WHAT’S NW ALL ABOUT?
Its all about being a good neighbour. 31 of us each look after a street or a part of one and we aim to:
welcome newcomers to the village and ensure they have someone to call on.
tell them about facilities and provide a contact for further information.
warn neighbours of scams and nearby crime incidents, give advice about how to avoid being a target.
alert police to problems in the area such as bogus callers and provide held if you suffer a crime and don’t know what to do about it.
AND THE POLICE?
We are constantly in touch with the Surrey Police, especially our two neighbourhood specialist police officers PC James Green and PCSO Lorraine Wells. Lorraine has an informal 11am surgery every 3 weeks at the Post Office, and at least one officer WALKS the village almost every day. When you see them why not stop and have a chat?
SPEEDWATCH is here – so WATCH YOUR SPEED!
5 people have now been trained to monitor traffic through the village. It takes an hour’s video and theory and a single practical session using the camera and logging information to be qualified. Then you go out with one or two others for about 45 minutes whenever it suits. Speeding is noisy, dangerous and makes crossing the High Street a real problem. The team could do with a few more helpers. Maybe you? Contact the Parish Clerk for more details.
DOES BOREDOM = CRIME?
Not all crime is down to young people but work continues on developing activitesthat they feel able to engage with. These include the BAGaged BMX/skate ramp andkick about area, the new playground at Grange Meadow, the Youth Club and the Surrey Youth Service Street Dance and Youth Bus (for details phone 743598).
Neighbourhood Watch remains an active organisation, with an excellent team of coordinators. Representatives are still needed for Nightingale Way, Hart Close, St. Mary’s Walk, Church Walk, Clare Cottages and parts of Coneybury and Barfields. If you can help please call Di on 743598 or email@example.com
