A few years ago the then Neighbourhood Watch (NW) Coordinator for my street, Denholm Road in Musselburgh, East Lothian, decided that they could no longer do the role. NW Scotland reached out to all the members of the Watch to see if any one of us was prepared to take on the role. As I didn’t want it it to fold and knowing it is a great scheme, I took it on.
I have made myself known to the residents of my street and more recently amalgamated nearby streets into our Watch. Two of the streets had never previously been in a Watch.
This will be 4 streets in the whole development now under a Neighbourhood Watch to bring the local community together to address community safety and crime in our area.
