'St Georges Park' form new Neigbourhood Watch

Neighbours in St Georges Park have set up a new neighbourhood watch covering Sherbourne, Salisbury, Hedwick, Ebenezer and Seneca Streets.

This is in direct response to recent attempted and actual crimes. We are liasing with other successful schemes around St. George West.

Practical measures like this are what are needed to give our more vulnerable neighbours confidence – not endless “crime surveys” which only tell us what those of us that already live here (and the police) already know.

I am greatly heartened by the response of the residents our confirmed members already number over 40 and I am sure this in itself will contribute to deterring criminals thinking of targeting these streets.
