Thank you for recommending a workman to add a conservatory to my house. He did an excellent job and was a very tidy workman.Was a relief to find someone reliable and trustworthy.
Thank you for the feedback Nita, they are an excellent company, and reasonable prices as well.
SirWith reference to your latest newsletter summer 2016 and your piece "are you guilty of anti-social behavior?"First and foremost, anti-social behaviour is deemed in law to be a criminal offence and therefore such references made in your newsletter to such acts are made on your assumptions to be a criminal offence. The parking of any vehicle that is taxed, mot'd and insured is by law allowed to park anywhere on the public highway where no parking restrictions are enforced. Parking a road legal vehicle outside any house, let alone a neighbours for any amount of time, is not Sir as you state an act of "anti-social behaviour"
There are no such antisocial behaviour laws that state a vehicle belonging to yourself cannot be parked outside a neighbours house for any duration of time. (Ref local policing advice)You also state that continual DIY noise is also in your consideration ant-social behaviour. There is no restriction to DIY noise within the hours laid down in law so to state this is anti-social behaviour is incorrect. Is professional builder noise also ASB in your opinion? Like loud music played after a certain time of night is, greed.The slamming of doors is evidently not any criminal offence under any anti-social laws either.If your references to all of the above have come from a single source, you have unfortunately failed to mention much bigger acts of "ASB" by a certain individual new to the area. The last 18 months turning the road into a constant non-stop building site.
I refer to rear extensions will continual noise, dirt, mess, vans parked over driveways for weeks on end. Continual bathroom renovations with vans double parked, parked outside neighbours, parked across driveways, noise, mess for weeks on end. Five weeks of absolute hell whilst a front garden is ripped up for a block paving driveway. Five weeks of 4 vans blocking the road, parked outside my house day in day out. Vans and tippers left across my driveway, completely blocking it not just an overhanging bumper and abused when asked to move them. Tons of sand, cement, bricks dumped on the grass verges and across my drive. Five weeks of continual brick dry brick cutting that took 3 weeks to have professionally cleaned form the exterior and interior of my property and neighbours. Two cars with ruined paint that are now booked in for resprays at huge cost to me due to brick dust damage.That Sir is ASB on a level that your source nor your piece mentions.
Obviously this will be addressed in your next issue of newsletter?
The article you refer to was in fact written for Neighbourhood Watch by a retired Police Officer , and was meant to make residents aware of the many problems that they might cause their neighbours.
Our advice is, make your problems known to the Parish Council, our PCSO’s and Wealden District Council,also try and gather video evidence, and seek legal advice from a solicitor.
Sorry we cannot be of more help to you.
Is it not time for a Neighbourhood watch newsletterwith more pages in it so we can get more information?

Thank you for your enquiry Bill Tate.
The last person to call me Raymondo was my dear Mother.
As much as we would like to circulate a larger newsletter,this would incur more cost and as WNW has very little financial support...No can do.....Ray....mondo.
Good morning Neighbourhood watch,
I am ratherconcerned that I have not seen a PCSO on any streetin Willingdon for over a year, would you know why this is, and might the situation improve?
Can’t really give you a positive answer to our very first feedback question,however, I believe that around 100 new PCSOs are being recruited in Sussexduring the coming year, still rather thin on the ground, but better than nothing.Unfortunately over that past 20 years we have seen one Government make cutsto our Police numbers, followed with increases by another, followed by further cuts.
Personally I would love to see far more Police Officers patrolling our streets, andwho knows perhaps one day our wishes might come true.....Ray
