Kidsgrove resident and Councillor Mary Maxfield was pleased to report in the forum section that on the whole crime in the area of Kidsgrove which she is the neighbourhood watch co-ordinator (Whitehill Road and Highfield Avenue) is fairly low. Clearly this does not mean that residents should get complacent in these areas and residents need to constantly ensure that they are acting on the advice of the Police to ensure that they don’t become a victim of crime.
It appears that in the Kidsgrove area van owners should ensure where possible that they remove any tools from them overnight. This is following reports that one Kidsgrove resident had their van broken into and tools stolen from the Everest Road area.
It goes without saying that it is important that Kidsgrove resident’s report all crime to the local Police to ensure that I true picture of what is happening in the local area can be established.
