Your new Neighbourhood Watch is launched!
Hi everyone, my name is Caroline and I am your new Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator. If you receive the parish magazine you are eligible to join.
Neighbourhood Watch is about creating safe, pleasant communities rather than a fear of crime. Everyone has a right to feel safe where they live. The scheme will work closely with existing groups such as Rother Neighbourhood Watch Association, SUSSEX CRIMEWATCH , Sussex Farmwatch and Sussex Countrywatch. If there are any groups I’ve missed please let me know.
I am aware I am following in the footsteps of Alan Haselup and Marion Woodward, amongst others. Hopefully, this new scheme will prove as useful and worthwhile to the village. I would welcome help so please do get in touch if you are interested. NHW schemes used to be set up for single streets but there are no active ones in Pett at the moment. Schemes are not run by parish or district councils, but entirely by volunteers in association with the police (I’ve been police checked).
To join, send me (or drop it in at Little Buds, Pett Road – next to Lunsford Farm) the completed form printed in the July Parish News. Alternatively, send your name, address, email & telephone number to me at
Over the next few weeks, I will contact you with more details and organise your stickers and ‘no cold calling’ signs. You can choose to have information via post, email or a simple monthly update via Pett and Pett Level Community Facebook Group and Pett on the Net.
Stay safe and with best wishes,
Data: Your details will never be passed on outside of the Pett Neighbourhood Watch scheme. Your coordinator(s) will hand over your membership to Rother Neighbourhood Watch if they step down. The only time your details will be passed to the Rother Policing Team if there is a problem at your property whilst you are away and the coordinator is contacted by the police (i.e., if they see your Neighbourhood Watch window sticker and are trying to get in touch with you).
