Bob­bies on the beat

The News went on the beat with EK South’s new com­mu­nity cops to find out how their pres­ence was im­pact­ing on the lo­cal com­mu­nity since they went‘back-to-ba­sics’.

Alanna Fiona O’Don­nell wrote: “It’s a re­ally great sight to see and must give com­fort to the el­derly and other vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple – as well as a de­ter­rent to any­one think­ing of car­ry­ing out any shenani­gans.”

An­nette Rus­sell said:“I’ve seen these two of­fi­cers a few times and have had a laugh and a chat with them...it is very re­as­sur­ing to have lo­cal po­lice that are in the com­mu­nity. Hope it con­tin­ues!”

Hans van Hen­ten posted: “About time ex­cel­lent ini­tia­tive.”

Char­lotte McGrath wrote:“I made a com­ment about bring­ing back bob­bies on the beat cou­ple of weeks ago after see­ing van­dal­ism in the town cen­tre – long may they con­tinue.”

El­derly ward clo­sure

A care of the el­derly ward at Hairmyres Hospi­tal was closed with pa­tients moved to an­other ward as part of a ser­vices re­view.

Emma-Jane Swal­low wrote: “Shock­ing the size of East Kil­bride and they’re clos­ing down ser­vices that are needed.”

Les­ley Tur­ton said:“This is a dis­grace for a newly-built hospi­tal and ev­ery depart­ment is ei­ther clos­ing or trans­fer­ring. What was the point of build­ing this hospi­tal? What a waste.”

Linda Wat­son Mullen posted: “That’s a dis­grace, the nurses in that ward were fan­tas­tic.”
