Ewell Downs News – Special Update


Following a committee meeting last night, this is a special bulletin to advise you of a few important items:

Drug Dealing close to Nescot

There is a great deal of concern over this matter which was published in our last Bulletin.  This item was fully discussed and it was agreed that we should proceed as follows:

  • The councillors have a meeting with Jackie Elkins, the police Inspector for Epsom & Ewell North on Thursday of next week.  They will be bringing this up for action as a matter of importance.  Should this attempt not achieve any results they have confirmed that they will go higher up the police chain.
  • The Association is sending a letter to Frances Rutter, the CEO at Nescot, pointing out, among other things, the safeguarding policies in relation to the students under their care and asking

a) what action has been taken to protect them and

b) what action is proposed?

  • We shall be in touch with the developers of Sycamore Gardens as very soon they will be opening the pedestrian entrance opposite the area where the dealing is taking place.
  • We will keep you informed of any progress in this matter – we are determined to get some action, so please come forward with any ideas you may have to help.

Street Lighting – a result!

Following pressure, particularly from our Surrey County Councillors, John Beckett and Eber Kington, the street lighting will now stay on until 1 am and then it will go off until 5 am.  This is something that many of you have contacted us about and we are pleased to say that this will take effect from Thursday night.  There may be a few lights that have yet to be tweaked but everything should be in line by Sunday night. They are requesting that on New Year’s Eve the lights remain on all night so that revellers can get home safely.

Assault involving Nescot students

Can you assist local officers investigating an assault in East Ewell?

Police were made aware of an incident involving NESCOT students which occurred on Thursday, 16 November 2017, in an alleyway between NESCOT and Ewell East Rail Station. It appears that this incident took place before 3pm however the exact time is unknown.

Video was captured of the incident which showed the victims being assaulted by a male who slapped the two males to the face and body with an object, whilst shouting and threatening them. It is believed the video has come from an unidentified third party and the footage does not identify the victims.

If you have any information about the incident or are aware of who the victims might be please contact Surrey Police on 101 or report online at Surrey Police Contact quoting reference number 45170129390.

Finally – super news

The little tri-coloured Sheltie missing from a garden in Longdown Lane North has been found in a garden in Walton on the Hill and is now safely back with its owners.  Thank you everyone who has been looking out for him.  Such a relief for all
