The walk begins at 5:30 p.m. today, August 15th, at Overbrook Road and Seminary Avenue.

From RPD:

Chief William Smith, Fourth Precinct Sector 412 Lt. Robert Fleming and other Richmond Police Department officers will participate in a walk through in Richmond’s VUU/Edgehill neighborhood at 5:30 p.m. today. During the walk, RPD officers will speak with community members about safety concerns they may have and what they would like to see from the Richmond Police Department.

Sector 412 Lt. Robert Fleming says property crime in the VUU/Edgehill neighborhood has decreased. In the first six months of the year, there were 20 reports of theft from motor vehicles in that area. There’s only been 3 since the beginning of July. There’s a similar trend for reports of breaking and entering, which have dropped from 5 to 0.

“I credit this to the community and their involvement with the officers,” said Lt. Fleming. “The patrol units shifted their focus to this area. They logged many hours, engaged many citizens from the community, and helped spread the word on ways to help prevent these crimes. We want to use this walk to meet the residents and to thank them for their support.”

This event is the latest in a series of walks conducted by the Richmond Police Department in neighborhoods throughout the city.

From Richmond BizSense:

Jonathan Highfield has kneaded dough for about 20 years, both in the employment of and instruction of others. This year, he’s baking a venture entirely of his own creation.

He recently signed a lease on 5411 Lakeside Ave., where he plans to open a production facility for his Up All Night Bakery by March.

Up All Night was launched as a part-time gig in late 2019, making croissants, breads, cookies and other baked goods that are sold at farmers markets and to a few wholesale customers around town.

Highfield currently bakes in the kitchen of the Early Bird Biscuit Co.’s Bellevue Avenue location during the business’s off-hours. He said he decided to move Up All Night elsewhere because he had outgrown the Early Bird space.
