The Moorpool Estate
Moor Pool Estate Harborne is a historic garden suburb founded on Quaker principles by John Sutton Nettlefold in 1908. Our Estate is a very special place with strong community values but over the last few years the area plus Harborne Ward has seen an increase in car crime and burglaries, as part of a wider national trend. Statistics show that better-connected communities help reduce crime and our scheme aims to strengthen the connection between our community and the police family. Being better equipped on how to protect your properties and share useful prevention ideas with each other is a step in the right direction. Registering to wmnow messaging system allows the Police to keep you up-to-date with criminal activity as well as advise crime prevention measures. As a second step, there will be a WhatsApp group setup for each road so neighbours can keep each other informed of any suspicious activity nearby. The scheme also organises policing update meetings - watch this space for more dates.
