Please see the update from Inspector Rob Bryan.
An update from RAF Northolt this afternoon, who report there will be extra flight activity during the night on Monday and Wednesday night/following morning ….
“RAF Northolt will have one of its periodic checks of its flight safety radar systems on 2-3 Feb 15 from 11pm to 4am and again on 3-4 Feb 15 from 11pm to 4am. Only one aircraft will be operating from RAF Northolt throughout the period, making repeated approaches to the runway. The first night will calibrate the Instrument Landing System to Runway 25 (approaching from the east over Ruislip) and the second night will calibrate the Precision Approach Radar to Runway 07 (approaching from the west over Ickenham). These calibration flights are an essential safety assurance process and have to take place when Heathrow is closed.”
As always, the calibration flights will be subject to acceptable weather conditions and may be rescheduled if the weather is not suitable. RAF Northolt apologises for any disruption caused to local residents and appreciates the continued support and understanding of the local community in ensuring that the Station operates to the highest safety standards.”
At the Quarterly meeting last night Sid Jackson promised to send a letter outlining our objection and frustration with Sainsbury’s intention to launch a Judicial Review again the ARLA development which will include an ASDA supermarket.
This he has done.
The letter can be found here: Sainsburys letter January 2015
We encourage residents to write letters of objection to Sainsbury’s to let them know their feelings. Would love to know your feelings on this on our Facebook page.
A write-up on the meeting last night can be found just here in the online version of the Gazette.
Police have discovered an iPod nano attached to a cash machine being used as a spy camera to steal PINs from unsuspecting members of the public.
Thieves had taken the small iPod, which is an old version that is no longer sold, and used its built-in camera to spy on the cash machine’s keypad. It had been crudely shrouded in a small plastic box and attached to the cash machine with sticky tape.
It also included a small plastic piece attached over the slot where cards are inserted, which was designed to snare bank cards and stop them from being ejected.
This would allow fraudsters to return once the customer had given up and retrieve the card themselves, which they could then use because the camera captured the associated PIN.
Crafty devices designed to steal your credit card information are getting increasingly compact and difficult to spot, with the latest “razor thin” models able to slip totally out of sight inside the card slot.
It looks likely that Sainsbury will launch a judicial review which will cause delays in the building of the development at the ARLA site . Vice-Chair Sid Jackson has commented on this.
Plenty to discuss at the next quarterly meeting next Wednesday! How do we respond? Come and have your say.
The next quarterly meeting will take place on 21st January 2014, at the normal venue of St Mary’s Hall, Long Drive, South Ruislip at 8pm.
Minutes of the last October meeting can be found here.
We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Our latest from the Inspector Rob Bryan, direct from the email received. Please email the Inspector if you wish to receive this information directly :
I hope you have all had a pleasant Christmas and have an equally enjoyable New Year. Our Festive Open Day at Ruislip Police Station was a great success again this year with over 300 children and their families in attendance to see Santa and many other treats. Organising the open day is a labour of love undertaken by the volunteers who work at Ruislip Police Station. Without them it simply would not happen. One of our volunteers, Sandra, was rewarded for her hard work on this event by receiving the David Brough Community Safety Award. Very well done.
Whilst on the subject of volunteers, I wan to acknowledge the brilliant job they do opening the police stations at Ruislip and Northwood for additional hours above what the police do. But their numbers are dwindling which makes it harder to keep those front offices open. If you want to volunteer with the police, or know of anyone who does, please drop me an e-mail and I will ensure your details are passed on.
Designated Ward Officers:
I am often told that the bobby on the beat is rarely seen anymore. The Local Police Model which replaced the Safer Neighbourhoods Model a few years ago has reduced the number of officers on each ward. That is a fact that will not change. But it should not have completely wiped out our local visibility so it is a concern to me to hear that my officers are not seen all that often. I can assure you that our Borough Commander, Nick Downing, is keen for that visibility to exist and he ensures your Dedicated Ward Officers are not abstracted for other work. There have been a few changes of personnel recently so this is a good opportunity for me to let you know who your DWOs are:
Cavendish – PC Stuart Nagle and PCSO John Dickens (email@example.com)
Eastcote & East Ruislip – PC Sharon Brown and PCSO Gemma Robinson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Harefield – PC John Foley and PCSO Hermant Parihar (email@example.com)
Ickenham – PC Rebecca Lord and PCSO Jo Witt (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Manor – PC Louise Ball and PCSO Gurbinder Sandhu (email@example.com)
Northwood – PC Dave Bell and PCSO John Usher (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Northwood Hills – PC Max Christmas and PCSO Ricky Soler (email@example.com)
South Ruislip – PC Allan Webster and PCSO Anna Hegarty (firstname.lastname@example.org)
West Ruislip – PC Jan McCormack and PCSO Paul Brighton (email@example.com)
2 PCs are currently sick or on light duties. Where that is the case I have put the PCSOs e-mail address above.
I encourage you all to e-mail your local DWO and let them know about local issues, or just let them know that it would be good to see them in your area. They do patrol and may be able to tell you when they were last in your area. Alternatively, your e-mail may prompt them into visiting your area.
Neighbourhood Watch Newsletter – burglary statistics:
I have been concerned about the “lag” in burglary stats that are presented on the monthly NHW newsletter. I am working with Hillingdon NHW to make these numbers a bit more relevant. Instead of presenting the last two months figures, I hope to be able to present the last thee or four weeks figures (prior to going to print). It is a work in progress so watch this space and please let me have your feedback once it is up and running.
