Leaders of East Riding’s newest ‘Neighbourhood Watch’ are delighted that Matthew Grove, Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside, has accepted their invitation to him to meet with them in November.
Christine Theakston, Coordinator of the forty-strong group in Woodmansey, Beverley, which signed up its latest members in August, said “For the top man in Humberside Police to come to our Woodmansey meeting is fantastic. We were told he recognises the importance of ‘Neighbourhood Watch” but we honestly thought he would be far too busy to come to our meeting.”
The Woodmansey group which ceased to exist five years ago after its long-serving Coordinator resigned through ill health, was relaunched in July this year and serves much of what is known as ‘Woodmansey Village’.
Ray Grange, Chair of the Beverley Neighbourhood Watch Panel said “I am delighted to welcome Woodmansey back as a member of the Beverley Neighbourhood Watch. The Woodmansey group has also established an effective working relationship with the council and Humberside Police. It has the support of many of its residents who are taking a keen interest in crime prevention. They set a commendable example of caring about their neighbours and where they live.’
All residents of Woodmansey are welcome to come along to the informal meeting and talk to the Police and Crime Commissioner on Wednesday 6 November from 7p.m. at the Residents’ Lounge, Shopeth Way, Woodmansey.
