Neighbourhood Watch is about people getting together with their neighbours to take action to reduce crime.

Neighbourhood Watch schemes can cut crime and the opportunities for crime, help and reassure those who live in the area, encourage neighbourliness and closer communities.

Our local Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator is Gerald Gresham Cooke. A Co-ordinator is the link between the local Police, Neighbourhood Watch and a group of neighbours.

Messages about local crimes and crime prevention are received by e-mail. The Co-ordinator distributes relevant material/information to their scheme members, encourages interest in good home security and feed back any information to assist the police in the detection of crimes.
