Wardens move in to Winnall

Press Release: 14/06/2006

Winnall in Winchester is the latest area of the city to benefit from Neighbourhood Wardens.

Winchester City Council has appointed two new Wardens and they will be moving to cover the Winnall area this week. The Wardens, who have already been a great success in Highcliffe and Stanmore, will be on hand to deal with various community issues, including abandoned vehicles, fly tipping, graffiti, vandalism and general complaints of anti social behaviour.

As well as the day to day duties, the Wardens will be hoping to implement some of the community projects that have already been carried out successfully in Highcliffe and Stanmore such as young people's football coaching and the vulnerable vehicles scheme. Further details of the wardens work can be found on the Winchester City Council website www.winchester.gov.uk  

Cllr Frank Pearson, Portfolio Holder for Environment, Health and Safety said, "Successes in other areas of the city have shown that the Neighbourhood Wardens are a great asset for both the council and the community. It is excellent that we are able to extend their work into Winnall where I hope that residents and the Wardens will work together to enhance their community".

The Wardens will be covering Winnall on a shift basis between Monday to Friday, covering various hours between 8 and 6 with a late evening shift one night a week.

If you would like to contact the Wardens for any assistance please use the single non emergency number 101 or to find out more about the service please ring 01962 848 911.
