Open invitation to Bridlington meeting to boost Neighbourhood Watch in the town

Residents in Bridlington are being invited to an open meeting to promote and develop Neighbourhood Watch in the town.

People are encouraged to go along, find out more about Neighbourhood Watch and how they can get involved to help make their communities safer places.

The meeting will be held at Bridlington Spa’s Promenade Suite on Tuesday 18 June from 6-8pm.

The event has been arranged by Bridlington Neighbourhood Watch and East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s anti-social behaviour team.

The meeting follows the launch of the ‘Clear, Hold, Build’ scheme in Bridlington earlier this year which is a multi-agency partnership approach designed by the Home Office to rescue areas of the country most blighted by organised crime.

Nigel Brignall, manager of the council’s anti-social behaviour team, said: “We really want people to come along to the meeting, get involved and help us drive Neighbourhood Watch forward in Bridlington, contributing towards the Clear, Hold, Build agenda.

“We will support Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators to become local community champions, taking ownership of the areas they live in and make them safer from crime and to report suspected crime with confidence.

“A lot of work has already taken place to deal with those responsible for committing crime and now it is time for Neighbourhood Watch to play a key role in building a better, safer Bridlington.”
