Ward walkabouts is an initiative to strengthen community spirit, build safer communities and resolve community issues. This involves Councillors, Streetpride, Derby Homes and the Police, together with local residents leading a high profile and visible patrol. The idea behind this is to get back to traditional community values of local people looking out for each other and identifying and problems raised in the area. 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. Please come along and join us.
