There will be an opportunity to asks questions and express concerns about crime and safety at a public meeting in Ludlow on 2 March. The main guest of the evening will be West Mercia’s Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner, Tracey Onslow. She will talk about how the commissioner’s office and West Mercia Police work to reduce crime and fear of crime. The meeting will also discuss antisocial behaviour and continuing problems with young people racing around the town centre and other streets.

Tomorrow night at 7pm, we are expecting a huge crowd at Ludlow School for a public meeting on the future of health and council services in Ludlow and Shropshire. The headline act is Philip Dunne, MP for Ludlow and Health Minister in Theresa May’s government. Philip is due to speak first, after which he will take questions.

Ludlow, as we know, has been prone to flooding over the years. For some while, we had a local flood forum but this stopped meeting after memories of the 2007 floods faded and the new unitary authority was established. We are now proposing to re-establish a flood forum under the umbrella of the Ludlow and Clee Local Joint Committee. We will be holding an initial meeting on 19 April, 5pm at The Foyer, Marston’s Mill. Everyone is welcome.

Community safety and crime to top agenda at Ludlow and Clee meeting on Thursday

Following a spate of burglaries in the area, the next meeting of the Ludlow and Clee Local Joint Committee (LJC) next Thursday, 22 October is to debate community safety. The meeting will be attended by Assistant Police and Crime Commissioner Barrie Sheldon and Inspector Rob Thomas from West Mercia police. Councillor Andy Boddington, chair of the LJC says: “In recent months there has been a spate of burglaries of households and business premises in the Ludlow area. This has added to the feeling of many residents that it’s not safe to be out and about at night, or to leave their property unattended. We’ve been asking residents in Ludlow and the surrounding villages how safe they feel.
