  • Latest General NHW Newsletter

    The time has come once again to grab that cup of tea, put your feet up and enjoy our NHW newsletter. This month we reflect on perception of crime in lockdown and the successes of Neighbourhood Watch Week.

    As well as looking at what we can learn from our experiences during lockdown we also look to our future and consider diversity in Neighbourhood Watch, summer seminars, the launch of a national burglary campaign, and how we can harness the power of volunteers post lockdown.

    Kind regards

  • Safer roads campaign

    Sussex Safer Roads Partnership

    Sussex Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP) are campaigning to ensure road users think of a safe and legal way to travel during festive celebrations.

    Throughout December, SSRP will be working with Sussex Police to prevent and detect incidents of drink and/or drug driving, providing motorists with thought provoking information on the risk and impact of driving whilst under the influence.

    Road users will be encouraged to think about alternative modes of travel during the festive period, such as nominating a designated driver, booking a taxi, or walking home with friends. Motorists are also reminded of the effect of alcohol or drugs the morning after, and are encouraged to consider the impact if stopped or involved in a collision whilst over the limit.
