The Parish Council would like to encourage as many residents as possible to join the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme. The scheme helps look out for any suspicious or criminal activity that is happening in the village. Every part of Bainton and Ashton has their own co-ordinator, who informs residents of any new prevention schemes that are put in force by the police. The Co-ordinators are also there for you to report any problems to after contacting the police. Any ongoing incidents should be reported as soon as possible to the police on 999 before contacting the Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator. Any other incidents should be reported to the police on 101.
Please contact Cliff Stanton (01780 749123) for details of the scheme in Bainton and Ashton and to be put in touch with your street co-ordinator. Anyone wishing to volunteer as a Co-ordinator is most welcome to contact Cliff.
Local Co-ordinators and the areas covered are:
- Hilary Smith: Ashton
- Rob McNeish : Helpston Road, St Marys Close and part of Church Lane
- George Hayward: Tallington Road area and part of Church Lane
- Wendy Jackson: Ufford Road
- Andy Totten: Badinton Lane
- Isobel Duff: Barnack Road
“No Cold Caller” stickers are available from Wendy Jackson.
