Welcome to the April edition of OUR NEWS. Whilst crime prevention is a key driver for Neighbourhood Watch, we have been uniquely embedded in communities for 40 strong years, perfectly positioning us as a gateway between individuals and the support they need to enable them and their communities to thrive.

As a Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator recently said, 'Neighbourhood Watch is the bridge between the community and the police. The gateway is us, the Coordinators, connecting, sharing information, communicating and making people feel confident.'.

As we draw nearer to Neighbourhood Watch Week (30th May - 5th June), the Month of Community, and the Queen's Platinum Jubilee also in June, this edition focuses on ways we can improve our community's health and wellbeing. It also features articles on:

  • free training for Neighbourhood Watch volunteers
  • the era of the swindler
  • making a community
  • engaging young people
  • and much more.

So take some time out, put that kettle on and enjoy.
