Travellers on Craythorne

Update on the travellers on Craythorne. Despite being within their powers the police do not consider the situation to be serious enough to take action. This could change if sufficient issues are reported to them or the situation escalates. It is therefore important that anyone witnessing any illegal activity should report it directly to the police, regardless of the nature. We are aware of the damage to the gates, the playing fields and to dogs roaming around the play areas off their leads. Reporting to the Parish Council or via facebook will not add any weight to the situation, it must be to the police.
In the meantime the Parish Council has started legal action to resolve the situation. This will come at a significant cost to the village and will take several days before a court order can be issued. We will keep you informed about progress.
