Coach and Player for Ipswich Ravens Volleyball Club, Steve Hicks, attended to provide an update on what the Club has been up to since receiving a grant from the Committee.

The grant was awarded for the provision of apparatus and fittings to develop facilities in the sports hall at St Alban’s High School, with the aim of supporting the overall development of Ipswich Ravens Volleyball Club in increasing the standard of and participation in the sport by students and local residents.

Steve Hicks presented photos and reported that the development works are now complete. The work has enabled more players to compete at a higher level and Steve was pleased to share that the Ladies team won the Suffolk Ladies League.

Policing Update

The Ipswich East Safer Neighbourhood Team updated the Committee on policing priorities for the area:

  • The main update was about planned changes to the local policing structure, which are in response to a funding deficit.  More Police Officers will be brought into the Neighbourhood Partnership Teams. This should mean more frontline Officers patrolling over extended hours, but the number of PCSO’s will be significantly reduced. The changes are due to be implemented by the end of October 2018.
  • Operation Parkland is in motion, with hotspots for summer related ASB being targeted.

To read further information about policing changes, see the ‘A Local Police Service for Suffolk’s Future’ booklet, and for crime in your area, download the Safer Neighbourhood Team newsletter from the website.

You can report antisocial behaviour and nuisance in your neighbourhood online. Follow the link to our website where you can report a problem, find advice and access the Community Trigger.

Senior Engineer at Suffolk County Council, Julia Procter, attended to provide an update on junction improvements at Felixstowe Road and St Augustine’s Road taking place in North East Ipswich presently. Questions and answers about more general highways issues followed.
