Trading Standards have advised us that there has been a significant rise in doorstep scam across our communities


As you may be aware, the methods in which these criminals act is unscrupulous and shameful.


Someone knocked on my door and was so kind and helpful, telling me a roof tile looked loper and that he was working in my area and could do it at a great price. I thought that was kind and went ahead.....little did I know that I needed more work, but the price got higher and highe. I couldn’t pay all of these extras they were adding on. Eventually I was so distraught that I couldn’t pay so I signed my house over to him.

Scammers don’t care about their victims.

BUT WE DO....

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a well loved and respected Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator and Chair of Shooters Hill Safer Neighbourhood Panel this evening, Len Newland.


Len was a coordinator for many years and over the past few years also managed his own messaging service to the community. Many people from across the borough added themselves onto the messaging and were happy to receive news.


I am sure that many of you have many happy memories of Len and as a tribute it would be nice if we collated these and passed on to his family, so if you would like to participate, either reply to this email or send one to greenwichnhwnetwork@gmail.com.


Our thoughts are with Len’s family and friends at this time.

RIP Len


Cheryl

Chair GNWN

We have seen an open letter from Leader of the Council to the community about a new project called Project Hope. This is the introduction:

The COVID-19 situation in London is the most serious it has ever been. Our NHS services are now close to breaking point, as the current surge in cases threatens to overwhelm London hospitals in a matter of days


Queen Elizabeth Hospital is in the heart of our community. Many of our residents work there, many of us have been treated there and now, more than ever before, we need to come together as a community and support the whole hospital team.

We’re asking local businesses and individuals to donate the following items and services to staff who are working long hours, under intense physical and emotionally demanding circumstances, with many unable to go home because they need to protect their own family and friends from catching the virus.


We are putting together a team of people to support our brilliant NHS staff in the hospital and are asking for across the Greenwich community. Please share this letter widely and please note that the hospital are asking for donations NOT to be dropped off at the QEH but through this official route so we can coordinate things and do our best to support the community.




Please share and get involved.
