Your Local Scheme
Gamblesby with Unthank
Gamblesby and Unthank are two small East Fellside villages 11 miles East of Penrith in Cumbria. The Scheme covers around 70 houses and we have 30 active members. It was started as we had three instances of burglary in the villages. Gamblesby and Unthank are very community minded villages and it is part of the village culture that 'neighbours look out for one another'. However having access to information via the police and other agencies has proved valuable. I have an email list of members and I post alert notices on the village notice boards and bring any issue to the attention of villagers at other meetings and events.
