Merton Conservatives attended the Merton Neighbourhood Watch AGM that was held this week in the Merton Civic Centre.
Great work and a big thank you to all those Merton residents who volunteer and to the Safer Merton Team for operating the scheme.
At the AGM we heard from Inspector Bob Whitehead and the excellent work of Merton’s Police. We were also given a presentation from Jason Young of Merton Council detailing his teams invaluable work in preventing the Borough’s young people from falling into a violent gang culture.
Neighbourhood Watch is community run scheme, supported by the Police, which helps cut crime and incidences of Anti-Social behaviour. Started in 1982, Neighbourhood Watch is the largest voluntary movement in the UK.
