Earlier this week I sent out a message to all members concerning an incident involving a young woman whose Mother went into PVL and Wellesley in search of anyone who might have witnessed the incident. It happened on Thursday last week at or near Pepper Park at around 5.45.
Since then I have heard nothing more, either from the student, her Mother or the police.
The 17 year old student apparently walked from Wickes down Victoria Way, Victoria Gardens and Albert Drive to the entrance to the park, where it seems she was confronted by a white male who may have been hiding in the bushes. The student managed to escape and run off towards the town centre and home, but not before she had been terrified by this person. The police have been informed.
My request to you is that you do not delete any recent CCTV footage you may have which looks onto Victoria Way, Victoria Gardens or Albert Drive, as it may be useful to police in their investigations into this unfortunate incident.
Of course it’s possible that you saw the incident, in which case you should call the police on their non-emergency number.
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
