Citizens and Councillors on Patrol

This is an initiative to tackle the perception of crime, strengthen community spirit and resolve community issues. This involves councillors and local residents leading high profile and visible patrols.

The idea behind this is to get back to traditional community values of local people looking out for each other. Patrols take place in a different part of the community within the Arboretum Ward. We walk, talk, greet and listen, dealing with issues we come across while hopefully having some fun at the same time.

Wednesday 10th January 2018 - Meet at Grove Street car park for 6pm

Wednesday 21 February 2018 - Meet at Rose Homes on Oak Street for 6pm

Tuesday 6th March 2018 - Meet at Centre Court for 6pm
