Tonight walking home from Farringdon we saw three people by the planters opposite the Barbican Wildlife Garden. One of them, I think a girl was bending over a planter she moved back as smoke poured out and a very loud bang went off. Very antisocial. My ears were ringing
Hello Christine. This is shocking. Only today us residents in Crescent House received a letter from the Estate Office, telling us not to let in anyone we do not know into the building. It appears there must have been incidents of people who should not be let in. I know of people knocking on my door trying to sell broadband packages recently on 2 occasions. It appears matters are getting worse.
It doesn’t help when home deliveries (Deliveroo etc..) hold the door open of folk want to get in the block. As for the broadband companies (Community Broadband) which they knocked on our door, if the Estate office generated a flyer/letter to inform Residents these companies have permission to be in the blocks. I’m pretty sure that’s what they used to do, many moons ago.
It would also help is doors actually closed properly too.
In all, this is the reason why I want to do something about what’s happening on the Estate lately. It’s not going to be a quick fix, and at the moment it might be minuscule measures that can be put in place. The cluster meeting with PC Christine along with Allison and James, recognises there’s issues that need solutions. One message was clear, anything that’s deemed anti social or a noise nuisance from whatever element, report to the estate office.
