Have a safe, sustainable and happy Halloween this weekend

From Royal Greenwich Council: 

There's no denying it, this Halloween is going to be very different to Halloweens we've had in the past. But, that doesn't mean we can't still have lots of fun!

Unfortunately trick or treating is not allowed this year - but there's a great alternative way to go on a spooky adventure. Rather than knock on people's doors (which would break social distancing rules), why not go on a pumpkin hunt instead? People in the area are bound to have pumpkins in their windows, so set off with the children you care for in groups of no more than six people in your bubble, and for every pumpkin you spot, you can give the little ones a treat!

Send the Council pictures of your Halloween celebrations, or tag them on social media @royal_greenwich and using the hashtag #GreenwichHalloween.

Find out here how to reuse your pumpkins and household items to make the spookiest night of the year even spookier...

Gardening this Saturday

Our gardening volunteers will be planting up a small but prominent flower bed in Catherine Grove on Saturday, October 24th, meeting up at 10am. Please come and help if you can. It's unlikely that there will be more than six people, but if there are some can work in other parts of the garden.

Vehicle theft in the Triangle

In the last few days there have been two reported incidents of vehicle crime within the triangle. A white LandRover discovery (67 reg) sport has been reported stolen at some point between Friday night (9 October) and Sunday afternoon (11 October) from the Blackheath Hill end of Egerton Drive. It has been reported to police. If anybody has any CCTV or cameras pointed in this direction please could you check them.
In addition, a motorbike was stolen from Devonshire Drive in the early hours of Saturday morning. The police have been informed and neighbours got images of the thieves.
Please could all residents remain vigilant to vehicle crime and ensure that vehicles are locked and that no items of value are on show. Many thanks to those residents who were able to capture footage of the motorbike incident and who reported this promptly to the police.
Claire, ATA Security

How to give feedback on the traffic management changes in West Greenwich

As most of you will be aware, Greenwich Council are attempting to address the concerns of excessive and dangerous traffic in West Greenwich by reducing through-traffic on our residential streets using modal filters. Although the Triangle roads are not directly affected, the changes to access routes have inevitably provoked much discussion. 

The Council are also implementing new strategic cycle routes in the borough, notably on Trafalgar Road in East Greenwich.

You can give feedback on the trial measures implemented so far on the Council's website here:
