Access to Wilstead Woods

Residents of Wilstead have Permissive Access to Wilstead Woods and this is being endangered by off road and quad bikes being ridden through the woods and along the Carriage Drive.

If you know who is doing this please ask them to stop.

If they don't there is a real possibility that public access to the woods will be stopped. The current permission is for pedestrian access only.

If you see anyone riding a motorbike or quad bike (anything with a noisy engine) going into the woods please report it to the Police by phoning 101 and let the Parish Council know.

Reporting Incidents to the Police

There are a few ways to report incidents and information to the Police:

The first is 999 or 101 depending on the immediacy of the situation.

The police have an online reporting function.

There is also CrimeStoppers for anyone who wants to give information without providing their details. 

The local community team can be contacted by email. Please can this only be used to get in touch with the team or to let them know of any events taking place, as this isn't to be used for reporting of crime or intelligence.
