Neighbourhood Watch

By its very nature is a voluntary scheme, run solely by residents.

Each scheme is unique, because it is driven by people from their own doorsteps.

  The aim of residents communicating together under a recognised label is

to bring an identity so that they can have a voice amongst wider community affairs

to create an agreement between neighbours that they wish to actively uphold the laws of the land

to help support neighbours who may fall victim to or become vulnerable to crime

to help live in an amicable partnership with Providers of the local area

Please send us more of your ideas to expand our community spirit and care

As a NHW we major on Community Cohesion and doing sociable events with neighbours, so to create a strong bond together.

We leave policing to the Police, simply working with the Police's LOGGING SYSTEM and discussions at PACT Meetings, along with staying in dialogue with the Council, the CVS, the Safety Services, Calico, etc., who are the responsible Bodies for getting things done in our area.

 

Our NHW aim has been to work with a Scheme that enables us to safely talk  together, with a background ethos that we all want to move forward to give the area in which we live the freedom of a Well-Being feeling.

 

When the News Reporter visited our area in July 2014, this is exactly what she personally experienced.

She spoke of this good feeling on Radio Lancashire.

   To make Neighbourhood Watch work is simple....

1. Raise awareness with neighbours around where you live, it could be 2 or 3 or even 93

 

        2. Contact your constabulary

 

3. They should have a standard letter for you to hand out. These letters are returned to the police station

 in a pre-paid envelope. When 50% of the letters are returned with a positive response,

your Neighbourhood Watch Scheme for your area is confirmed - you can decide who will be the contact

        person for your scheme

 

4. Contact between neighbours could be verbal, or by written details through the door, email, or some

       schemes create their own website

 

5. Once established, to obtain window stickers and be covered by insurance, get your scheme registered  with the National Neighbourhood Watch body www.ourwatch.org.uk 

6. To keep your Scheme vibrant

- Find out where your nearest P.A.C.T. meeting is and perhaps have a representative attend

- Contact local Providers such as Fire and Emergency to advise them that you are a Scheme.

They are very keen to provide FREE fire checks and any free equipment that would safeguard against the risk of fires.

- Some Schemes, although not compulsory, have various ideas to raise the friendliness of their area...

such as holding a regular meeting to download relevant P.A.C.T. meeting or other community information, or a popular one is to join in with the Macmillan Coffee Morning held nationally in September.

- For the sharing of Regional good practice and staying informed, there are representatives from the County who meet with a Regional Body called LCWF - Lancashire Combined Watch Forum

The Lancashire Combined Watch Forum is part of the National Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.
