Lynn Farrar 'I got involved with Neighbourhood Watch (NW) in her local village in 2001. I became Chair of the Derbyshire Neighbourhood Association Trust in 2009 but reverted to a Trustee in 2011 when I was elected to the Board of the Neighbourhood Watch Network (NWN). I became Vice Chair of the charity in 2012 before being elected Chair in July 2016. I worked with colleagues to turn the organisation into a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, ensuring that the new Board was suitably skilled to take NWN into the future. I have now returned to local NW duties after recruiting a new Chair for NWN. In November 2018 I was elected Chair of Derbyshire NW once again and concentrating on the local community issues.'

Julie Dowton 'Protecting our homes and our possessions is our responsibility. We are responsible for making sure we and our family are safe. Neighbourhood Watch can give us the knowledge and skills to be aware of, and avoid, the dangers. Being part of the problem solving process is very satisfying. That is why for me 20 years on I am still as passionate about Neighbourhood Watch as I was when I started.'

Clive Stewart 'In July 2019 I was re-elected Chairman and Secretary for a sixth consecutive year. In Essex we have in excess of 140,000 Neighbourhood Watch members (inclusive of our Neighbourhood Watch Facebook Group members and Twitter users). This expansion of members raises the profile of Neighbourhood Watch and increases the distribution of our information - local crime incidents and crime prevention advice provided by Essex Police, Essex Fire & Rescue, Crimestoppers and Victim Support. Our Police Fire & Crime Commissioner has agreed increased funding for Neighbourhood Watch in 2020, which is an important year for us as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary.'
