Barcroft Street (Sea End) Neighbourhood Watch
Barcroft Street (Sea End) Neighbourhood Watch covers the northern end of Barcroft Street, Cleethorpes. Our aims have always been to improve and maintain our area to make it a safer, environmentally friendly and pleasing place to live. Developing a return to a community has always been at the forfront of everything we do.

I am retired and have lived in Barcroft Street for 41yrs. Most of my working life was spent in the food industry with a break as a police officer with Humberside Police followed by a return to the food industry until my retirement.
As you can imagine living 41yrs in the same street I saw many changes some of which were not good, the area began to deteriorate and this began to attract should I say an undesirable element and what had been a great community spirit began to disappear, so when a couple of neighbours suggested forming a neighbourhood watch we joined forces and the rest is history. It was a very big uphill struggle in the beginning but we persevered and although we could not recreate things as they were 41yrs ago we have now got a community back who all do their bit to maintain what we have achieved.
