The Neighbourhood Team have been monitoring, and reports have been received, of anti-social behaviour and criminal damage in the vicinity of the Skate Park, the Somer Centre and the Town Park.
This is a priority which we will need to continue to monitor as such as the weather improves towards summer and the area becomes more populated.

Following the damage caused to street furniture in the area of the Somer Centre in Midsomer Norton, three offenders were identified by the local policing team. As part of a community resolution the three individuals completed a litter pick in the same location of the offence last night supervised by the local beat team. From conversations with the three individuals they showed that they were regretful for their actions and that the process has given them a greater respect for the local area and it’s use in future.
