PC Chris Allan wites,

Dear Resident

Yesterday we received reports of a male knocking on doors and then trying car doors on driveways. This happened at 1630 hrs and the male was seen on Coulsdon Road.

The male is described as white, 5ft 8 tall, medium build, he was wearing a grey t-shirt with black jogging bottoms. He had short brown hair with tattoo’s on his right arm. The male was carrying a large holdall on his back.

Please make sure you lock your vehicles and items left in the vehicle are hidden away. If you see this male acting suspiciously around houses or vehicles please call 999 immediately.

Regards,

PC 518 Chris Allen

FAQs
Who can attend?
Anyone with an interest in Croydon.

Is there a cost?
No. Places are free.

Do I need to book a place?
Yes, please. This will speed up registration and means you won’t need to provide details on the night.

We can register you manually on the night if you haven’t booked and if places are still available but this may mean queuing, delayed entry and potentially delaying the start of the meeting which we’d prefer to avoid.

Booking via Eventbrite, whether or not you bring your ticket with you, will speed up your entry, so please do book or email us so we can sort out registration ahead of the event.

PLEASE NOTE: Those who pre-book will be given preference if numbers exceed capacity at any meeting.

Is this council led or run?
No. CCC is an independent group run by Croydon residents. CCC is partly funded by a small grant from Croydon Council but is independent of the council.

Are meetings and activities aligned to any political party?
CCC is strictly apolitical. Everyone attending is asked to respect this in the comments made during meetings and in any literature brought to the meeting.

Is the venue accessible?
Yes. The venue is wheelchair accessible.

Parking can be provided for blue badge holders with prior notice so please get in touch well before the meeting so arrangements can be made.

There is no hearing loop.
