I have been working with our envirocrime team and their equivalent in Hammersmith and Fulham to try to reign in the people who are messing up our streets with plastic sign boards tie-wrapped to lamposts. I have personally visited Bar 38 in Hammersmith twice in February to berate them about their signs but for the last three Fridays the running has been taken up by the Hammersmith Palais. Their posters appeared at the junction of South Ealing Road and Little Ealing Lane today and at just about every junction down South Ealing Road and back down the A4 into Hammersmith. I must have seen at least 50 of them during my drive to work and this is only a small sample of the total.
The picture above shows three posters at the junction of Bond Street and the Broadway, taken by Ricky Wright our envirocrime protection officer for Northfield. Two fixed penalty notice were issued by Ricky today to both the venue and the promoter of their club night. I have to say though that £50 penalties are not going to change this behaviour.
