A new neighbourhood watch group for the whole of Calverley has been set up.
Details of how you are able to "get involved" with the group and find out information to protect yourself and your home will be posted here.
A meeting is to be arranged to discuss how we can help and protect people who have dementia or are carers for others. Details of the date of the meeting will be posted as soon as a convenient date has been agreed. Representatives from Help the Aged, Dementia UK and other local support organisations are invited/have been invited to the meeting.
There is already a fantastic Facebook site "Calverley Watch Group" which provides useful (often real time) information about suspicious activity/crime in the village with details of streets, camera images etc and a Twitter page @CalverleyWatch which provides useful information about personal/home/online security.

The aim of the Neighbourhood Watch and Home Watch movement is to bring neighbours together to create strong, friendly, active communities where crime and anti-social behaviour are less likely to happen.
Our vision is that of a caring society that is focused on trust and respect in which people are safe from crime and enjoy a good quality of life.
Neighbourhood Watch is about making sure that no one has to feel afraid, vulnerable or isolated in the place where they live. It’s about people looking out for each other, crossing barriers of age, race and class to create real communities that benefit everyone.
Powerpoint slides from the community meeting that took place on the 28 January are available below.
