RESIDENTS AT WITS END OVER WEEKLY ONSLAUGHT

Vandalism or anti-social behaviour, whatever people like to call it has always been a problem in Armagh. However, most would agree that with the increase in drug abuse that the level of vandalism and the destructiveness of those involved has sadly increased.

Over the years different locations have come to the fore and the residents living in these areas have borne the brunt of the activities of young people high on drink, drugs and more increasingly now both. Areas like ‘the tunnel’, ‘college field’, ‘Callan river footbridge’ are but three to mention. Added to this list has to be Sherry’s Field Sports Complex where for several years now there has been an ongoing problem with vandalism and general anti-social behaviour. This has steadily grown to the extent now where local residents are literally at their wits end over it. Weekend parties lasting into the early hours, underage drinking, drug taking and drug sellers, destruction of property, increased noise levels and physical attacks are a regular fact of life in this area.

To combat this local resident representatives and political representatives have come together to see what can be done. A number of meetings with the local council, PCSP and the PSNI have been held at which a series of proposals aimed at combating this weekly onslaught on the community have been put forward. These include increased street lighting, improved fencing, additional CCTV, better reporting of incidents either through the 101 number of Crimestoppers 0800 555 111, increased police patrols.

What has clearly emerged is that this problem is none that cannot be solved without a combined approach by the community, statutory bodies and police authority. For the local residents of Callan St, Convent Road, Cathedral Road, Edward Street a solution cannot come quickly enough.

Local community volunteers in Defribillator training

defribillator course Pearse Ogs 210215Local community activists recently took part in a Defibrillator training course delivered through the West Armagh Consortium and NRPB’s growing communities’ programme. The course took place in the Pearse Og Social Club on February 21st. All participants passed with flying colours. It is intended to roll out this project further with the provision of defibrillators for local community houses.

Consortium chairman ,Stephen Fields praised the activists who took part in the course adding ,” The feedback that we received is that those who took part found the course very interesting and informative. Even though it is the sort of training that no one hopes to have to employ it is nonetheless important that local activists are equipped with the necessary skills.”

Defribillatort Course genertaes considerable interest

images/2015/defribillatorimg_040

The defibrillator training being organised for 21st February has generated a considerable amount of interest. Initially we had envisaged tracing up community volunteers in from our respective areas with a view to acquiring defibrillators for the community houses.

It would appear that the course containing 16 places will be oversubscribed .We have therefore decided to continue accepting names and if there are enough for a second course we will run one in the near future. Therefore, for anyone who has put their name forward and doesn’t mage to get a place on the February 21st course we hope that you can bear with us.
