Yesterday I attended a celebration of reaching over 50 neighbourhood watches
in the Gamesley and Charlesworth Safer Neighbourhood Area.
The event which was attended by a number of the local neighbourhood watch
co-ordinators highlighted a number of the achievements that have occurred
since the work to increase the number of neighbourhood watches started from
various measures around tackling anti social behaviour to stop nuisances
motor bikes all of which have been done by a closer partnership between the
local community and the police.
Now whilst reaching the number of 50 is good to do, from the information on
display there are still a number of area's within Gamesley and Charlesworth
that are not yet covered by a neighbourhood watch, something which the safer
neighbourhood team will be working to change.
If you are interested or would like to check if you area is covered by
neighbourhood watch team please contact a member of the Gamesley and
Charlesworth Team in person via the High Peak Community Housing Office on
Gamesley or by phone on 0345 123 33 33
