Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Operation Blitz this weekend was conducted by PCSOs Crouch, Cotterill and Brian-Davis.

Patrols started around the Beachy Head area of Eastbourne ensuring that the public were adhering to the COVID-19 guidelines.

We were then called to a report of a gathering of vehicles in the Waterfront area of the harbour. On this occasion, words of advice were given to those there regarding the guidelines of COVID-19.

Shortly after attending the previous job, we were called to a report of a resident having a party in their campervan. On this occasion it turned out not to be the case, however, we still used the opportunity to engage and educate the resident on the guidelines.

Over the course of the evening, patrols were conducted along the seafront, Hampden Park and Shinewater area. On each visit we are happy to report that no concerns were raised and most areas were quiet.

During the course of the evening we received two phone calls on the blitz phone. The first, was for some advice in reference to some COVID-19 advice for something which occurred earlier in the evening. The second was in reference to a small gathering in Victoria Baptist Church, which at the time we were unable to attend due to other commitments.
