Community Alerts

We have recently had reports of Anti Social Behaviour at the Snaith Methodist church. This year they have had three broken windows in June, another smaller window in October which was not reported to us. The most recent one was only a few days ago. There has also been graffiti on the church steps and a lot of rubbish being left there at the weekend including a condom. We are now patrolling the area on an evening. If anyone has any information then please could you report this to us via 101 the non emergency number. Also please to remind your children/teenagers that the church is not a play park and not to attend the area. We will be requesting details from anyone seen to be in the location.

What's Happening In Your Area?


On Monday the 11 th November we attended the Goddards home in West Cowick. The residents have learning difficulties and Autism and wanted an input in personal security. It was a fantastic morning and the residents made me feel very welcome




ASB around Ferry Lane & Market Place, Snaith

Reports of youths congregating and causing a nuisance along with issues of littering and graffiti and general Anti-Social Behaviour at Ferry Lane, Snaith and in Market Place Snaith. Also reports of youths on motorbikes on Ferry lane Snaith. Allegedly the riders are speeding, generally causing a nuisance and riding without helmets. We urge residents to report any ASB in the area to Humberside Police via 101.


Local officers have been conducting high visibility patrols in the area and anyone caught engaging in such activities will be dealt with jointly with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.  We have also met with local councilors to discuss the ongoing issues in the area.

Throughout September  and October  we  have been been holding street surgeries in Snaith. These have been high visibility patrols starting at the  fire station in the Market place. Along with the ward councilors and the ASB Officer Nikki Moulton, we have been targeting ASB hot spot areas and speaking to residents about their concerns.  We have been successful in identifying some of the youths causing issues and are dealing with them via our ASB process. On Thursday 17th October 2019 between 18:00-19:30 hours  Nikki Moulton was   at the Snaith Town council offices on Market Place. We discussed concerns from residents  regarding ASB in the area and how we can help to reduce this. We also discussed with town council clerks Nicola Russell and Vicky Whiteley how to report ASB and how we deal with offenders through the ASB process.

The next street surgeries in Snaith are on the following dates:

  • Friday 22nd November 2019 18:00-20:00 hours

Please feel free to join us.

We are also in the process of finding a suitable location for the teenagers  to gather  on an evening.  There is currently no youth club in Snaith and after talking to the youths this is something they would like and will help to get them off the streets with the dark nights looming. If anyone knows of some where suitable within the town centre then please let us know.

Bourn Mill Balk play park  Snaith

We have been informed by the council that there has been littering , broken bottles and what appears to be vomit in the park, This is happening on a regular basis. The park is in the process of being cleaned and we are patrolling the area on a regular basis. If anyone has any information on who the offenders are please contact the council with their  details so  positive action can be taken.


During the  30th, 31st October and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th November patrols were carrying out high visibility patrols to reduce Anti Social Behavior in the Snaith area. During bonfire and Halloween the calls for service increase as ASB rises. Though we want people to go out and enjoy themselves we will not tolerate behavior that causes Harassment , alarm and distress to others and will deal with these people accordingly. Please ring up on 101 the non emergency number if you are experiencing any incidents that are effecting you.


We attended the Remembrance parade at Snaith Priory this year before heading towards Pollington to also lay a wreath there.  A always this  was very well attended and it was nice to be out and about among the community paying our respects.




Snaith High School

Last week Nikki Moulton the ASB officer from EYRC attended Snaith High School and spoke to  year 8 pupils about  Anti Social Behaviour and the process they use in partnership  with us to tackle this. Hopefully this will see a reduction in complaints especially coming up for the festive period and darker nights when historically this kind of behavior tends to increase.
