Making streets safer

-

CHALVEY: Work is underway in Chalvey as part of a plan to make public areas safer to use for women and girls.

The Safer Street Fund of £23.5million was set up in the wake of the murder of Sarah

Everard in London.

A successful joint applicatio­n was made by the council, the Thames Valley office of the Police and Crime Commission­er, charity Aik Saath, and Lime, a specialist youth engagement organisati­on.

Several initiative­s have been made possible by the £514,000 award, running until the end of April.

The initiative­s centre on Chalvey, where statistica­lly there is a more of a need to make women and girls safer.

Now Chalvey Community Partnershi­p has uploaded a video showing updates being completed as part of the project.

It visited Chalvey Recreation Ground to look at the new footpath that is being built.

Further work is also planned to add solar lights in the future.

Chalvey Community Partnershi­p also visited the Montem Stream and The Fields Alleyway which have been tidied up, with hedges cut back by Slough Borough Council.
