KILBURN & DENBY NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH
Local Neighbourhood Watch schemes work in a variety of ways that reflect the needs of the local community.
This includes: sharing crime prevention advice and information; running awareness campaigns; holding social events and awards for local people and businesses; leading community projects, such as litter picks, a community café, flood defence response, presentations in schools and work with young people and children and community messaging with the police.
In Kilburn and the surrounding areas we are very lucky to have a proactive Neighbourhood Watch who are constantly expanding the scope of their work to ensure that all aspects of community safety have been considered and that anybody who unfortunately falls victim to a crime is supported and has a central place to turn to for crime prevention and informal support.
The local group formed in 2015 covering only 22 households but this quickly expanded throughout the entirety of Kilburn & Denby now covering a total of over 5000 properties. In this time, the group have arranged projects such as a community allotment plot, defibrillator instillation and training and also in 2018 they started to carry out 'community patrols' each evening to deter would be burglars and criminals from committing offences across the area. In March 2020 the team set up a 25 strong group of COVID-19 support volunteers who have supported 383 residents with the collection of essential shopping, medications and food bank collections.
