URGENT EMAIL SENT VIA NEIGHBOURHOOD ALERT & GNWN EMAIL ACCOUNT
We have today sent an email via our communications network to ask for your help: We are applying for funding, but in order to receive it we must have an agreed constitution in place. We cannot wait for our AGM in September to get it agreed.
The email reads:
Good Afternoon Neighbourhood Watch Member
As you know Greenwich Neighbourhood Watch Network is working on your behalf in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, helping developing new schemes and supporting existing ones.
In 2019, we have achieved the following:
Launched a new website where coordinators can source information in one placeHosted events for coordinators: Operation Falcon and Burglary MasterclassDeveloped a proactive working relationship with Community Safety, Trading Standards, National Neighbourhood Watch Network, Safer Greenwich, Safer Neighbourhood Teams and the Inspectors, Chief Inspectors etc, as well as neighbouring boroughs.Developed and launched a Neighbourhood Watch StartUp Guide.which has been rolled out across the boroughAttended and presented at Safer Neighbourhood Ward Panels across the borough highlighting Neighbourhood Watch Negotiated with Ring for a discount with doorbells for membersNegotiated with Smart Water to get a discount for membersAttended and presented at Housing Panel meetings across the boroughAttended Better Together events across the borough and advertised Neighbourhood WatchEngaged with communities at action days in partnership with police and council officialsBeen invited by several organisations to talk about Neighbourhood WatchHelped set up new schemes in the borough, average 5 per week!!Ordered SIGNAGE for the WHOLE borough
The fact is, that Neighbourhood Watch in Greenwich is expanding and word is getting out of its benefits.
To be able to do this and to continue to do this, we need funding and without a constitution we are unable to apply for certain types of funding. The constitution was going to be agreed at our AGM in September, but we need to apply for funding now in order to become independent from Safer Greenwich from September.
Attached is a copy of the constitution to read and approve.
Please give this your urgent attention and reply, if you agree with it, a YES I SUPPORT THE CONSTITUTION
