Call for Neighbourhood Watch Members
We are currently in the process of re-vamping your Neighbourhood Watch Scheme (NWS) for the Village of Duns Tew.
Mr Philip Giorgi, has been appointed by the Parish Council to be the Village Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator.
In order to have a successful Village Scheme Philip and the parish council will require some support from residents throughout the village.
Neighbourhood Watch is about looking out for each other, creating closer links with neighbours especially the elderly and more vulnerable members of our community. Getting to know who your neighbours are and working together as a group, to help tackle local issues, including Anti-social behaviour and Criminal Damage, which can help to reduce crime.
Some of the advantages of joining a NWS are:
- Receive FREE crime alerts from your local police
- Obtain FREE crime reduction advice
- Receive occasional newsletters about local crime and other items of interest
- Marking your own valuables with the postcode & house number/name, using ultraviolet pens
- Message in Bottle Scheme is promoted and used through NWS
- FREE door chains/bars are available for the vulnerable and elderly through NWS
- Most insurance companies will give a discount for residents within a NWS
Most people care about the community they live in. The police want residents to help combat crime by sharing information about criminal activity in the area, helping to identify problems and working together in trying to solve them. If you would like any further details or information on Neighbourhood Watch, if you would like to become a member of the scheme and receive your free member’s pack, then please complete the slip below and return to your Village Co-ordinator, Philip Giorgi, Little Steine, Hill Farm Lane or contact Philip via email at email@example.com.
