Bishampton Neighbourhood Watch

Dear Neighbour

With the Parish Council approval at the AGM (1/4/2019) we are setting up a simplified Neighbourhood Watch for Bishampton using the NW ‘our watch’ system.

Ideally we would like every household to sign up!

Deputy scheme coordinators will shortly be knocking on doors to ask households to sign up.

It allows us to send one message out to everyone on our scheme via email.

The information will be used by your local Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator and deputies to administer this officially approved Neighbourhood Watch Scheme and to send you local Police alerts, awareness of scams, crime prevention messages and information and newsletters relevant to the work of Neighbourhood Watch and this scheme.

Please note that all the information you give, will be kept completely private and confidential on the approved NW ‘our watch’ system. This information is only so that we can keep a full contact list of all our scheme members to help send you updates.

Don’t have a computer or access to email??

If you do not have a computer do not worry your local deputy NW coordinator will use your phone number /s for registration to the official scheme – you will not receive email alerts however, we will aim to see to it that you receive important updates via text or through your door (when deemed necessary) by your neighbouring deputy.

Once you have been officially registered you will be issued with the latest NW sticker. This is a good deterrent. You can also confirm to your home insurance company that you are a member of an approved Neighbourhood Watch scheme.
