  • NHW Report for July

    One of the points brought to my attention at the NHW meeting last month pleased me enormously. Local resident and NHW member David Threlfall enjoys a daily walk through Coronation Park and dismayed at the amount of litter on the park offered to litter pick as a volunteer. In the short time he has...

  • NHW Report for June

    Phew this nice spell of warmer weather is quite nice but with the warmer weather comes more opportunity as people leave windows open. Always be aware of the opportunist thief who will always be around looking for an easy access into your home! If there is a street light out on your road/avenue...

  • NHW Report for May

    On the 8th April I joined our local neighbourhood policing Inspector Deborah Regan on a walkabout through the town together with a council colleague Cllr Ken Woodhead on the ‘Day of Action’ I mentioned in my last report. There was a table in the library where the PCSO’s were stationed for advice...

How would you like to join me in spreading the word and help make Eastwood a safer place to live? I’ll even order a little sunshine on the day! The Neighbourhood Policing Inspector for...

  • NHW Report for March

    I want to start this report by thanking PCSO Derek Kershaw who attended our Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) meeting earlier this month and gave a full and comprehensive report of current policing in this area. Everyone present appreciated his calm and honest manner. It was enlightening to say the least...

  • NHW Report for February

    Phew, it only seems a moment since Christmas and February is upon us already! I’m also very much aware that since the New Year there have been isolated house break-ins particularly in areas where the more vulnerable of our society live. Please be vigilant and always lock your doors when at home....

  • Neighbourhood Watch Column January 2013

    A happy and prosperous new year’s greeting is extended to all, from Eastwood Neighbourhood Watch. On a darker subject, anti-social behaviour puts an unwelcome blight on all our lives. Fortunately in Eastwood this problem has been kept down, through the constant vigilance of community police and...

  • Neighbourhood Watch Column December 2012

    Our final Eastwood NWatch meeting of the year: on Tues. 13th. Nov. was virtually standing room only, and for the benefit of all, including several new members, Chairman C’llor Keith Longdon, reiterated we are non-political, and that he was here to represent us as a co-ordinator, rather than as an...

  • Neighbourhood Watch Column November 2012

    Did traffic planners ever visit us before they allowed buses to stop outside the Library and snarl up the traffic flow through Eastwood? Driving through the town centre after 10am can be a nightmare of stopping and starting and navigating huge delivery vans double-parked. Is it any wonder that...

  • Neighbourhood Watch Column October 2012

    Where has all that rain come from?It makes you wonder what other little treats nature has in store for us. After a dismal summer I think the least we could expect is a mild winter, but then we’d probably be worrying about all those nasty little bugs that should have been killed off by snow and...

  • Neighbourhood Watch Column September 2012

    This summer has been all too short and a dismal washout for many of our favourite outdoor events, but on a more positive note there is still a lot to look forward to, and this is what we should do, and not give in to the doom and gloom merchants.Here in Eastwood we have many social and community...

  • Neighbourhood Watch Column June 2012

    Well, the Jubilee weekend has been and gone and despite the gloomy news about the economy, we still have the summer holidays to look forward to. The last thing we want though, when we return, is to find our home has been broken into, our most prized possessions stolen and the house trashed....

  • Neighbourhood Watch Column May 2012

    It seemed to me, like the whole of Eastwood had turned out on Saturday morning 12th. May, to welcome the Royal Engineers and Veterans, on their ‘Freedom March’ through the town. It was a great occasion with lots of flag waving and applause for the troops, greatly supported by the Mayor and...

  • Neighbourhood Watch Column April 2012

    The other day I heard somebody say that Eastwood was going downhill! He had to be joking of course. Because, north and south, we are on the up and up and definitely bucking the trend.Consider the massive retail developments now coming onto the Eastwood sites. Retail giants do not pump vast...

  • Neighbourhood Watch Column March 2012

    Our latest NHW meeting at Percy St. Baptist Church was on a cold, and slippery February evening. But we still had a good turnout. A warm welcome was extended to us, literally at the door, with steaming hot mugs of tea and coffee, generously provided by the Minister: Rev. Nick Price. Another...

  • Neighbourhood Watch Column November 2011

    Loud bangs and whistles are upsetting the Jack Russell, as he leaps frantically from one room to the next and then comes back and stares quizzically, right in your face, as if to say: why are you so calm, are you deaf, can’t you hear it? Of course you can hear, but how do you tell a pet animal,...
