Newtown Neighbourhood watch

Scheme information

The Newtown Neighbourhood watch was started up and is run by members of the Newtown Tenants and Residents Association. It was originally started to combat the high level of crime and anti social behaviour, it was also done to try and help bring about a better community spirit along side the NTRA, and to increase the feeling of community safety and reduce the fear of crime.
