Neighbourhood Watch for Bradmore Green
Brookmans Park’s village centre is to have its own neighbourhood team. Up until now Bradmore Green has not been covered by the local neighbourhood watch group.
The idea came up during the recent community crime meeting held at the Brookmans Park United Reformed Church in February. Click here for a report on that meeting.
Since then, discussions have been taking place between Brenda Harris, Secretary of the Brookmans Park and Little Heath Neighbourhood Watch Group (now the new Ward Coordinator), the local community PC, Jitu Dave, and local residents.
First official mention of the formation of the group was made in the latest neighbourhood watch newsletter, which is published on this site. Click here to read it.
Brenda Harris hopes the expansion of the group to cover Bradmore Green will mean that more local residents will report crime and more information about crime will be made available.
She is also hoping that the group will give the local residents a more direct contact with their Ward Constable, Jitu Dave, who she says "has made a big effort to get to know the residents and traders in that area."
Brenda is looking for residents from Bradmore Green to join the group and help distribute leaflets. The group already has representatives from most sides of Bradmore Green but are still looking for residents from the sides above the Co-op and the Raj restaurant.
If you want to be involved you can contact Brenda on 01707-655355. According to neighbourhood watch organisers, written invitations will be delivered door-to-door prior to the event.
The new group will be officially launched at a local neighbourhood watch meeting on Wednesday 21 June.
You can discuss this issue in this site’s forum.
