The South Acton Safer Neighbourhood ward Panel met this month, and there has been an increase in burglaries and stolen cars. The ward team is currently under strength by one PC.
|Crime||Sep-Nov17||Jun-Aug 17||Feb-May 17|
|Theft from Motor Vehicle||15||16||21|
|Theft of motor Vehicle||19||11||8|
The increase in burglaries is in part due to a change in the way crimes are categorised. They now include theft from sheds and attempted burglaries. So for Sep to Nov, they include:
A cycle was stolen from a bin store
A cycle was stolen from a garage in Uxbridge Road on two separate occasions
A log cabin was entered
A cycle was stolen from a garden shed
Property was stolen from an underground car park
A cycle was stolen from a communal storage area

The Goodlet Diaries are being serialised on the Ealing News Extra Website. Alexandra Goodlet lived in Birch Grove and Granville Gardens.
From the introduction, which can be found here.
“They had moved to 48 Birch Grove, Acton, 1918-1929 and from 1930-1940 lived in part of 30 Granville Gardens, Ealing. Goodlet kept a diary from 1933, but the first portions do not survive. The Ealing years which do, for 1934-1940, were transcribed by his youngest brother and presented to the library; the originals are held at Sussex University Library. Alexander briefly ran a model shop but during the years chronicled by his diary was chiefly unemployed save for a brief job as a clerk at Acton Town Hall in 1936 and then as a fire watcher at Dagenham in 1939-1940.”
