Belgrave residents encouraged to take part in community day

Tuesday, 20th May 2014

A day-long event aimed at bringing the Belgrave community together with local groups and services is taking place on Tuesday June 3 – and organisers are hoping to see a large number of Belgrave residents getting involved.

The Belgrave Community Engagement Day has been organised by the Tamworth Community Safety Partnership and will involve a number of groups and organisations which operate in Belgrave, including Staffordshire Police and Surestart.

Tamworth Borough Council’s street wardens will be at Morrisons Supermarket between 12noon and 2pm, where they will be joined by anti dog fouling mascot Saxon Hound to provide help and advice on dog fouling and litter issues.

The council’s Community Development team will also be at Morrisons between noon and 2pm and then at the Exley Centre to tell residents about the new community garden project and encourage them to volunteer to help.

Other events talking place throughout the day include:

  • Surestart holding drop-in sessions at the Exley Centre between 10am and 3pm
  • 7ft police dog mascot Kash in the Exley Centre – and children can have photographs taken with him
  • Tamworth’s Chief Inspector Donna Gibbs will be in the Exley Centre, talking to residents about any issues which concern them
  • BMX Club running activities at Tamworth Enterprise College during the school lunch break period
  • Police and PCSOs from the Belgrave team touring around Belgrave throughout the day, asking residents about their concerns. Street wardens will also be patrolling before noon and after 2pm, dealing with any littering or non-removal of dog fouling
