It is also a chance for people to learn more about Neighbourhood Watch and how to set up a group in their area.

Current chairman Philip Knowles said: “Neighbourhood Watch should be a no-brainer as it costs nothing and doesn’t involve a very large time commitment.

“But, as Lincolnshire Police would confirm, it acts as a deterrent to people who would seek to break the law in your community.”
