Gainsborough and District Neighbourhood Watch covers an area of West Lindsey from Newton on Trent in the south to Susworth in the north and as far east as the A15. There are approximately 194 schemes with some 5000 members. Each co-ordinator receives the messages either by email or phone and distributes them to their scheme members. With the advent of “lincsalert” all members can now receive the messages direct. NHW has contributed to a reduction of crime across the area as a whole.
We now have a Nominated Neighbour Scheme which helps to protect the elderly and vulnerable, in addition a number of No Cold Calling Zones have been set up, and again these help to reduce the fear of crime.
