Message from Angela Money BEM, Chair of Newbury and Thatcham Neighbourhood Watch.

The next Neighbourhood Watch Meeting is being held on Monday 25 November 2019 at 7.30 pm in West Berkshire Council Offices, Market Street, Newbury and we shall be having a talk by Mark Godsland who is the Thames Valley Police Cyber Protect Officer on Fraud and Cyber Crime.
Representatives from the Police and Fire Service will be giving crime updates and both will be available to answer any questions.   If you have any particular issues that you would like comments on, please let Angela know so that they can do some research and report back at the meeting.  
There will be refreshments, a raffle, crime prevention literature and a handout giving various information worth passing on to your neighbours.  There is parking close by and the evening charge is £2 in the car parks but there is free parking in the parking bays after 6.00 pm (closest is Bartholomew Street and Cheap Street). 
We shall be having a stand in the Kennet Centre at the Healthwatch West Berkshire event on Friday 1 November from 10.00 am – 3.00 pm so please come and see us.
The Minutes of the last meeting are attached to this message.
Angela can be contacted via her e-mail address: or by phoning Newbury 40866.      Just a reminder for Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinators and Deputies to please let Angela know, either by email or phone, your contact details and properties you cover so that your record on the database can be updated.   If you have already provided this information, very many thanks but sadly so many people have still to advise their details.
Meeting dates for next year are:  Monday 3 February, Monday 18 May, Monday 10 August and Monday 23 November.  Can you please make a note of these in your diary.  For security reasons and as the Security person has to check round the building at regular intervals, the main door to West Berkshire Council Offices will be locked at 7.45 pm so please arrive at the latest by 7.30 pm.
Members Guides and other leaflets can be downloaded via the Thames Valley Neighbourhood Watch Association  website:  and can be forwarded on to your neighbours.  
Anyone is welcome to attend this meeting from all over West Berkshire, so please come along and bring any neighbours or friends, as it is important to have a good attendance for the speakers and I do appreciate your support.
Very many thanks.
