ROAD SAFETY STICKERS FOR YOUR DUSTBINS

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 14:56 by Phillip Woodward

The Parish Council has obtained a supply of stickers promoting road safety which can be placed on residents' dustbins.The stickers show a 30mph road sign inside a red ring with PLEASE DRIVE CAREFULLY underneath.The idea is that when the dustbins are put out on the pavement for collection they will be seen by passing motorists who will hopefully take notice of the message.The stickers are available to anyone living on one of the main roads through Pilsley (i.e. Parkhouse Road, Rupert Street, Bridge Street, Church Street , Morton Road, Station Road or Hardstoft Road ).If you would like one or more stickers to place on you dustbin(s) please contact Pete Stevenson on 01773 872557 or janet@jms49.plus.com

'PALS' CLOTHING BANK - ChurchStreet

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 12:03 by Phillip Woodward

The Parish Council are concerned that the PALS Clothing Bank skip, which is situated on Church Street, at the entrance to the Commercial Hotel Car Park, is being used as a dumping ground for general waste. In recent months TVs and cookers have been dumped alongside the skip. This is NOT an official waste dump. It was only ever intended as a donation point for clothing and shoes but our enquiries reveal that the company or charity which placed it there do not appear to be trading any more, as we have tried contacting them to remove or empty it without success.Therefore, it is probable that it will not be emptied in future (it is full at the moment) and we request that if you have large items for recycling you take them to the Local Authority recycling points at Duckmanton or Chesterfield, or use your maroon bins for smaller items.It is worth pointing out that the location of the skip is covered by the Church Street/Bridge Street CCTV cameras. If items continue to be dumped there, the Council will review the footage and if we can identify persons responsible we will report the matter to North East Derbyshire District Council for them to investigate and prosecute if necessary. Dumping of waste is fly-tipping and fly-tipping is a criminal offence.Please act responsibly!

VAN OWNERS BEWARE !!

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 11:56 by Phillip Woodward

The Police have asked us to publish the following information following a spate of thefts from vans in the surrounding villages, including Pilsley:

Dear Resident,
Over the past few weeks we have seen an increase in offences of theft from motor vehicle/criminal damage to motor vehicles in the local area. In order to ensure you do not become a victim of Autocrime there are a few simple measures you can take: More »

• Lock your vehicle and ensure all windows are closed.
• Remove any valuable items from display, ideally taking everything into your property.
• Remove any marks left on your windscreen by a satellite navigation system (the marks left from the cradle are an indication that a sat nav may be in your vehicle.)
• If possible park your vehicle near a street light or as near as possible to a residential property.

If you use your vehicle for business purposes, meaning you have tools and other valuable equipment inside, best practice is to lock your vehicle away in a garage or other safe premises. If this is not possible then ensure you have adequate security features on your vehicle or ask a member of your local Police team for a sign stating:
'No valuables left in this vehicle overnight.'

Although these measures are not going to guarantee you will not become a victim, there is a chance it will deter would-be offenders.

If you require any further crime prevention advise then please contact the police who would be happy to help on 101 or if you have access to the internet then please visit
