The Parish Neighbourhood Watch Scheme was started in 1992 after all houses were contacted by the Parish Council to assess support and now covers 345 houses in the Parish. The scheme was set up by the Police with the help of nearly 50 residents who offered to help in the organisation.
Chris Pogson is General Co-ordinator and Alison Lloyd-Williams is Deputy Co-ordinator.
There are 9 Area Co-ordinators who look after various areas of the Parish:
The co-ordinators work through a network of contacts, each having about 10 houses on their 'patch'. The Over Kellet View, the monthly village magazine, contains a Neighbourhood Watch section which reports on any relevant crimes and crime trends in the area. In addition, urgent messages and warnings are, whenever necessary, put on the village notice boards.
