Neighbourhood Watch

Message from the NHW Chair, Jim Maddan: Our 30th anniversary year is rushing by and it will soon be June and Neighbourhood Watch Week. The sight of the sun and some warm weather reminds us all that we need to be extra vigilant when we leave our homes and remember to close all doors and windows. We must also remember to put our gardening tools away and secure them in sheds and garages. Garden tools are frequently used by burglars to gain entry to homes. There is some useful information about garden security on our website,

The Home Office are passing on many of their previously held responsibilities for supporting neighbourhood and home watch schemes on to the NHWN. We have already taken on responsibility for promotional material, street signs and window stickers, and as from 1st April 2012, we assumed responsibility for Public Liability Insurance and the licensing of the Neighbourhood Watch and Home Watch logos and branding. We have negotiated an excellent PLI policy, with added features and coverage, which will benefit all approved members. This added responsibility is a sign that our status is well established and that we are truly the voice of Neighbourhood Watch and Home Watch in England and Wales.

No incidents to report.

A number of out buildings at the old railway gas house were broken into off Station Road and various plants stolen. Several cabins on farmland off Creskeld Lanewere broken into but nothing stolen. Please be vigilant and report any suspicious activity.
