Neighbourhood Watch Update

Good Afternoon,

A few Neighbourhood Watch things have been happening in the background which I would like to share with you all.

Neighbourhood Watch signs for the village have been ordered and will be fitted in due course by East Lothian Council. There will be 7 signs erected on lampposts around various parts of the village to gain maximum exposure to our scheme.

Additional signs will be placed up at Castle Moffat, the entrance to Nunraw Barns, Garvald Grange and Tanderlane Cottages. I would hope that all the signs are up before the end of this month.

There is a cost to purchase the signs and have them fixed in the various locations, the cost is £215.40 which will be paid for through Garvald & Morham Community Council’s Local Priority Fund.

I also have small Neighbourhood Watch window stickers which I will put (1) through all current members letter box in the next week.

Finally can you keep Thursday 9th Jan free when we will hold a short meeting in the Village Hall when PC Lynn Black will explain our roll in Garvald Neighbourhood Watch and any other related matters. The proposed time is 7.15 for a 7.30pm start, hopefully we can show a good turn out. I will remind every one nearer the time and have it placed on our Web site as well.

Who should I Call in the event of an incident?

If you feel threatened, unsafe, or suspicious of a caller, contact the Police immediately on 999

If you see something suspicious in Garvald or want more advice about doorstep crime, contact the Police on 101

Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Kind regards and be safe,
