"Excellent attendance at last night's PACT meeting for the Trimdon Colliery and Deaf Hill area. Lots of debate. Some progress and some frustrations vented, but most importantly it was good to see the community sticking together and supporting the police. Two County Councillors in attendance also. It is important that people continue to report their concerns to the police and pass on any information or descriptions. The police have the names of all the young people who have been involved in most incidents of antisocial behaviour. From the information shared with myself, I can say that they come from across the four Trimdons.
I would also add that fear of crime is often worse than the actuality in terms of the amount within the Trimdons. Sometimes reading posts on FB can lead you to believe that you are living in a suburb of Beruit, when in reality the Trimdons continue to be a good place to live with people still heavily engaged in the community. There are, always have been, and always will be, disaffected young people and families who are hard to engage. Some will grow out of it and some, sadly never will. But the vast majority of young people and families are good, decent and in need of community support.
We are fortunate that the Trimdons are blessed with a wealth of community organisations and community spirited people. In truth the Trimdons are well served best by the people who call one of the four Trimdons - home."

**Update 30th July 2022 - no reply received from Trimdon Foundry Parish about this comment, either to this website or on our Facebook page **
After the PACT meeting at the Station Road community centre, a resident asked if their comment could be published online - they did not wish to be identified:
“ It was nice to see so many at the PACT meeting, all our local county councillors attended, a Trimdon Parish councillor and the clerk from Trimdon Parish Council, but very disappointing that none of Trimdon Foundry Parish Councillors were in attendance”
If any members of Trimdon Foundry parish council would like to comment it would be appreciated. There is no recent information on their own website, as no minutes or agendas have been published for some months.
