Another Neighbourhood Watch Scheme Launched

2nd of November 2003

At a recent meeting held at The Royal Oak, a group of residents of Scatterdells Lane agreed to set up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme for their area.

A presentation of the need for such a scheme and the benefits was made by Phil Anslow, the police representative from Hemel Hempstead whose department provides encouragement and support. He emphasised that members of a Neighbourhood Watch are often eligible for substantial reductions in their insurance premiums once their insurance company knows they are members of a scheme. The co-ordinator for Scatterdells Lane will be Peter Ingram assisted by Sally Collins, Ian Murphy and Troy Hewgley. Signs will be erected at key points in the lane and members will be informed of local crime and prevention methods. More than a quarter of households in the lane have already joined and all other residents are encouraged to do the same. “Safety in numbers” we hope!
A fee of £5 per household has been agreed to cover the cost of signs and residents are invited to join by contacting Peter Ingram at 106 Scatterdells Lane (01923 266786). They will receive a police information pack and a list of other members in the scheme.
