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 May 2018 at 7.30 pm in West Berkshire Council Offices, Market Street, Newbury and there will be an interesting talk by a representative of CitizenAid on public immediate actions for multiple casualties from a shooting, stabbing or a bomb.
Representatives from the Police and Fire Service will be giving 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. Unfortunately, no minutes were taken at the last meeting as we are still looking for somebody to take over this role. If you are able to help, please let me know. 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.
Further dates for meetings in 2018 have been arranged for Monday 20 August and Monday 26 November. 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 before 7.30 pm.
We are having a Neighbourhood Watch stand in the Kennet Shopping Centre from 10.00 am - 4.00 pm on Thursday 26 April 2018. 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. If you are able to help, even it is only for a short time, please let me know.
