Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch encourages people to work together to make their communities safer and a more pleasant place in which to live. It aims to help people to protect themselves and their properties and to reduce the fear of crime by means of improved home security, greater vigilance, accurate reporting of suspicious incidents to the police and by fostering a community spirit. This is done by not only involving members of the community but establishing a close link with the police, as well as local authorities, and other voluntary organizations.

Village Scheme

The scheme in Wisborough Green is now well established with an Area Co-ordinator and Road Co-ordinators in most parts of the village. The Village Co-ordinator maintains a close link with the NHW office in Chichester, receiving regular newsletters and more specific or urgent information by telephone. This information is passed onto the Road Co-ordinators for distribution in their area. If you have any further enquiries, would like to be involved in the village scheme or would like to make contact with your Road Co-ordinator, please contact the Village Co-ordinator, Mrs Priscilla Pinkham, on 01403 700114. Please report any incidents directly to Priscilla so that she can email details to the road co-ordinators to spread the word more quickly.
