The surrender runs from today 13/11 until Sunday 26/11 and is part of a national initiative run by the National Ballistics Intelligence Service (NABIS). It aims to reduce the number of illegally held firearms within our communities.

Each firearm handed into us is one less that could fall into the hands of criminals.

Whether it is an old family heirloom that has been stored away for years, a former military weapon or an unwanted firearm which was previously legally owned - all can be handed in to your local police station, safe in the knowledge that they will be disposed of safely.

We will also accept replica firearms, air weapons, BB guns, imitation firearms, antique guns, component parts and other ballistic items.

During the fortnight firearms licence holders are also being encouraged to consider the surrender of weapons they no longer have any use for.

Chief Inspector Emma Baillie, Head of Armed Response for the Joint Operations Unit for Hampshire and Thames Valley, said: “This is your chance to safely dispose of any guns or ammunition you no longer want but don’t know what to do with.

“Surrender them now and we can dispose of them safely, making sure that they do not fall into the hands of criminals.

“We know that the consequences of firearms or replica firearms falling into the wrong hands can be fatal and can cause real fear within our communities.

“They also have the potential of being used against our own officers who could find themselves confronted with someone wielding a weapon in public.

“While crimes involving firearms in Thames Valley are rare, we know that every firearm poses a potential threat if they are not licensed and stored safely.

“That is why we are offering this opportunity to safely hand in your unwanted firearms.

“The fight against gun crime is stronger than ever. We take all reports of incidents involving firearms extremely seriously and robust action will be taken against anyone who commits a firearms related offence.”

During the two-week campaign, those surrendering firearms will not face prosecution for the illegal possession upon surrender and can remain anonymous.

However, this is not an amnesty and if further examination of a surrendered firearm reveals a link to a crime, this will be investigated.

We are asking anyone who is unsure about an item they have to call us on 101 to get advice on what they should do. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Historic ordnance should not be moved or handed in to any stations, if you think you have any items like this, please call us on 101 for advice.

Where is the Planning Application for this 'Doggy Day Care'?

I see the Banner advertising the establishment was well placed out flapping in the wind blocking visual sight for traffic !

I see the fence has gone up all around (Nice Urbanisation going on there !) and some sort of Terrapin Hut strategically placed around the corner....

Slowly , Slowly ear marked for houses... closing Cookham with Maidenhead.

Explains why long lane had the hedge row scrubbed back to 'widen' visual impact .. so not a traffic concern in the future...

I have heard and seen a lot of selfie shots, most of which are on the end of a pole. What I have come up with is to mount the camera on a tripod, this leaving both hands free to handle the subject or item being discussed. So turn up your sound.

Residents will soon benefit from an enhanced parking enforcement offer after the council appointed a new partner to help keep the borough moving.

The Royal Borough has awarded a contract for provision of parking enforcement on and off street and the operation and management of the council’s car parks to NSL Ltd.

The council agreed, back in 2016, to explore alternative options for delivering the service to meet the increased demand on parking services and improve resilience during large events.

Parking enforcement will now be delivered under a new, more cost-effective operating model, including the ability to better enforce resident parking schemes.

Cllr Carwyn Cox, cabinet member for environmental services (including parking), said: “We have looked long and hard at how best to meet the demand for parking enforcement in the borough and are confident this new partnership with NSL Ltd will lead to a more responsive service.

“Residents and visitors want to know that they can park safely and reasonably in the borough and by delivering parking services differently we will be able to continue to make that happen.

“As with many other service areas we have sought the model best allowing us to provide residents with an excellent service and good value for money.”

Mark Hoskin, Managing Director of NSL, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to support the Royal Borough’s work in delivering responsive and effective parking services.

“We look forward to building a strong partnership that will deliver improved outcomes for the benefit of all members of the local community.”

The contract, due to begin in December, will initially run for two years with a number of options to extend this subject to delivery.

NSL Ltd was selected following a competitive procurement process.

A £1.3 million investment into an improved state-of-the-art CCTV system will help keep residents in the borough safer.

The new wireless system will be monitored all day, every day, throughout the year, enhancing coverage across the area.

Working alongside Thames Valley Police the new system has been designed to help keep people safe while supporting policing across the borough.

Cllr Carwyn Cox, cabinet member for environmental services (inc. parking), said: “This investment is one of a number of measures we are taking to make our borough safer.

“We want to support the police and partner organisations in protecting our residents, businesses and visitors.

“The existing CCTV system is reaching the end of its serviceable life after more than 20 years and our replacement will be a significant upgrade.”

The investment follows a detailed review of the existing facilities by an external company and fits into wider work to improve public security across the borough.

This new system will enhance preventative measures already taken, including installing CCTV cameras in Hines Meadow, Broadway, Stafferton Way and Victoria Street multi-storey car parks’ stairwells.

Hostile vehicle mitigation barriers in Windsor and a developing strategy to tackle anti-social behaviour in the town centre will also help improve safety.

Superintendent Bhupinder Rai, LPA commander for Windsor and Maidenhead, said: “We have worked with the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead on the new CCTV programme.

“We believe the new system will bring with it increased opportunities for crime prevention and detection. It forms an integral part of our ongoing partnership work to keep those who live in, work in and visit our borough safe.”

The investment will bring improvements to the control room, cameras and infrastructure.

The proposal to begin looking for a provider to create the new system was approved by the Royal Borough’s cabinet earlier this year.

The new wireless CCTV system is expected to be operational by the end of 2018.
