Playing Fields Pavilion, Woodways
By Haddenham Webteam - 10th August 2013 9:30am
Given the increasing numbers of burglaries (particularly from sheds, garages and outhouses) and thefts of catalytic converters being notified by Thames Valley Police, a resident of Haddenham has written to us, here at the community website, to ask whether or not a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme operates in the village.
He has inserted various local postcodes into the search facility of the national website for Neighbourhood Watch and Citizen Patrol Schemes, and he finds nothing registered for Haddenham. The relevant website can be found here.
Since such a scheme has shown to reduce crime figures, he would like to invite those who have experience as Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators to get in touch.
We will be happy to pass on any responses. Please email the editor of the website here: firstname.lastname@example.org
