Subscribe to Blog via Email

Are you aware that you can subscribe to be automatically notified when a new post is added to the website? If you receive this notification by email then well done, you are already subscribed!

I noticed that very few people are subscribed (compared to the number of people that have registered a login id) possibly because the feature was not in the most obvious place.

It has now been moved to the Home page in the RPRA Updates section and hopefully more visible. So go ahead and subscribe, and you will receive automatic emails whenever anything is posted, such as news items, meeting minutes etc.

(There is also an unsubscribe link in the email in case you wish to change your mind!)

Subscribing to receive email notifications is separate and different to registering a user id to give access to the protected parts of the web site.

Fund Raising for Cancer Research UK

Last year First Port and the Repton Park Residents Association agreed to open up the gates of Repton Park to help raise money for Cancer Research UK. Some of you will remember the event from last year, however for residents who have recently moved onto the park, the good news is that we were able to raise over £5,000! 

This was achieved by collecting money outside the gatehouse, selling cakes and having donation stations.

We will be repeating the event this year the week beginning Monday 17th July and continue throughout the course of that week.

OWL – Online Watch Link

Owl

The Development Manager recently met with Mark Glazer, the Chairman of Redbridge & London Neighbourhood watch. This meeting included being introduced to an online watch system called OWL.

Owl is a means of passing information to you easier and more quickly than ever before.

Owl is a community engagement system that has been developed across various parts of Wales and England over many years. It helps communities prevent and detect crime, support one another and be more aware of what is happening in their area.

In short, it compliments what many have always done as watch members/good neighbours, but introduces modern technology and communications to make life easier and simpler for all involved. Messages, including crime alerts and timely crime prevention advice are sent out in an instant, sometimes within half an hour of a crime occurring. The system allows messages to be received by email, mobile phone and telephone contact is also available. For more information please visit http://www.owl.co.uk/

This is a great communications tool, and all residents are encouraged to take register an interest. The Development Manager will be speaking to the RPRA about this in more detail as there are ways of setting up specific community services via OWL.

The Development Manager is also arranging for an OWL Leaflet to be drop
