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 20 August 2018 at 7.30 pm in West Berkshire Council Offices, Market Street, Newbury and we shall be having a talk by Berkshire Lowland Search & Rescue who help the Police search for high risk vulnerable missing persons. Christine McElhill, Community Banker for NatWest who deals with scams and Trading Standards will be available to answer any questions before and after the meeting.
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.
Final meeting for 2018 has been arranged for Monday 26 November. Can you please make a note 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.
I will have some Members Guides and Stickers available at the meeting but the Guides can be downloaded via the Thames Valley Neighbourhood Watch Association website: http://www.tvnhwa.org.uk/downloads.php and can be forwarded on to your neighbours. Anyone is welcome to attend this meeting, so please come along and bring any neighbours or friends, as it is important to have a good attendance for the speakers and I do appreciate your support.
