Neighbourhood Watch means different things to different people but what it's definitely not about is fear mongering, nosy-parkers and curtain twitching.
Quite the contrary.
It's knowing who your neighbours are. It's knowing that we are all part of a community that look out for each other. It's keeping each other safe. It's looking out for each others kids, or grannies and granddads. It's knowing who in your street is vulnerable and may need a hand from time to time.
It's being aware of the dangers that unfortunately do lurk. It's about being part of one big family and it's about staying safe.
It's about caring; for ourselves, our families, our community, our town.

Let not any one pacify his conscience by the delusion that he can do no harm if he takes no part, and forms no opinion. Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.

Neighbourhood Watch is in the process of building a network street to street. If you haven't already done so, please join Nextdoor which is a free social platform that connects neighbour to neighbour, street to street. Search "Groups" for your street name, and join that group. Eventually each street will have a Street Representative, identifiable by their NHW logo. This is an ongoing project and if you would like to Represent your street, please contact us.
