Scooter and Motorbike Thefts

The Latchmere Safer Neighbourhoods team reports that 7% of all Motorbikes and Scooters that are stolen in London, are stolen within the Borough of Wandsworth. Here is their advice about how to protect 2-wheeled Motor vehicles: Ensure your motorcycle or moped has adequate security and you have sufficient insurance to cover any loss. You are less likely to have your motorcycle or moped stolen if it has an alarm fitted. Alarms with movement sensors are preferable as they activate when the motorbike is moved. Fit a tracker which can be monitored with a smart phone app (see link below). A ground anchor and good quality disk locks, security shackles and chains will prevent someone easily removing your motorbike (see link below). Consider property marking your motorbike components with a suitable product. This will make it less desirable to thieves and harder for them to dispose of it or sell it on. Park your bike in a locked garage or enclosed area whenever possible. If not, cover your bike with a suitable cover and park in a well lit area or in a Park Mark approved car park. If you see anyone acting suspiciously around mopeds, see one driving dangerously or erratically please contact 999. If you think one has been abandoned please contact the Police on 999 or 101.

Estate Walkabout Today!!

Hi all, here is a list of things that we talked about today on our walkabout, Marc Howell Senior Estate Manger and Tony Belton Latchmere Ward Councillor accompanied us. It was a very productive walkabout.   The trees and bushes that overhang pathways or block out light from windows. To maybe have the pavements steam cleaned and broken slabs to be replaced. Tarmac to be removed from brick paving and replaced with brick. When the Estate will be decorated. Bin cupboard doors to be replaced and painted. Wye Street parking restrictions not yet in place. Gritting on Wye Street. Residents overgrown garden on the estate. More lighting to the alleyway through to Fawcett Close. Bin Cupboards still not cleaned The tree outside the Community Hall, used as a dumping ground, maybe a feature to be built. To have a larger area outside the Community Hall  that will be paved. Maybe use a space on the Estate as a secure Motorbike Park. I would also like to add that if you have a communal garden and would like to improve your space, please contact me via the website. The Committee and I work very hard voluntarily to try to improve the surroundings that we live in, the RA has accomplished so much over the years. Please feel free to leave any comments below I will try my best to contact...
