We have a community-wide Neighbourhood Watch scheme covering the whole of Love’s Farm and we need everyone to get involved.
Neighbourhood Watch is a national initiative which aims to create strong, friendly, active communities where crime and anti-social behaviour are less likely to happen.
We’re already proud of the strength of community here on Love’s Farm, and in many ways Neighbourhood Watch just reinforces what we are already doing as neighbours.
What it means
Being a member of Neighbourhood Watch means being a good neighbour and caring about Love’s Farm. It doesn’t mean interfering in other people’s business; just that your neighbours will look out for you, your family, your home and your street and Love's Farm, and you will do the same for them.
In undertaking to give whatever support they can to help Neighbourhood Watch achieve its objectives, all members do whatever they can to make their neighbourhood safer and more secure.
Neighbourhood Watch sends a clear message that crime and anti-social behaviour is not tolerated in our community, and we undertake to work with the police by reporting issues that affect our neighbourhood.
