Children’s Halloween Disco — Saxmundham

Children’s Halloween Disco — Saxmundham
Saturday 30th October Primary School Hall
This very popular event commences at 5pm and runs until 7pm. This year we are asking for donations at the door to help with the cost of the event. For obvious reasons we ask that children under 12 be accompanied by an adult. This will be a fancy dress disco with prizes for the best dressed. The all familiar ‘Debs Sweet Stall’ will be open selling sweets, snacks and soft drinks. Kids, you will have a great time in the spooky, creepy settings of the school hall where many a pupil have stood under the clock in the corner of the hallway.
Update 31/10/10
We had a really successful evening with excellent support from the parents (and children). Next year we will install the large marquee directly outside the entrance doors which will give us the extra space required. This can be used for the sweet and drinks stall along with respite for some of the parents :)
Many thanks to all that attended and to Ian, Alison and Dave for their help on the evening.
Debbie & Neil Thomson.

Saxmundham New SNT Priorities

Police are asking parents to join them in efforts to deal with anti-social behaviour in Saxmundham by talking to their children about the effects bad behaviour can have on other people – and by ensuring they know where their children are and what they are up to.

After officers received a number of reports of anti-social behaviour in the Carlton Park area this has now been made a priority for the local Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) however, in addition to patrols in the area and enforcement work, police are also looking for longer term solutions.

Sgt Daye Goddard, of the Saxmundham and Framlingham SNT, is making a direct appeal to parents.

“Do you know what your children are up to tonight? This isn’t just about the fact that they may be out causing problems for other residents; it’s also about their safety. Carlton Park is particularly dark and isolated and there are concerns that young people under the influence of alcohol can be particularly vulnerable and make poor judgements.

“They often won’t realise the dangers, or the potential consequences, of their actions. We need all members of the community to come together to help solve these issues and, along with parental guidance, we and partner agencies, such as local councils, also need to look at the provision of activities for young people.

“We are looking to establish a steering group and would be interested in hearing from anyone who would like to be part of this. We at the Safer Neighbourhood Team will do our bit along with our response team colleagues, however others must also play their part.”

Sgt Goddard also urged local people to report incidents of anti-social behaviour.

“Part of the problem we have is residents not reporting matters at the time. I know that some think it is a waste of time but how can we hope to deal with issues if they are not reported to us? We need people to get involved, to tell us what is going on and to be prepared to be part of the solution.”
