Police say they remain “very concerned” about missing Enderby man, David Noakes.

Searching continues and water searches are today (19 January) being carried out in the River Soar at Enderby in the search for Mr. Noakes.

The 78-year-old was last seen by his family at 10.25am on Tuesday 17 January in Trinity Road, Enderby.

He is known to frequent the Jubilee Park area. Searches have been made in and around the Park area, and the search continues today.

Please check outbuildings and sheds in rear gardens – David may have taken shelter there.

Public Spaces Protection Order success in Countesthorpe

A Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) introduced in Countesthorpe has proved a success and has been part of a reduction in anti-social behaviour.

The order came into force on 15 July 2016 for a period of six months, and was brought in to reduce the rising number of anti-social behaviour incidents reported to Leicestershire Police and Blaby District Council.

A multi-agency partnership operated during the PSPO, which included increased police patrols in the area and activities including sports sessions, boxing taster sessions, street based youth work and the BB19 Youth Bus.

Beat Officers noted a significant reduction in ASB incidents during the six-month period, including over the Halloween/Bonfire night period.

The positive impact of the order led to just four incidents being reported during the whole of November.

Councillor Iain Hewson, Portfolio Holder for Community Services, said:

“The PSPO was a measure which the multi-agency partnership felt necessary to make sure local residents felt safe in their village.

“Thanks to the Community Services team and Leicestershire Police the last six months have been a success for both authorities and residents of Countesthorpe.

“We know that the vast majority of young people are impeccably behaved, and the order ensured we were able to deal with those who were tarnishing the reputation of Countesthorpe youngsters.”

Inspector Dan Eveleigh, Neighbourhood Policing Area Commander for Hinckley and Blaby, said:

“This order has enabled us to reduce incidents involving a very small minority of young adults causing anti-social behaviour in Countesthorpe.

“We would especially like to thank the vast majority of young people who have followed the PSPO while it has been in place, and enjoyed spending time with friends outdoors without causing any disruption to the local residents.”

Leicestershire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Lord Willy Bach said:

“The multi-agency approach to addressing anti-social behaviour problems in the area has clearly been effective, and part of that approach was the introduction of the PSPO.

“On behalf of local residents I’m pleased to see the significant reduction in incidents and hope that sustainable solutions are now in place as we move forward.”

Residents of the district who want to report any incidents of anti-social behaviour can contact the police non-emergency number on 101.

Anonymous reports can also be made to Blaby District Council via 0116 272 7677 or www.blaby.gov.uk/asb.

Enderby becomes first Dementia Friendly surgery

Enderby Medical Centre has become the first in the area to pledge to become more accessible to people with dementia.

The Centre has become a supporter of the Blaby District Dementia Action Alliance, which aims to create a district with dementia friendly residents and buildings.

Staff at the medical centre attended a ‘Dementia Friends’ information session, learning about dementia and how they can become a community and environment that takes into account the needs of those living with dementia.

Changes to make a business or organisation more dementia friendly include replacing dark coloured mats in reception areas, improving access and signage and being aware of how noises can affect different individuals.

Councillor Sheila Scott, Portfolio Holder for Health and Leisure Services, said:

“We’re delighted that Enderby has volunteered to become a dementia friendly community.

“It only takes small changes to make a huge difference to people’s lives.

“We hope this is the first of many surgeries in the district to become a Dementia Friend and encourage all businesses to sign up to the community.”

To register interest in becoming a dementia friend e-mail leisure@blaby.gov.uk or call 0116 272 7703.

Further information can be found at www.dementiaaction.org.uk.
