When we all last met in the courtyard,we spoke of hosting a Crime Prevention evening for the whole community rather than one estate at a time.I have now secured the Rugby club on Tuesday 19th October.The start time is 8:30pm.
Joining us on the night will be Sgt Dean Kierns ( county crime prevention officer ), our local community garda officers, members of the Joint Policing committee,The Mayor of Navan ( Cllr Phil Brennan ) and also an invitation has gone out to all our local Councillor’s and T.D’s to attend our public meeting regarding this serious issue.There will also be local media coverage on the night.
I am asking all J.A.C.C. members and Chairs of each resident association to spread the word in their own estates in regard to this meeting.To try and ensure a good attendance from their own estates. If you could pop info through all letter boxes,community pages,hang notice in front of estates to advertise night.I cannot express enough how important it is to have a good attendance on the night.It will be our only opportunity to have all relevant groups under the one roof together.
The best way to tackle crime is to work together as a community and to speak directly to the people who can make a difference.I feel it is important that the residents in our community should be heard.NOW IS YOUR CHANCE.Johnstown needs a sub garda station and I hope to high light this need on the night.
Please let me know your thoughts on this issue.
Chair of J.A.C.C
Welcome to your September Edition of your Association Newsletter.
A lot has happened since the last newsletter and a lot more has still to come.
What has happened so far?
We have held a fantastic fun day for the children and the Clean Team has played a blinder when it came to preparing the estate for the Pride of Place competition in which they did us proud.
The results of the Pride of Place should be posted in the December Newsletter.
We are organizing our new neighbourhood watch team which should help to make the estate feel that little bit more secure. There will be a meeting with the Gardaí to discuss the running of this in the near future.
We are going to launch our new website with new features.
We are going to organize text messaging to inform residents of meetings etc.
We are in constant contact with Andrews regarding outstanding issues in the estate and to be fair to them they seem to be willing to help out as much as possible.
They have filled in the shores that were not covered and cleaned up the estate.
They have applied for and been granted planning permission for the Ramps which will be fantastic in slowing down all the traffic that seems to want to use the estate as a racing course.
They are also going to consult the residents directly affected by the substation to see how eliminate the problem this is causing. This should be happening in the next week or so.
There have been several meetings with the JACC on issues such as Youth Issues, The New National Primary School, Funding, Pedestrian Lights and the Wall between the Abbey and Our Selves.
Our New WEB Page is www.athlumneywood.ie this is still under construction at present but will soon be up and running.
The next residents meeting will be in October.
