LOCAL NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH SCHEMES
Neighbourhood Watch is not just about helping to reduce burglary and anti social behaviour. It's about creating caring communities. It brings local people together to help tackle issues and can make a real contribution to improving lives.
Eaglesfield Park Neighbourhood Watch Scheme
The Eaglesfield Park Neighbourhood Watch Scheme (EPNWS) was launched in January 2006, servicing the safety and security needs of 248 households in: Cleanthus Road and Cleanthus Close, Eaglesfield Road, Foxcroft Road and part of Shooters Hill.
The scheme is supported by the Metropolitan Police, and the local Shooters Hill Safer Neighbourhoods Police Team. The fundamental mission of the scheme is People Helping People. The success of the scheme is founded on the strong and effective partnerships built and maintained with the Police, Greenwich Council, Ward Councillors, local businesses, social groups and residents.
The scheme has a team of dedicated co-ordinators who are responsible for communicating, liaising and working with residents in an allocated 'patch'. If you are interested in becoming a co-ordinator, or would like to know more, contact Jenny and Graham Penn by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Shrewsbury Park Neighbourhood Watch Scheme
The Shrewsbury Park Neighbourhood Watch Scheme was formed in the 1990s, when it was felt necessary to be more vigilant in daily life.

The scheme is supported by the Metropolitan Police, and our local Shooters Hill Safer Neighbourhood Police Team.
