Cedar St theft

Posted by diana b on June 18, 2017 at 12:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Lenka posted over on Six Streets Facebook page a warning to neighbours that intruders had been in her garden overnight - stolen a bike and generally made a mess.

So please don't leave items around - esp stuff that could be used to break into your/ neighbours' sheds or houses.

Happy Ending - the child's bike was found dumped on Newton's Walk near Longford St. So Lenka may already have it back!

Lost your Tabby?

Laura would have posted this but her laptop lost a battle with a mug of coffee. She is going make a report  to the council,  hopefully they will take a photo so owners can be sure of what has happened.

Unfortunately, it is sad news.

A cat was lying dead outside the flats on Kedleston Rd between shops and Jonty (opposite ibus shelter near Wheeldon Ave) She says the tabby all over cat was clearly hit by a car. It had no collar  - fairly small and fluffy rather than completely smooth coat.  

If you think you know the owners, they can contact the council

Bogus Tree Services

Posted by diana b on June 6, 2017 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

If you have had a flyer through from Woodlands Tree Services - claiming to be based on Woodlands Rd Allestree - then do not use them. Put it in the recycling straight away.

It is a bogus company - the van has false plates. They target elderly people, charge way more than going rate and do a bad job.

This info was forwarded to me by local police - plesae make sure any older neighbours/ relatives know not to use this company.

There was no description of the men - beyond one having Irish accent.

If you do want any garden work done - get someone to recommend a guy (or check Trade Directory)

A38 delays

Posted by diana b on May 30, 2017 at 8:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Stretch of the A38 will be closed next week for abnormal load convoy

Our roads policing unit will be escorting an abnormal load through South Derbyshire and into Staffordshire next week, resulting in the partial closure of the A38.


The load is a number of huge brewery drums destined for the Molson Coors site in Burton, and will be travelling there on the evening of Thursday, June 1.


Officers regularly work with haulage firms to help escort them safely through areas where they might need our help.


This particular delivery will travel along the A50 from Doveridge, then along the A516 towards the A38.


At this stage, Officers will be closing the northbound carriageway because the convoy will be travelling south along it from Egginton to Clay Mills, due to its size.


Although we know this will cause a disruption for motorists, we’re doing it so road users are safe while the convoy approaches its destination.


If you are planning to travel in that area at about 8pm on June 1, please expect delays or plan alternative routes to avoid the A38.

Last night at about 11.15 we noticed 2 youths trying gates on Arthur Hind Close. As we spoke to the police on 999, they climbed into one garden, only to run off a minute or two later having presumably been disturbed. Unable to sleep, I looked out again at c. 11.45 and they were back. We rang the police again but they emerged from one of the gardens with a bike and headed off for Kedleston Rd.  The police did arrive to check up around midnight.

They were extremely brazen - it wasn't very late, lots of houses overlook where they were, and the street lighting is excellent. They were about 5'10 in dark tarcksuits and hoodies, with covered faces. 

BTW - CCTV would have been useless as you couldn't identify them at all in their "uniform".
