Neighbourhood Watch Week 2021 is approaching. 5th-11th June

This year National Neighbourhood Watch Week is from 5th – 11th June and the theme is all about connecting with your community. That might mean revitalising the connections in your street or area with your Neighbourhood Watch membership, or it might just be more generally making the most of the community around where you live.

As a group you can look at the resources about the week on the OurWatch website just here. You can see what ideas there are for doing things in your community; you can download logos for the week (perhaps to go on any flyers you might produce; and there are links to other things happening in June.

The Big Lunch kicks off the week (5th-6th June). Can you organise something with your neighbours?

What about doing a litter pick together or doing an environmental assessment walking your area and reporting any problems as appropriate?

Maybe it’s a good time to recruit more residents as members of your Neighbourhood Watch Group or your neighbourhood forum?

Whatever you arrange we’d be interested to know what you’re up to. Let us know and we’ll share news about on our blog and social media. And afterwards send us photos? It would be great to compile a story about connections made across North East Lincolnshire during the week.

You can read more about the week in the May edition of the OurWatch e-newsletter too here.

Any thoughts about the week, please talk to Glyn or Karl about them.

Have a great Neighbourhood Watch Week 2021.
