 A message from a resident to Tony "This is just to let you know that overnight Sat.16/Sun.17 January someone went down Stafford Road trying doors of cars parked on drives.  From footprints in the snow, the culprit ran across lawns and over fences and walked up or down drives to get to neighbours, i.e. using the shortest route to get to and leave each drive.  I know this happened at four adjoining semis, including ours, as I saw the tracks (photo available if required).  I am mentioning this in case it may tie in with any other reports you may have had for the same period."

On Sun 17-Jan at Godolphin Close Ellesmere Park: We received reports of footprints in the snow on drive ways and vehicle car doors being tried.

It's  important to stipulate  that we have increased patrols in the area and the offenders will face the full consequences of their actions when we catch up with them.

Three Sisters declared nature reserve

Over the last two years the EPRA Committee have been working with officers of Salford City Council, the Salford Ranges and Natural England to establish the Three Sisters as a Local Nature Reserve (LNR).  Local Nature Reserves are for both people and wildlife. They are places with wildlife or geological features that are of special interest locally. They offer people special opportunities to study or learn about nature or simply to enjoy it.  

When David Jeffreys from Natural England visited the Three Sisters in May 2013 he was very impressed with the site, in particular the amount of use of the area by local residents.  Educational use of Local Nature Reserves is an important prerequisite to establishing an LNR.  During the visit, and quite unplanned, a group of students from the college came on to the Three Sisters with their tutor and began to undertake a survey of the wild life.  It could not have been more appropriate, even if we had planned the biology lesson on the Three Sisters to coincide with the visit of Natural England.  

We are pleased to report that the Local Authority has now designated the Three Sisters as a Local Nature Reserve.  A copy of the designation letter is here and a location map is here.  The LNR status will provide an additional level of protection for the Three Sisters and help in attracting funds to maintain the site in the future.
