Neighbourhood Watch Notes for January - February 2019



























It’s understood that all is, relatively, quiet – which is confirmed by the comments, following contact having been made with P.C. W. Wright (Kilburn SNT) whose reply read:


“Happy New Year John, hope all is well with you? It’s been very quiet over  the Christmas period in your area, nothing to report, apart from fish sellers going door-to-door selling fish?? These have been stopped and checked and all seemed in order?  Portway – let’s hope the Church wall is finally getting sorted ??”


With regard to her last comment – perhaps an update on any progress, regarding St Michael’s Church wall repair, will appear elsewhere in the Village Magazine.


Apart from the above, as far as I’m aware, the visits by the Mobile Police Surgery have temporarily been put ‘on-hold’, pending further information.


The above information has appeared in the intermediate Neighbourhood Watch notes, and also on the Village website. If you are not receiving the intermediate notes, and wish to do so, then please contact John Meggitt (details below).

Crime Prevention Advice for Garden Sheds


  • Make sure there are no tools left in the garden that could be used to attack the shed.
  • Lock all windows.
  • Cover up the window so people can’t see what is in the shed.
  • Fit coach bolts or non-return screws (use to replace all screws on the hinges and locks).
  • Use a hasp and staple to secure shed.
  • Fit a padlock (certified to BS EN 12320 minimum Grade 3)
  • Please ensure that your property is positively identified – by the use of, say, an UltraViolet (U/V) Pen.

If you need Crime Prevention advice, contact our local Police Officer – refer to details above.
