StreetSafe is a service that allows you to report safety concerns in public places without giving us your name (anonymously). This includes issues like poorly lit streets, abandoned buildings, or vandalism, as well as instances where you feel unsafe due to someone following or verbally abusing you.

Please note: StreetSafe is not for reporting crimes or emergencies. If you witness a crime or emergency, please call the police on 101 or report a crime online. If you’re unsure whether something is a crime or not, read our advice.

Examples of situations that should be reported to StreetSafe include a poorly lit alleyway that makes you feel unsafe or a park with broken equipment that poses a safety hazard.

More information can be found at the link below and the app can be loaded from either the App or Playstore.

Know Your Place

Know Your Place is an interactive digital collection of historic maps which offers a unique insight into the history of the places where we live, work, and visit in South Gloucestershire. It provides the opportunity to explore our neighbourhoods and how they have changed, through using old maps, historic images, and other heritage data. Know Your Place has a Community Layer, which members of the public can add any heritage related information to. This could be about something someone has an interest in or has fond memories of. Contributions can be made in a variety of ways, such as sharing memories of people and places, mapping dug-up discoveries from back gardens, or recording a local architectural detail or building that has personal meaning. This information can be provided in different forms, such as photographs, personal memories, or documents. Anyone is welcome to add to the Community Layer and the information added will be available for everyone to discover. The Community Layer allows people to engage with local heritage, and the more that is added to it, the richer and more diverse our knowledge of local heritage will become. Link

Emergency numbers for Electrical and Gas emergencies

In 2016 the UK launched a nationwide emergency number for Electrical Emergencies, but many are still unaware of whom to call in the event of an electrical emergency or power cut. 

The national number 105 is used for: 

  • Reporting Power Cuts & Requesting Information During Power Cuts 
  • Dangerous Low-lying Cables
  • Reporting Broken Cables
  • Electrical Emergencies Involving Water
Likewise, the Emergency gas number 0800 111 999 is to be used in the event of:
  • Smelling Gas (at home or in public spaces)
  • Carbon Monoxide monitor alerts you to a leak
  • Open Fire spotted in a public gas line
  • ****This number is to be used regardless of if you have a connection to the mains or if you use a tank***

The old Telephone Box

The old telephone box is now in the ownership of the Parish Council and during the ‘lockdown’ has been used as a public library for anyone who wishes to either leave any books or take away to read.  Over the coming months this will be fitted out with some shelving to hold the books. Thanks goes to Cllr. Mike Goode for undertaking this task.

The role of Parish Council

Parish Councils are the lowest tier of Government in England. The Parish Council is as the title implies responsible for the area enclosed by the parish boundary which can include various communities. Parish Councils are an essential part of the structure of local democracy and have a vital role in acting on behalf of the communities they represent.
