Here at One Community we have worked closely with Neighbourhood Watch in Hampshire to broaden engagement. You can read the report on our website.
Neighbourhood Watch is an inclusive organisation which aims to reflect the concerns of local communities, and works with police and other crime professionals to create safer neighbourhoods and boost neighbourliness.
National Neighbourhood Watch says:
We traditionally choose this week to celebrate the Neighbourhood Watch movement – as it covers the two weekends before and after the summer solstice – the year’s longest day – on June 21. This time of year – with its long days and light evenings – gives our members the best opportunity to engage their local community in events to celebrate Neighbourhood Watch Week.”
If you are thinking of getting involved in your local community, consider becoming a part of your local Neighbourhood Watch or setting up a new one! There are over 10,000 schemes already across Hampshire and so there might be one closer than you think.
For information on schemes in your area please contact Hampshire and Isle of Wight Neighbourhood Watch (HINWA) Chairman Bob Coombes on email@example.com who can help you find your local scheme.
