I love Brickfields and enjoy writing this blog, sometimes lightheartly, but on occasions it’s important for visitors to be aware of some dangers. I recently received a letter from the Community Neighbourhood Safety Team (Police) and I’m led to believe this letter was posted to all local residents living near to Brickfields LNR, warning of the dangers of Motor Scramble Bikes & Quad Bikes being used on the site. These Motor vehicles are NOT ALLOWED on Brickfields or in Franks Wood, It is totally unlawful. I have been informed the Police now have the power to confiscate the motor vehicles for those persistent offenders.
I have been given details of how to contact the The Safer Neighbourhood Team (Police) & The Parks Protection Service (L.B.H) ;
1. Safer Neighbourhood Team – Station Office 0208 7212578  Mobile; 07876391553

2. Parks Protection Service number Direct to Officers on call Mobile 07904 805872

Due to several complaints from local residents to both the Police & The Council Parks Service, both of the services are now taking the situation very seriously and are acting accordingly. The Park Service have now issued two Scrambling Bikes themselves to their officers to patrol the larger Open spaces in Havering and the Police ( C.S.O’s ) visit Brickfields daily at different times. Both of these services are doing an excellent job and can do even more with support from the public.

Brickfields is a designated Nature Reserve and a Public Park  with children’s amenities , where children can play without fear of road traffic and where people can enjoy the tranquil surroundings of nature,so don't stay away, go and enjoy the place.

If you do observe any unlawful or anti social behaviour while visiting Brickfields DO NOT enter into a confrontational situation with the alleged offenders, but contact the professionals !

Hopefully I can update Brickfields with more pleasant news soon, Bye for now.
