What’s On The Agenda At The Aughton Parish Council? Crimes?

No idea, the APC Website  tells us “Not Found The requested URL /Agenda2019.html was not found on this server. So you could turn up on Monday night and take pot luck.

Crime might be listed. Aughton is becoming lawless, as recent events indicate. We have endless driving/speeding traffic crimes on Long Lane and Prescot Road. Still no SPIDs despite the parish being filthy rich. Interesting that Granville Park area is still a crime hotspot.

The empty old Granville Park nursing home had been a drugs and booze party venue for locals.

The excellent QLocal reported the recent devastation of the Cockbeck Bowling Club  [pic courtesy of QLocal] by “yobbos, which saw rubbish strewn in the corner of the green where the offenders had been smoking and drinking after climbing over a nearby wall”. 

We had the appalling playground incident when sharp blades were attached to the childrens’ slide on Winifred Lane play area.

Crime is on the increase in Aughton. The APC and local police hold secret monthly meetings at which crime statistics are disclosed. Crimes are read out quickly at APC, but are not then published until the minutes of that meeting come six weeks or so later. The past three meetings disclosed show September 11004 CHAIRMAN/VICE-CHAIRMAN/PARISH CLERK’S SEPTEMBER MEETING WITH THE LOCAL POLICE – a brief report was given on the informal meeting held 5 September 2018. There had been 12 reported crimes since the last meeting;  October 2018 11016 CHAIRMAN/VICE-CHAIRMAN/PARISH CLERK’S OCTOBER MEETING WITH THE LOCAL POLICE – a brief report was given on the informal meeting held 2 October 2018. There had been 14 reported crimes since the last meeting.

But the third meeting, Minutes Of Meeting Held On Monday, 12 November 2018, 11027 Chairman/Vice-Chairman/Parish Clerk’s November Meeting With The Local Police – a brief report was given on the meeting held 7 November 2019. There had been 25 reported crimes since the last meeting.

So here we are, paying the police precept, a local police station saved some time ago by local residents against the wishes of the then APC, and still the APC holds its secret meetings to discuss Aughton crimes increasing month on month while using the mushroom method of communication with Aughton’s residents. Is any other area as bad as this?
