Stay Safe this Halloween and Bonfire Night

Halloween and Bonfire Night can be a lot of fun as long as everyone is respectful and plays by the rules.

Avon and Somerset Police have  created a Halloween Code for trick or treaters to keep safe. We also have posters for households to let young people know if they’re not happy to receive callers and a poster for shop owners that which can be used to restrict the sale of items that can be used to cause mischief at this time of year (fireworks, eggs and flour). .

Here’s our guide for a safe and happy Halloween and Bonfire Night:

Trick or treaters

  • Stay in a group.
  • Make sure a responsible adult or guardian goes with you.
  • Plan your route before you leave the house and make sure someone knows where you are going.
  • Carry a torch and wear reflective clothing.
  • Never enter a stranger’s home.
  • Respect others’ property and don’t call on homes that have the ‘sorry no trick or treat’ poster.

    Parents

    • Supervise younger children.
    • Remind teenagers to respect others’ property.
    • Encourage children to call only on their friends.
    • Make sure you know where they’re going, who with and when they’ll be back.
    • To download the posters go to https://www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/newsroom/features/stay-safe-this-halloween/

Travellers at the Tumps- Update

Bristol Magistrates Court has now issued the summons for proceedings for an Order for the removal of the travellers from the Tumps which will be heard by the Court on Tuesday.
The summons was served yesterday afternoon on all relevant parties. If the encampment has not removed itself by Tuesday’s hearing time, an Order will be sought from the Court and arrangements will be made for it to be executed on the site as swiftly as possible with bailiff and police support. In the meantime, the site will continue to be monitored by the Traveller Unit.

Article 4135 | Published - August 25th, 2017


Travellers at The Tumps-Update

Following expiry of Notice S77 with travellers remaining on site, South Gloucestershire Council have now issued legal proceedings under S78 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order act and have already liaised with the courts to secure a court hearing. There is a process that needs to be adhered to, but in the meantime, it is also confirmed there is continued negotiating taking place to encourage the Travellers to move voluntarily.

Article 4115 | Published - August 23rd, 2017


Travellers at The Tumps

We are aware that there are still currently 16 caravans on the land known locally as The Tumps, the land that is owned by the Town Council

There is a legal process, which we are going through as quickly as possible and are we grateful to South Gloucestershire Council for its support in assisting in undertaking this process.

The travellers have been served with a direction requiring all individuals, caravans and vehicles to vacate the site by Wednesday afternoon. If any remain on site after the expiration of the notice, South Gloucestershire Council will commence formal legal proceedings to seek their removal

Article 4118 | Published - August 22nd, 2017


Update at Travellers on The Tumps

Please note that Patchway Town Council has served an eviction notice on the unauthorised encampment at The Tumps. This notice states that they are required to vacate by 14:00 hours tomorrow, Tuesday 22nd August 2017. Should there be failure to comply with this notice then the Town Council will work with South Gloucestershire Council to evoke legal proceedings.

Please also note that the swiftest way for those involved to be removed is where there is evidence of significant increase in crime and disorder after encampments have been set up. Police advice is to ensure all incidents are reported – that will help provide the evidence the Police need in order to move people on using their Section 61 powers, in additional to the current legal process for eviction currently being pursued by the Town Council.
