“If you wish to know more about Neighbourhood Watch, we would be delighted to answer any questions you have or if you are considering creating or joining a Neighbourhood Watch group we will help you get started.”
The public open forum at the start of the meeting is an opportunity for members of the public to pass on their thoughts and concerns for possible inclusion in the neighbourhood priorities that will be set afterwards by a closed panel of elected members.
