Travellers Leave Hayes Way

Final update about travellers by Hayes Way (Bulletin 3 of 3).

We are pleased to confirm that all five Travellers have now left the place they occupied opposite Lidl, Charlton Hayes, Patchway. South Gloucestershire officers along with Avon & Somerset Constabulary have done outstanding work in resolving the situation amicably. Officers had already provided black bags to the travellers and visited them periodically. 

“I am proud of our officers who dealt with this situation professionally and brought it to amicable conclusion in this challenging time.”

Jo Buddharaju, Councillor – Charlton & Cribbs
AFTER: Opposite Lidl by Hayes Way after Travellers vacated the place.

“It is good news for Charlton Hayes and Patchway that the issue didn’t drag long. I commend SGC and Avon & Somerset Constabulary officers for taking swift actions. I would also like to thank our local member of parliament Jack Lopresti, MP for taking up this case.”

Sanjay Shambhu, Councillor – Charlton & Cribbs
BEFORE: Travellers opposite Lidl by Hayes Way, Charlton Hayes, Patchway

“I am pleased to welcome this development, and I thank all officers who had to get involved in this situation. As I said previously, travellers shouldn’t have put themselves in this situation and should have followed government guidelines.”

Brian Hopkinson, Councillor – Charlton & Cribbs.
