Eynsham Neighbourhood Management Update - June

Posted: 10/06/2008 17:02:18

Neighbourhood Specialist Officer PC Richard Conner reports:

“We are having problems with car crime throughout the neighbourhood; please be careful when parking at beauty spots and always remember to not leave valuables in your vehicle. We live in a quiet and very safe area, but we can’t be complacent.


Much of the car crime experienced has taken place in the Eynsham area.
A few vehicles have been deliberately scratched or had windows smashed; this includes damage caused to a French coach parked in Back Lane car park on Wednesday 14 May? We need to nip this in the bud, so if anyone has seen anything, please get in touch with us.

“Also, between Monday 5 May and Tuesday 6 May in a lay-by on the A40 a dumper truck and a Volvo digger were stolen. Did you see anyone acting suspiciously?

“On Tuesday 6 May speed enforcement was carried out in Witney Road where 90 vehicles checked. Five motorists were given warnings, so please slow down. The Speed Indicator Device (SID) was taken to Oxford Road on Wednesday 28 May where vehicles were checked and a number of warning letters were sent.

“On Friday 9 May stones were thrown at the Old Church in Mill Street at 9.30pm causing damage to windows. The same thing also took place in Mill Street between Thursday 1 May and Monday 12 May.

“On Friday 16 May a local youth went behind the counter in the Spar and stole cigarettes. He has been arrested and charged.

“On Thursday 1 May during the May Day Parade, the team had the please of escorting the children from Beech Road to The Square and back.

“The Eynsham annual community clean up day takes place on Sunday 29 June. The Neighbourhood Action Group is looking for volunteers to help with the litter pick. If you are available between midday and 2pm please meet at the recreation ground. Equipment and gloves will be provided.”


“On Tuesday 6 May, the SID was deployed in Eynsham Road but none of the vehicles were over the limit, which was reassuring. The SID was taken to Eynsham Road on Wednesday 28 May and a small number of vehicles were sent warning letters.

“I attended the parish annual meeting Wednesday 21 May to report to the members that crime is slightly down on the previous year.

“Overnight on Tuesday 27 May and Wednesday 28 May there were three incidents in the village that were probably connected. A burglary to sheds in Bell Lane, criminal damage to Alan Astons and another burglary at Cassington Nurseries. Did you see anyone acting suspiciously in the area on this night?”

North Leigh

“On Tuesday 6 May, speed enforcement was carried out at East End and three drivers were given warnings. On Friday 23 May, speed enforcement was carried out in Common Road. Twelve vehicles were over the limit and will receive a warning.

“The parish annual meeting was held on Thursday 22 May. The good news is that overall crime was down by 13% and criminal damage down by 20%.”

“However, on Tuesday 13 May a vehicle was damaged in Windmill Road. But, PCSO Keen identified the offender by her enquiries and the youth was dealt with.

“On the same day Neighbourhood Action Group members visited North Leigh Youth Club and were impressed by the facilities available to local youngsters.

“A bike was stolen from Evenlode Close. This has since been found by PCSO Keen and returned to the owner. Please be careful with your bicycles – lock them or lose them.


“Everything seems to be all quiet at the moment.

Stanton Harcourt

“PCSO Robert Hopping attended the parish’s annual meeting on Thursday 15 May to report that crime was down by 32% and criminal damage down by 20%.”

“Between Saturday 26 April and Tuesday 6 May the office at the waste disposal site at Lynch Hill was broken into.


“PCSO Hopping attended the parish’s annual meeting on Wednesday 14 May to report that incidents in the village were down on the previous year by 35%.”
