Welcome to Speen, Shaw & Donnington Neighbourhood Action Group

Police would like to update you with information about a recent burglary;
Sometime between 8.20am and 5.45pm on the 1st November a property in Speen Lane, Newbury was burgled. The offender(s) gained entry by forcing the kitchen door. An IPad was stolen (URN 1204 of 01.11.11).
If you have any information about this incident please contact the police on 0845 8 505 505 and quote the URN number and date.
New Police Non-Emergency Numbers
Thames Valley Police is due to go live with 101, the new national single non-emergency number on 14 November 2011, which will replace the 0845 8 505 505 number. Both numbers will run side by side until the end of March, but if demand for the 0845 8 505 505 number drops it may be discontinued earlier.
Calls to 101 (from both landlines and mobile networks) cost 15 pence per call, no matter what time of day the call is made, or the duration of the call.
Everyone calling the police for non-emergency matters will now know exactly how much a call will cost them, and can be assured of equal access whether they are on a pay-as-you-go mobile or a home landline.
If a call is made to 101 within a force area that has not yet ‘gone live’, the caller will hear a recorded message telling them to redial using the relevant non-emergency number.The routing will be based on the same system as 999 calls.
If a caller is using a landline the routing will be based on the caller’s postcode and the call will be directed to the police force for that area. If a caller is using a mobile, the call will route using the mast that the phone is transmitting from.
Our Notice Board is up!
Members of the NAG would like to thank Thames Valley Police, Sovereign Housing Association, Newbury Town Council, West Berskhire Council and NAG members for their generous donations of time and money to enable us to erect our own notice board on the corner of Burchell Road. This will save us some shoe leather and reduce the need for photocopying. It is an easy way to keep our residents up to date with the work we are doing - our thanks to everyone who was involved in this project!
