PACT Meeting Thursday 30th June
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.

ASB and Criminal Damage
June23rd 2022 - Trimdon Parish Council Chairman and Parish Clerk have written to the Police and Crime Commissioner raising concerns about antisocial behaviour and criminal damage in the Trimdons, and to voice their concerns at police response times to incidents. It is imperative that people report incidents - sadly, failure to report means that the County Council and Police cannot be held accountable for any inaction on their part. If it isn't reported it didn't happen. They have requested that the police send a representative to Council meetings and report on action they have taken.
