Neighbourhood Watch and Local Policing

 Neighbourhood Watch and our local Police team are working to make our community a safer place for all residents. 
Please be vigilant and report any suspicious activity. 

building secure, confident communities
Neighbourhood Watch groups are run by local people,
with the full support of local police forces.  Crime prevention
is not the only aspect of the scheme, but
some insurance companies will give discount on home insurance premiums
for group members.

If you would like to form or join a Neighbourhood Watch
group, the parish coordinator will be pleased to assist.
