We are looking for new members to help the support group coordinate our activities across Surrey Heath. Hours are to suit, however large or small.
We require support with physical work in erecting and maintaining street signs for every local Watch and also with non-physical work in representing the Watch at community events advising people on how to join and providing security advice.
We have 355 Watches in local roads covering approximately 9300 houses
We produce a quarterly newsletter (HeathWatch) for members including information from the Police and other advice
We run 4 Neighbourhood Watch meetings a year, attended by around 100 members where the Police and guest speakers present and answer questions
Last year we attended 13 local events to promote what we do, to give advice and to offer free security marking e.g. for bikes and buggies
We advise on home security measures and can give funding to elderly and vulnerable residents
We link with other agencies to give advice on cyber-crime, on-line fraud and safeguards against child exploitation
We erect and maintain street signs for every local Watch – showing that Watches are active, hence helping to deter crime.
Our website gives information about Neighbourhood Watch to let people know how to join and to give security advice.
Our Facebook page provides the latest crime
prevention advice and information on current issues
What skills do I need?
Strong arms for physical tasks.
Ability to communicate well and chat with members of the public explaining the benefits of joining their local Watch.
Enjoy being part of a team and interested in community matters.
