FLY-TIPPING: The incidence of fly-tipping around the car park behind the shops is increasing. Two recent events included asphalt from a roofing job and a ripped-out kitchen. Please keep your eyes open for any unusual activity. The advice on Lewes District Council’s website is as follows: To help us with prevention and enforcement, we ask members of the public to report incidents of fly tipping. Where possible please take note of the following, but do not approach offenders and do not touch or move fly-tipped materials: the date and time the incident occurred; the model, make, registration number and colour of vehicle used by the offender; a description of the offender(s); a description of fly-tipped materials and their quantity. Incidents of fly-tipping can be reported online at http://lewesdc.firmstep.com/ default.aspx/Render Form/?F.Name=c3XNSD9nee6 or by telephoning customer services on 01273 471600. We may wish to prosecute the person responsible for the fly-tipping, if this is the case we may ask whether you would be willing to give evidence. Please also let the chairman of the Ringmer Shopkeepers Association have the details.
