The Parish Council has been informed that the 154 bus from Leicester to Loughborough and visa versa will continue to operate during the closure of Cropston Road, Anstey for 2 weeks over Easter. It will operate via Beaumont Leys to Thurcaston via Ashton Green Road, Leicester Road, Rectory Lane, Anstey Lane and then onwards through Cropston. Anstey residents needing to travel will be given a "through ticket" to Beaumont Leys where they can then change buses to travel to Leicester or Loughborough on the 154 Centrebus service. Please be aware that there may be slight delays at each stop en route. Notices will be displayed at bus stops in Anstey.
There has been a spate of theft from vehicles around the Quorn area over the past couple of days; please ensure that you do not leave anything in vehicles especially on display as this will go a long way in preventing/deterring criminals. Try to improve on any lighting where vehicles are being parked ie: security lights on front driveways, CCTV is also something worth considering especially coupled with good security lights.

Are you concerned about speeding in Cropston? This is your chance to do something about it. The Clerk to Thurcaston & Cropston Parish Council has organised Community Speedwatch in conjunction with Leicestershire County Council. This is going to take place for two weeks from 30th June 2018 - 13th July 2018.
Volunteers are needed in Cropston, training is given nearer the time and if you could just give a little bit of your time, it could make all the difference. A minimum of 6 volunteers are required but the more we have, the more locations and more times we can cover over the period.
Please contact Marianne on email@example.com to show your interest or add your name to the list of volunteers.
The noticeboard on Station Road, Cropston opposite Bradgate Road has been damaged and has subsequently been removed. It appears a vehicle struck it, snapping off the wooden posts at ground level. In the interest of health and safety, it has been removed. It will be repaired and re-installed as soon as possible.
There will be another Charnwood Police Beat Surgery on Tuesday 16th January 2018 between 6pm - 8pm at The Memorial Hall, Anstey Lane, Thurcaston.
Please come and meet your local police.
As you are no doubt aware last year, on 19 December, Policing Minister Nick Hurd announced that he was giving Police and Crime Commissioners authority to increase the amount of money paid towards policing by local tax-payers through their council tax bill by £1 a month (for those living in a Band D property).
In response I launched a survey to find out what local people feel about this rise, which is so vital for community safety in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. The closing date is noon 18 January 2018, thereby enabling me to take the responses into account during my budget planning and prepare my paper to the Police & Crime Panel which needs to be submitted by 22nd January 2018.
Naturally, I am keen to have as many responses as possible and I would be immensely grateful if you could complete the very short survey at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/7J36TD3 and also forward this email on to your colleagues, family and friends urging them to do the same.
Many thanks for your help.

Police and Crime Commissioner for Leicestershire
