Series of events to outline crime and ASB work in Padiham

Release date: 
Thursday, 12 October, 2017

A series of events is being held in Padiham over the coming weeks to highlight the work being done to combat crime and anti-social behavior (ASB) in the town.

The events will also give residents the opportunity to raise issues and areas of concern, as well as finding out more about what is happening to tackle local problems.

The borough’s MATAC group, which brings together a wide range of agencies to take a co-ordinated approach to tackling crime and ASB, is organising the campaign.

Councillor Lian Pate, who chairs the group, said: “We’ve acted on concerns raised by people in Padiham. The aim is to give residents the opportunity to raise issues and to ask questions.

“It’s also a chance for them to find out more about what is being done to make Padiham safer. A lot of that work goes on quietly, behind the scenes, and people may not be aware of all the hard work that is taking place. Various organisations that are working in the town will come together to explain what they are doing and to answer questions from residents.”

An online Police and Communities Together (PACT) session will be held on Wednesday 1st November between 4pm-7pm. During the session people can ask questions via social media (Facebook/Twitter) and email and they will get responses from the police and council officers, together with representatives from Burnley Leisure and Lancashire County Council’s youth outreach services.

People are also being encouraged to submit their questions before the event by emailing communications@burnley.gov.uk as well as taking part in the “live” online session.

On Thursday 16th Novemberone of the council leader’s regular surgeries will be held at the town’s Tesco supermarket, from 6pm to 8pm. As usual the surgery will provide a chance for residents to ask Councillor Mark Townsend questions about any aspect of the council’s work, not just crime and ASB.

On Wednesday 22nd November a public drop-in event will be held at Padiham fire station, Station Road, between 3pm-6.30pm. A range of organisations including the council, police, Calico, Burnley Leisure and other youth services, Burnley FC in the Community, and representatives from the voluntary sector will be on hand to answer questions and give information on the work being carried out in the town to tackle crime and ASB.

Please note there is no public parking at the first station – people should use nearby public car parks.

Further details on all these events will be released nearer the time.
