Group meeting for all local Neighbourhood Watch people on Monday 25th feb at 19.30, Douglas Eyre Centre, Coppermill Lane

Bex, talking about the local streets approaches to developing the idea of using ‘Neighborhood Watch’ as a way of helping communities connect and look out for each other, writes:

“We are all doing things that are a side step to the way traditional watches are run but also include the more traditional approach (meetings and newsletters etc)”

“Altogether we are creating a brilliant, vibrant inclusive and connected neighbourhood”

“There are several media channels and publications keen to cover our stories.”

Remembrance Plaque

Further to the recent exploration into the past residents of the road who lost their lives in World War 1, some residents decided they would like to pay respect to the everyday working class people from the road who lost their lives to the futility of war.

This will be in the form of a plaque on the wall by the bike hangar. There will be a short dedication at 11am on Saturday December 8th.
