Message from Chair:
Over the last few weeks our lives have changed completely. However it has shown that communities do want to support each other, the need to belong is important and our resilience and compassion is overwhelming.
I am sure that many of you know that I also work for the Neighbourhood Watch Network as Head of Membership and Community Engagement. I have witnessed and heard about so many other coordinators and members doing amazing things in their communities in times of need. I am so amazed by these wonderful stories that we have shared them on our website https://www.ourwatch.org.uk/news/neighbourhood-watch-response-covid-19/covid-19-community-response-stories
Above all Stay Safe and Well.
Best wishes to you ALL
