The public is advised that the Forestry Section of the Agriculture & Natural Resources Division (ANRD) will be undertaking tree surgery work on the Ficus tree at Pilling Primary School, Jamestown, tomorrow, Wednesday 30 August 2017, between 1pm and 3.30pm.
The public and drivers should be aware that these works will also be taking place outside of the school wall, therefore there might be some slight delays in this area. Signs will be in place.
The public is thanked in advance for their co-operation and the ANRD Forestry Section apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.
As part of their Neighbourhood Policing Programme, St Helena Police Officers will continue their ‘beat surgeries’ in various places around the Island throughout September 2017.
These surgeries are designed to take place in busy areas where it is easier for more people to attend (see dates & times below).
A questionnaire will also be available so people can tell the Police what concerns them most in their area. This will help the Police identify patterns which will then help them to develop a problem solving plan.
