Increase in patrols in the area being conducted at various times throughout the day on different days of the week.  There have been a few calls regarding youths causing ASB in the vicinity of the Theatre.  These groups have been identified and those involved have been spoken to in company with parents where necessary and letters sent home.  Patrols have continued however reports of problems seem to have stopped and the youths involved have not been seen in the location recently.

There have been a number of concerns raised by parents and staff at the Primary Schools along the Wells Road in Malvern.  This is particularly an issue around school pick up and drop off time wen there are more cars in the area and children and parents trying to navigate the traffic.
