Establishing the Watch in new housing areas
Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators met on July 14 and items from the discussions included:
Establishing the Watch in new housing areas. – Much progress has been made in this area with new Co-ordinators coming forward.
• The Grange has 3 Co-ordinators with a Watch notice on a lamp post at the entry to the estate.
• St Lythan’s Park has 1 Co-ordinator and a notice on a lamp post at the entry to the estate.
• Cambrian Park has 2 Co-ordinators and a notice on a lamp post at the entry to the estate.
We have produced postcard-sized notices which Co-ordinators can use to introduce themselves to their nearby residents.
As more houses are built in these areas, we will need more Co-ordinators. If you are interested in helping to deter crime in your locality, and would consider becoming a Co-ordinator, please contact our Secretary/Treasurer Jacky Gauci on 07876 207843 or email@example.com
Crime in Wenvoe – In general Wenvoe is only affected by low level crime such as stealing of shrubs, manhole covers and incidents of fly tipping. We should all be aware of suspicious activity and, if seen, inform our local Co-ordinator or the police on 101.
We were made aware of a serious incident when a high value car was stolen from a drive after the thieves had broken into the house at night and taken the car keys. The advice here is to place car keys in a safe place at night – perhaps in the bedroom.
Data Protection Act – We noted the introduction of the Regulations governed by this Act and are taking action to ensure the Watch complies.
