Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators Meeting

 

Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators met on October 23rd and items from the discussions include:

New Co-ordinators are in place in Is-y-Coed and Grange Close.

Establishing the Watch in new housing areas: The Grange now has an adequate number of Co-ordinators to cover the whole of the estate.

St Lytham’s Park has 2 Co-ordinators. This is not enough for the whole area. The role of a Co-ordinator is to keep eyes and ears open to be aware of unusual activity or anti-social behaviour in their locality. If such problems are noticed the Co-ordinator can report to the police or our Wenvoe Watch Secretary/Treasurer (contact details below).

If you live in St Lytham’s Park and are interested in helping to deter crime in your locality, would you consider becoming a Co-ordinator?

If so, please contact our Secretary/Treasurer Jackie Gauci on 07876 207843 or jackie.gauci47@gmail.com

 

Twyn yr Odyn: The row of houses adjacent to the former quarry, Greenwood Close, are now being occupied and it is hoped a resident will offer to become Co-ordinator for the road.

‘Nextdoor’ website: The establishment of this website was noted. It was felt the website is a useful venue for the exchange of information and the promotion of local businesses and does not affect the activity of the Watch.
