Maintenance Charge - Cheques
A reminder that cheques for the yearly maintenance charge should be made payable to "Martlesham Heath Householders Ltd". The bank is rejecting cheques payable to "MHHL".
Payments can be made in person on Saturday 10th October between 10am and 12 noon at the Martlesham Heath Pavilion.
Vandalsim at MH Control Tower site
Between Sunday 12th and Wednesday 16th of July Vandals attacked the entrance to the Bomb Shelter and the Anderson Shelter in the area behind the Tower. They stripped the safety netting from around the Shelter entry steps and painted Graffiti onto the Anderson Shelter. As we know children passing to and from school like to run into this area we would warn parents that it is unsafe at present to let children in the area on their own. We are working to repair the damage but as we are a volunteer organisation this may take some time. If anyone around the area can introduce us to "Xaser" the "artist" we would be very grateful!

Wire stretched across cycle paths
Many Martlesham residents cycle through Kesgrave, so be aware of this warning from Suffolk Police.
Police are warning cyclists and pedestrians in the Kesgrave area to be vigilant as wire was found stretched across the cycle path, at head height, in Mead Drive in Kesgrave.
At around 8:30pm last night, Sunday 15 March, a member of the public discovered the wire stretched across the cycle path and a second piece was also discovered. A third piece of wire was then found across a footpath from Ropes Drive.
PC Simon Mortimer from the Kesgrave and District Safer Neighbourhood Team, said:
"This is an extremely dangerous and irresponsible thing to do, stretching wire across the paths at head height could cause serious injury to cyclists and pedestrians.
"We are appealing for anyone who has information about this mindless act to contact us to prevent further incidents and someone being injured.”
If you have any information about these incidents or those involved, please call the Kesgrave and District Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101 quoting reference WO/15/472, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
