Neighbourhood Watch Scheme Revisited

The Parish Council is working with North Yorkshire Police to see whether we can rejuvenate the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme in Claxton and Sand Hutton. The North Yorkshire Police website describes the scheme as:-
Neighbourhood Watch is a long established countywide voluntary organisation based on the simple philosophy of “getting together with your neighbours to reduce local crime and disorder to make your neighbourhood a safer and better place to live, work and play”.

It sounds to be a really good idea for a rural village community like ours.

But for the idea to work in our villages, we need some residents to want to join and support the scheme. Hopefully you will have worked out that there is a Saturday Social event this Saturday 20th April in the Village Hall at 10.30am! We are hoping that Gail Cook from Ryedale District Council, PCSO Nicki Pounder and also Ryedale South Beat Manager PC Paul Fenwick will come along with leaflets and information and will be able to chat to you about what is involved. It is a great chance to find out more, talk to the police and have a piece of cake at the same time!

Look out for more information on the NHW scheme on this website and notice boards in the coming weeks.
