Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch

This is a new page and is still under development. It's objective is to provide information about Neighbourhood Watch, how to set-up a residents' group and to act as an information clearing house.

Current Status

Apart from the group in Victoria Crescent, Neighbourhood Watch has become dormant in the Parish.

The national organisation has been undergoing a reinvention and is once again very active with new initiatives and help and guidance.

There is also a very active County association at: www.cambsnhw.org.uk  contact = Robin Sutton (Chairman)  email - robin55@btopenworld.com


Concerns

Crime has also moved on and burglaries have dropped but Scams have increased together with drug related crime and terrorism.


Objectives of Neighbourhood Watch

The objectives are still the same, namely to encourage communities to look out for themselves, provide intelligence to the Police, and so help prevent crime and to provide neighbourly help if and when required.
