Residents invited to Blue Lagoon community safety event

Milton Keynes City Council is inviting residents to a community safety day on Friday (25 August) to learn about water safety and upgrades made to the Blue Lagoon nature reserve in Bletchley.

Colleagues from Thames Valley Police, Bucks Fire & Rescue Service and Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Council will join the city council between 1pm-4pm to answer questions and introduce new safety measures at the Blue Lagoon.

Recent improvements include new CCTV cameras, litter bins and regular security patrols. Following reports of anti-social behaviour at the Blue Lagoon, MK City Council worked with partners to introduce the upgrades to tackle the issues and create a more welcoming environment for visitors.

Bucks & Fire Rescue Service will be demonstrating how to use the newly installed throw lines on the day. Residents will have the opportunity to take part in the demonstrations and learn about life-saving techniques that could potentially make a difference in emergency situations.

Attendees will also be able to learn about the work currently underway to create a new walking and cycling route connecting Newton Leys to the Blue Lagoon nature reserve.

“This is a great opportunity for people to visit the Blue Lagoon to ask questions and raise issues, and for us to hear what’s important to the local community. We understand there’s been concerns about anti-social behaviour at the Blue Lagoon which is why we’ve installed new CCTV, litter bins and introduced security patrols in the area. We’ll continue to work with partners and the community to create a welcoming, vibrant and safe environment for everyone to enjoy. I’d strongly encourage people to come along.” - Cabinet Member for Public Realm and Community Safety, Cllr Lauren Townsend
