how and why you have been impacted. We also want to understand what support would be most useful to you – this will help ensure that the Herefordshire Council and partners are able to offer the best support in the future.

Please reply to Claire Carter,, if you are willing to participate in this research. We will then contact you by telephone at a time that is convenient for you. All participants will receive a £20 supermarket voucher.

Many thanks
