Hammersmith and Fulham Council has announced details of Crime Summit 2011, which will be hosted by Chelsea Football Club at Stamford Bridge on Saturday March 5.

The summit is free to all borough residents and includes refreshments and a buffet lunch.

Under the banner 'your priority, our goal'  the 2011 summit - the fifth to be held in our borough - will feature four themed workshops covering anti-social behaviour, environmental crime, drugs and alcohol and staying safe.

The workshops provide local residents with a platform to air their views to the people who patrol the borough’s streets day in, day out.

In addition, there will be short presentations from senior police officers, including borough commander, Detective Chief Superintendent Kevin Hurley.

David Millar, Chairman of the Neighbourhood Watch Borough Association, says: "The Crime Summit is very useful but we need it to become even more focused on the day-to-day reality of crime on our streets if it is going to benefit residents even further.

" For our part we can help by being more proactive in our streets and communities, particularly in reporting anti-social behaviour and crimes affecting homes and cars."

Following the event all crime summit attendees will be sent feedback on the key issues raised during the workshops and these priorities will then be tackled by police and council officers throughout the year.

Cllr Greg Smith says: " We pioneered this consultative approach in H&F and the summit has become invaluable in understanding residents’ priorities.

"We will be in full listening mode again and I want even more residents to come forward and tell us their concerns."

If you would like to book a place or want more information email crime.summit@lbhf.gov.uk and provide your name and contact details or call 020 8753 2359.
