Issues discussed at latest Quality Streets

THE COMMUNITY Wise centre in Old Town hosted a Quality Streets event giving residents the chance to discuss problems with the emergency services and local authority officers.

Dozens of residents took the opportunity to speak to officers from the Neighbourhood Policing Team, Eastbourne Borough Council’s community enforcement team, environmental health and dog warden, Eastbourne Homes, Trading Standards, Neighbourhood Watch, the local neighbourhood panel and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service’s home safety team.

Issues ranged from dog fouling and litter to concerns about youths and home fire safety.

Sgt Fiona Munro said, “We had a very good turnout to the event with people of all ages coming and speaking to Officers.

“It’s clear that Quality Streets events are giving the community an opportunity to ask questions of all the agencies involved and we welcome the feedback that we receive.”

The next Quality Streets event will be held at the Trinity Centre, Trinity Place, Eastbourne on February 22.
