It is hard to believe that it is the June Bank Holiday weekend already.
Just a quick note with some updates for you all.
With the holiday weekend, many will be taking the opportunity to get away for a few days. We wish you all safe travels and remind you to take care on the roads which will be busy.
For those of us remaining, please keep an extra eye out for strange vehicles, trades people knocking on doors and for alarm activations. Burglars also know that many homes will be empty and this is an opportunity for them.
We have already started to see the impact of the annual Bloom in the Park traffic on Auburn Avenue. Gardaí will be out to try to keep things moving but for shorter journeys it is likely that walking or cycling may be the best way to get around.
Garda Tool Marking Event:
Mountjoy Community Policing will be hosting a tool marking and security advice morning on Tuesday 4th June 2019.
Theft of tools has been a significant problem over the last couple of years and this may be of interest to those with expensive tools and equipment.
The event takes place at Phibsboro Electrical Wholesalers Ltd on North Circular Road between 8.30am and 11.30am. If interested please bring your tools and Driving license / photo ID.
Castleknock Tidy Towns:
We have all noticed the great work being done by Castleknock Tidy Towns and appreciate their efforts in improving our area. They will be out again this Saturday – meeting at 10am at Myos Car park and I believe that they are tackling the area along Castleknock road between the village and the entrance to the Georgian Village.
They would love to see some more volunteers join the group. If you can be available, bring your gardening clothes, gloves and a brush or a spade and join them.
At our AGM we discussed that some residents in Beechpark Lawn expressed an interest in participating in our Neighbourhood Watch scheme. We met again with them over the last few days and they will canvas opinion among their residents about interest in joining the scheme over the coming weeks.
Our scheme borders Beechpark Lawn (around 35 houses) at the Pines and across Auburn Avenue at Hadleigh Green so if there was an interest from them in joining, they would be very welcome and it would make good sense.
We have an open invitation from our local locksmiths (D15 and Lacey Locksmiths) and from B-at-Ease Security solutions (alarms and CCTV) for a free assessment of your current home security. If I can get an idea of the numbers that might be interested in such an assessment, we might arrange an evening in the coming months where they will be in the area.
Enjoy the bank holiday weekend.
