Your Local Scheme
The Meadows Home Watch Project
This project has been inspired by a number of personal factors that occurred almost simultaneously, having recently moved into a brand new housing estate made me more aware of my environment. Events relating to the recent floods gave all the neighbours an occasion to communicate and it was encouraging to see how people very quickly responded to helping each other. This gave me the idea of setting up a community group and a Neighbourhood Watch scheme. It seemed like a legitimate way of proposing this to fellow residents. This scheme is recognized and has credibility with other organisations and therefore I thought it would be much easier for residents to accept a scheme that had already been well established.
