SPTRA Xmas Breakfast meeting Saturday 2 December - Minutes
Updates We had an Xmas quiz - no one got all the answer right but according to the rules (made up in the morning) our winner was Susie Abell who took away a special bottle of prosecco!
The Scout Hut Following the recent opening event we explained that the work continues but with all the support received thus far we can say we have been involved in a project exceeding £45,000 in value - for the children.
Storm tanks There's been a delay but the covers over two of the tanks are in place with delayed final commissioning around the end of February.
Tideway tunnel presentation Josh Roy joined us from Tideway (Balfour Beatty) and delivered a short presentation about the building of the Tideway tunnel - work gets fully under way at the end of February.
Freshways Dairy Finally - the court case involving the dairy and the council is scheduled to start on 4 December.
More security We have opened what is sure to be a long dialogue with the council about improved gating in the park to deter mopeds gathering and in addition a similar discussion about improvements to the barriers in the Rugby Rd alley which is used as a short cut for mopeds.
Recent scams to be aware of Criminals are impersonating gas and electricity suppliers and asking for money on the doorstep. Don't open your door without sight of their ID = no supplier is permitted to ask for or collect money in this way. Don't think about it - call 999. You can report any fraud including a scam on Action Fraud www.actionfraud.police.uk/about-us.
Police updates All of and each of the team had lots to share. In particular - no more things left in cars please. If you had new electrical goods over Xmas = don't leave the new boxes in the front garden - it makes thieves very excited.v Don't leave car keys anywhere near the front door = in fact the microwave is the safest place to shield them from the devices that can "read" them.

History of your road - here now!
A website has been set up on the original group of houses, in Alexandra, St George's and Hatfield Roads, and their history. It holds information drawn from the 1911 census on the households, occupations and birthplaces of those living there, but also covers other topics like the neighbourhood, the shops, school, church, and park, the local transport facilities, which once included our own station, Rugby Road Halt. It also looks at the area in wartime, and welcomes contributions.
More information about the history of Acton in general can be found on the website of the Acton History Group.
