This is a message on behalf of Angela Money BEM, Chair of Newbury and Thatcham Neighbourhood Watch.
The next Neighbourhood Watch Meeting is being held on Monday 21 November 2016 at 7.30 pm in West Berkshire Council Offices, Market Street, Newbury and there will be an interesting talk by DC Jackie Murdock, Burglary Desk Development Officer/Central Intelligence speaking about “Dwelling Burglary and Fraud related issues in the Thames Valley”.
Representatives from the Police and Fire Service will also be attending to give crime updates and both will be available to answer any questions. If you have any particular issues that you would like comments on, please let Angela know so that they can do some research and report back at the meeting.
There will be refreshments, a raffle, crime prevention literature and a handout giving various information worth passing on to your neighbours.
Just a reminder that there is parking close by and the evening charge is £2 in the car parks but there is free parking in the parking bays after 6.00 pm (closest is Bartholomew Street and Cheap Street).
Angela can be contacted via her e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning Newbury 40866.
Meetings have been arranged for 2017 and will be held on 27 February, 22 May, 21 August and 20 November. Can you please make a note of these dates in your diary. For security reasons and as the Security person has to check round the building at regular intervals, the main door to West Berkshire Council Offices will be locked at 7.45 pm so please arrive by 7.30 pm.
We shall be having a Neighbourhood Watch stand at the Kennet Centre from 10.00 am – 4.00 pm on Thursday 20 October, so please come and see us. I will have the new Members Guides and Stickers available at the meeting on 21 November or if you are unable to make it they can be collected from me or the Police Station.
Anyone is welcome to attend this meeting, so please come along and bring any neighbours or friends, as it is important to have a good attendance for the speakers and I do appreciate your support.
