I have set up a NHW scheme for Carlton Road and the surrounding area. Carlton Road is a private road/bridleway. There are approx 100 detached properties in the road all set in large plots of approx 1 acre. The road has been a target of opportunist thieves, burglaries scarp metal and shed and outbuilding thefts including car theft. This has been significantly reduced by the activities of NHW and there is a great benefit of joining this scheme.
My name is Jill Lucas and I was a marketing manager for various PLC companies and now run my own successful property business. I own a house in Carlton Road and recognised the need to help prevent the different types of crime in this area where town meets country! It is important for residents to join together and support each other and be the eyes and the ears on the ground to help support the police. This joined up approach really works and even dog walkers play their part by noticing anything unusual in the locality. Crime has dropped considerably however it is essential that we continue to be vigilant. I welcome new members to join the scheme which is very active.
