Shobdon Neighbourhood Watch
The aim of Neighbourhood Watch is to bring neighbours together to create a strong, friendly and active community where crime and anti-social behaviour are less likely to happen. Neighbourhood Watch is a partnership where people come together to make Shobdon safer. It aims to help people protect themselves and their properties, and to reduce crime, the fear of crime, and the incidence of fire and environmental damage, by means of improved home security and home safety awareness, greater vigilance, accurate reporting of suspicious incidents and crime to the police, and by fostering a community spirit.
All the neighbourhood watch contacts are volunteers. The Neighbourhood Watch now has its own email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use 101 - at the last Neighbourhood watch meeting, PCSO Steph Annette stressed the importance of using the 101 phone number to to report crime. (It is always important to make a note of your incident number for future reference.) This can be done anonymously. Crime Stoppers is also 100% anonymous and the phone number for this is 0800 555 111. It is quite common for people to conclude that ‘someone’ will report an incident and due to this, issues can go unreported and unactioned.
Volunteers Needed: The neighbourhood watch needs a new representative for Bateman Close, so if you want to be involved in making your neighbourhood a safer place you can contact the Parish clerk to find out more. The task is not too onerous and involves attendance at 2 meetings a year and very occasional liaison with the local police.
