This is a message on behalf of Angela Money BEM, Chair of Newbury and Thatcham, Neighbourhood Watch.
The next Neighbourhood Watch meeting is being held on 20th November 2017 at 7.30pm in West Berkshire Council Offices, Market Street, Newbury. There will be an interesting talk by Dr Nick Young about Newbury Then and Now.
Representatives from the Police and fire Service will also be attending to give crime updates and both will be available to answer any questions. If you have any particular issues that you would like comments on, please let me know so that they can do some research and report back at the meeting.
There will be refreshments, a raffle, crime prevention literature and a handout giving various information worth passing on to your neighbours. The minutes of the last meeting will be sent out with the meeting reminder.
There is parking close by and the evening charge is £2 in the car parks but there is free parking in the parking bays after 6pm near Bartholomew Street and Cheap Street.
For security reasons, the main door to West Berkshire Council Offices will be locked at 7.45pm so please arrive by 7.30pm.
Dates for meetings in 2018 have been arranged for 26th February, 21st may, 20th August and 26th November. Can you please make a note of these dates in your diary.
I will have some Members Guides and Stickers available at the meeting but the Guides can be downloaded via the Thames Valley Neighbourhood Watch Association website: http://tvnhwa.org.uk/downloads.php and can be forwarded onto your neighbours.
Anyone is welcome to attend this meeting, so please come along and bring any neighbours or friends, as it is important to have a good attendance for the speakers and I do appreciate your support.
We are also having a Neighbourhood Watch stand in the Kennet Centre on 16th November. We will have a limited supply of literature stickers but if you require anything specific, please let me know and I shall ensure that we have them available for you to collect.
I can be contacted via my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning 01635 40866.
Many thanks, Angela
