South Holland is back to two Community Wardens as it welcomes an experienced new member to the beat.
Jason Farmer will be working alongside existing warden Rob Duckett, taking the place of David Rodwell who retired earlier in the year.
A South Holland District Council spokesman said the wardens “aim to address concerns around anti-social behaviour and community safety in the district, through enforcement, education and greater awareness, along with the signposting of vulnerable members of the community to targeted support.”
The wardens patrol across South Holland with the power to issue Fixed Penalty Notices and take enforcement action against those committing public space offences like littering, spitting and drinking alcohol.
Jason joins the council having spent two years with Peterborough Council working as an enforcement officer.
Coun Gary Taylor, South Holland District Council portfolio holder for communities and facilities, said: “We are delighted to welcome Jason to the team and are confident that he can continue the vital work the wardens are doing, having engaged with 5,258 residents, given 538 verbal warnings and issued 163 fixed penalty notices to date.
“I know that Jason is particularly interested in the educational aspect of the role, and I am looking forward to seeing their relationship with residents, community groups and partner organisations continue to grow.”
