I am currently helping some residents from Burney’s Lane to start up such a scheme.
As a member of the Policing and Community Safety Partnership and a local councillor, I know that people are very concerned about burglaries and feeling unsafe in their own homes.
Years ago most people knew their neighbours and they looked out for each other. I think we need to get back to those old fashioned ideals.
Everyone has the right to feel safe in their home and have their personal property protected, and I feel one way to achieve that would be to form more Neighbourhood Watch schemes in local areas.
Anyone who is interested in establishing a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in their area should contact Mossley Mill and ask for the PCSP manager or contact their local Neighbourhood Policing Team.
