LEARNING FROM A SCHOOL VISIT

I recently went to a local primary school to meet the teachers who will be looking after my son’s education from September onwards. I was very impressed with the set up and the attitude of the teachers. One of the things that stuck in my mind was the head teacher’s method of ensuring that the children learned whilst at school. She said that the there were three keys to learning.
1. Repetition. 2. Rewards or praise. 3. Enjoyment.
So here goes folks, pin your ears back.
NEVER LEAVE ANYTHING OF VALUE IN YOUR CAR
NEVER LEAVE ANYTHING OF VALUE IN YOUR CAR
NEVER LEAVE ANYTHING OF VALUE IN YOUR CAR
NEVER LEAVE ANYTHING OF VALUE IN YOUR CAR
If you do this I will say you are wonderful when I see you. Try it. You will of course continue to enjoy using whatever you have that has not been stolen

 

GOOD NEWS – THE BIG LAD IS STAYING!

Since the Neighbourhood Policing Module was adopted here in the Tisbury community area we have been under the impression that PC Mark Littlewood would be leaving us to police the streets of Warminster. However, we always thought that he should remain here on the Tisbury Beat. Today I have been told by Inspector Steve Douglass (the boss) that he has now been made a permanent part of the Tisbury Neighbourhood Policing team. This is outstanding news and effectively there are now three Community Police Officers dedicated to policing the Tisbury and Mere area. We will be joined in the middle of July by two Community Support Officers so there will then be five of us. In real terms there will be a much larger uniformed presence on the streets.

 

TISBURY COMMUNITY SAFETY PARTNERSHIP

The Tisbury Community Safety Partnership is a statutory group that meets every three months here in Tisbury to discuss and decide on how our lives can be better in the Tisbury Community. Recently the meetings have been very poorly attended. This group is a vital cog in the machinery that makes things happen out here and can be a very loud voice when the community requires action. At the last meeting only 2 of the 16 parishes were represented, Hindon and Fovant. I find this slightly puzzling. Either everyone else feels that things are so good out here that they can not be improved upon or there is a wave of apathy stretching from the A303 down to Tollard Royal including all points in between. I don’t believe either is the case. If you are interested or feel that you can contribute come along and represent your village. Parish Councils – come on, get on board. I’ll buy some biscuits!

The next meeting is at 4pm on Tuesday the 11th September 2007 in The Elizabeth Hall, Park Road, Tisbury.

How do you contact us?

E-mail is best – mark.steele@wiltshire.pnn.police.uk or Richard.salter@wiltshire.pnn.police.uk. However I appreciate that lots of people don’t have access to e-mail. You could drop a note in at Tisbury or Mere Police Station using the old fashioned pen and paper method or you could try phoning us on 0845 408 7000 extension 746815 (Tisbury) or 749817 (Mere). The only problem with phoning is that we do not sit in the Police Station perched on the edge of our seats waiting for the phone to ring so it could be that the phone will just ring. If you do ring 0845 408 7000 you could also ask the person answering to send us an e-mail asking that we contact you. It’s your choice. Remember, if you don’t tell us what the problems are we have no chance of solving them.
