Neighbourhood Watch Wins Award

December 21, 2012 10:59 AM

The well-known Neighbourhood Watch initiative was last week awarded the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award for its success across the country.

Everyone has a right to feel safe where they live and Neighbourhood Watch has promoted that right by building strong, friendly, active communities where crime is less likely to happen.

Tom Brake MP said, 'Locally, Neighbourhood Watch has played a key role in addressing crime and antisocial behaviour that has made Sutton one of the safest boroughs in London'.

Studies have shown that a 79% decrease in crime was noted where there was an active Neighbourhood Watch. Chairman of Neighbourhood Watch Network Jim Maddan said, 'It is the grassroots membership who deserves this award for their enthusiasm, hard work and commitment to preventing and reducing crime'.

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.

    • If you agree, Tom Brake MP, the Liberal Democrats, and their elected representatives may use the information you provide to contact you about issues you may find of interest. Some of the contacts may be automated. You can opt out of these contacts at any time by contacting us.
