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 22 May 2017 at 7.30 pm in West Berkshire Council Offices, Market Street, Newbury and there will be an interesting talk by Detective Chief Superintendent Ray Howard on Cybercrime. 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. As we are trying to cut down on photocopying, I have attached the minutes of the last meeting to this message.
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 by phoning Newbury 40866. Further meetings have been arranged for 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 are also having a Neighbourhood Watch stand in the Kennet Shopping Centre from 10.00 am - 4.00 pm on Thursday 27 April 2017. We will have a limited supply of literature and stickers but if you require anything specific, please let me know and I shall ensure that we have them available for you to collect. Finally, a reminder about the Thames Valley Neighbourhood Watch Association Conference at Thame Barn Centre, Thame on Saturday 20 May from 10.30 am – 12.30 pm. Full details were in the Alert message on 27 March. Please support this meeting as there are several good speakers and notify Naomi that you would like to attend via email to: email@example.com
