Just three months since our inauguration, and we have made an excellent start with all the team having completed their allocation of patrols. Patrols have been on Fridays, 7.30 pm to midnight. We did a Saturday patrol in July, as it was Ladies day at Gosforth Park Race Course, from 7.30 pm to 1.00 am.
The reception we have received has been very good. We have been welcomed by Door Staff, Residents, Students, Police, Metro Customer Service Officers, and local Businesses.
We also cover Acorn Road, The Metro Station at West Jesmond, the west side of the Metro down to the School and back to Osborne Road
We are getting used to the way taxis just turn round on Osborne Road (an accident waiting to happen) and are concerned at the amount of broken and left over glasses and bottles we find on the pavements. Later in the year we plan to do a litter pick one Saturday, including sweeping up small pieces of glass that are everywhere.
