Ward Walkabouts

This is an initiative to tackle the perception of crime, strengthen community spirit and resolve community issues. This involves local councillors and local residents leading a 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 Mackworth Ward. We walk, talk, greet and listen, dealing with issues we come across while hopefully having fun at the same time.

  • Future dates and venues to be confirmed
