Hello All,


I am still waiting for our Neighbourhood Watch signs to be put on either end of our road, they are still on order maybe we get them after Christmas!

Meanwhile the Neighbourhood Watch team have sent me some stickers and UV pens you might find useful if you are giving or hoping to receive some expensive presents this Christmas that will need security code marking. They have also given me some Towergate Insurance stickers that are supposed to give members of Neighbourhood Watch cheaper home insurance.

I have also received Curtain Alarms! The Curtain Alarm is designed to help prevent sneak in burglary but it can also be set to chime to welcome visitors (I think my hairdresser has one in her salon). Note the alarms are battery operated (3AAA) and can also be switched off.


If anyone is interested in any of the above please email me on . Please please spread the word around as I know not everyone in our road has internet access and therefore would not recieve emails let alone see our fabulous Baytree website!


I would like to organise a visit from the police regarding any issues or concerns about safety in our road probably in the new year, time and venue to be confirmed. I think it would be a good idea to invite members of the Arlington Tenants Association too as our issues and concerns maybe theirs. It would be great if you could email me your questions.


If you have any concerns or questions you would like me to ask the Safer Neighbourhood Watch Police team you can email me

Hello Neighbours,

Woolwich incident.

During these times it is best to remain calm and try to carry on as normal as possible. Extra officers will be on patrol over the weekend and we are working closely with all communities in Lambeth. Below is a local press release.

Leader of Lambeth council, Cllr Lib Peck said, “The whole community in Lambeth will have been shocked by the horrific murder of a soldier in Woolwich yesterday afternoon. Our thoughts are with the victim's family.

We all have a role in protecting the borough and keeping the community safe and we are sure that people in Lambeth will stand together against those who seek to divide us or exploit this incident for their own ends. The council and police are supporting these efforts to ensure that we can go about our lives in safety. We ask everyone to continue to remain calm and vigilant.”

Matt Bell, Lambeth Police Borough Commander said, "Lambeth Police recognise that many communities are feeling anxious and concerned followed the unique events of yesterday however Lambeth borough's diversity is one of its strengths and I have today assured faith and other community leaders that we will protect and serve this community and they have in turn reiterated their condemnation of the criminal acts perpetrated yesterday and their support for the service and to work with us."

Revd Alan Gadd, Chair of Faiths Together in Lambeth said, “There are many diverse faith communities in the borough of Lambeth and all will be shocked and saddened by the murder in Woolwich yesterday. At a time like this, many people of faith will recall the multi-faith activity of recent years that has built good relationships, and once again will draw upon those relationships to offer reassurance and show solidarity.”


If you have concerns for your safety or that of the community you can contact the police on 101.

There is a confidential anti-terrorist helpline: "if you suspect it, report it" Call 0800 789 321

The safety of our residents and the prevention of terrorism are key priorities for the borough. More information and advice is information is available on the council’s website:
