Your Local Conservative team led by Mark Adams and Cllr Alex Balkan, work closely with our MP, Dr Ben Spencer, to tackle issues affecting our community in Egham Hythe and to represent you at the council and parliament.
Mark and Alex have heard from numerous residents who are concerned about anti-social behaviour locally, particularly around Pooley Green. No one wants to feel uncomfortable walking in their community or seeing litter and broken glass at Pooley Green children’s playground.
The problem is that Runnymede Borough Council and the police say they do not receive enough reports from residents to justify more action, and so we do not see the police presence and council resources we need.
Mark said: “Anti-social behaviour and litter are real quality of life issues and can have a big impact on how safe or happy residents feel about living in Egham. So I am launching a new Neighbourhood Watch scheme, where we can report incidents big and small and Cllr Alex Balkan and I will follow these up with authorities.
“It will only work with your support so please join us. All it takes is an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. With community-led action, we can make a big difference for the better.”
The police say they do not receive enough reports to prove this and increase their focus on the area. Well, let's increase those reports!
