Important News from South Yorkshire Police for City Centre Traders RE The ELD Activity this Weekend

6th June 2013

Dear Business Owner, English Defence League and United Against Fascism Information As you may already be aware, events involving both of the above groups will take place this Saturday, June 8th 2013, in the centre of Sheffield.

South Yorkshire Police and Sheffield City Council are working in partnership to prepare for the events. One of our main priorities is to help minimise any possible disruption to the usual Saturday city centre activities, including the normal retail activity expected to occur. Given the numbers expected to attend, it is inevitable that there will be some level of disruption to the normal flow of the city and we will seek to keep you appraised of the situation in the lead up to the event. This will enable you to make your own decision as to any actions you may wish to take in relation to your businesses. South Yorkshire Police will hold an open briefing on Thursday 6th June at 10am in the lecture theater in Snig Hill Police Station where the plans will be outlined to you and you will be able to ask any questions you may require answering relating to the events due to occur on 8th June. Both the Police and Council will be deploying additional staff to the town centre on Saturday and whilst respecting people's right to protest peacefully, we will obviously take appropriate action to deal with any disorder. As members of the community you may well come into possession of information that relates to events this coming Saturday. This information may be regarding: The protest itself Community issues Anything that would impact on the policing operation on Saturday If this is the case, please contact South Yorkshire Police using the 101 number. We will continue to contact you during the week as more information becomes available about the events. Thank you. Chief Inspector Richard Lambert
