Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch

The village as a whole are part of the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme and registered as such. This scheme was set up by the Parish Council over 10 years ago. The scheme has a network of contact people to provide a quick communication route.  Information regarding incidents within the village and crime trends in the area (supplied on a regular basis by the police) can quickly be disseminated around the village. This allows the village to be alert to risks and to provide any information which may be helpful following an incident. The whole basis of the scheme relies on good communication and community spirit. There are also now some 16 households who receive the information via e-mail either directly from the police or forwarded from within the village.

In addition to this normal distribution of information (hard copy, word of mouth and via e-mail) there are normally about 5 meeting a year in the village hall.
