East Dean & Friston’s approach to Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) is a joint initiative between the Residents' Association and the Parish Council. We are not a member of any National or Regional NHW scheme but we do share the same aims of bringing neighbours together to create a strong, friendly and active community.
At the core of the ED&F scheme are the two email registers maintained by the RA and PC, and this NHW webpage. These are used to advise residents of NHW related information with the RA taking the lead and focusing on local information and advice, including related police notices and updates on scams etc, whist the PC tends to deal with high level NHW general information (amongst other things). To have your email address included on one or both of the registers, send your name and email details to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com.
A number of homes in the Parish do not have access to emails/internet.
Please be neighbourly and keep neighbours advised.
Watch out for vulnerable neighbours.
If there is anything related to NHW you think we should be sharing let us know via one of the above emails.
Here are some links to related websites/pages.
The Parish Council has joined the East Sussex Against Scams Partnership (ESASP) to raise awareness about the impact of scams on local residents. Click here for info on the initiative.
