Neighbourhood Watch Notes for July - August 2018
In June I experienced a computer malfunction one result of which is that all the e-mail contacts, and e-mails, ‘disappeared’. I am now having to build-up a new circulation list for Holbrook Neighbourhood Watch; with some names resulting from a leaflet handed out at the recent Village Fete. Progress is being made but, the folk on the present list is about 25% of the former one. (One or two may have moved house, of course).
If you would like to receive Neighbourhood Watch Notes, can you please send me an e-mail message with just one word – Yes and your contact telephone number would be helpful too, please, to – email@example.com
It’s my understanding that the present list, that’s being drawn up, will meet the GDPR requirements. I’m aiming to send out N-Watch Notes again by Friday 20th July. So, if when reading these notes you have not received a N-Watch Alert Note, please contact me. Can you please inform your family, friends and neighbours too (if local) – to contact me, via e-mail. Thanks.

In June I attended a 1-day N-Watch Seminar, at Chesterfield Police Station – where an Inspector brought us up to date on several general matters. It seemed, to me, that in Holbrook, on the edge of Erewash and Derby, there are some subtle variations to some incidents ‘up north’. Nevertheless Cyber-Crime, and the like, take-up much Police time – in ‘getting to grips’ with the various perpetrators.
Set against the above, it’s understood that there are currently some 1,600 Police Officers in Derbyshire – which is some 400 less than at the turn of the century.
I’ve returned from holiday, just in time to enjoy the Holbrook Fete. A splendid occasion – blessed with good weather too.
As far as I’m aware all’s quiet, with nothing untoward having occurred whilst I was away.
This month there’s no feedback from the Kilburn SNT Police – so it’s assumed it must be quiet in our locality. Please Watch Out ! and if you aware of any untoward incidents then please advise me.
Mobile Police Surgery – is scheduled to visit Holbrook on Friday 10th August and Friday 21 September.
