Tendring District Neighbourhood Watch Report to ECNWA Meeting 10th January 2023
Since the last Essex County Neighbourhood Watch Association meeting in November 2022 it has been quite a slow period for TNHW, although we have continued to recruit members, but these have mostly come from the National Neighbourhood Watch Networks Alert Database as we have not held nor attended any event days since the end of October. During December we held a social evening for our Coordinators and Volunteers who help out with events throughout the year to say a thank you to them for all that they do. A Tendring Neighbourhood Watch street coordinator in Harwich has started a NHW Hub for the coordinators in the Harwich area, which has met with a degree of success. They are keeping in touch with each other to discuss problems associated with the Harwich Area and to share transport to attend the quarterly Tendring NHW committee meetings. The group called Jaywick Sands Neighbourhood Watch, which is an Approved Group/Scheme of Tendring Neighbourhood Watch, and is a part of TNHW, plan to hold their Annual General Meeting in February. National Neighbourhood Watch has now produced a new logo which although being very similar to the 40th Anniversary logo produced for the 2022 anniversary which said 1982 to 2022. The logo this time says 1982 to Today which is more relevant. Tendring Neighbourhood Watch will start to use the new logo after our next Executive Committee meeting at the end of January 2023. National Neighbourhood Watch has now opened an on-line shop selling NHW Area signs, Window Stickers, and other items which can be purchased on-line using PayPal. As far as Tendring Neighbourhood Watch is concerned the signs and stickers that we usually purchase from different suppliers can now be found in one location there by saving us time in ordering from differing sources. We would only order from the National Neighbourhood Watch on-line shop if their price was competitive with our current suppliers. We are now trying to set up a series of meetings for 2023 with our Essex Police Liaison Officer, the Head of Citizens in Policing and the Essex Police Tendring Community Safety and Engagement Officers. These meetings are designed for the flow of information between all the parties involved and to date have proved very effective. We will later on this year be publishing our calendar of events for 2023 that we plan to undertake. The General Committee Meetings planned for members of Tendring Neighbourhood Watch in 2023 are: February 9 th at 7.30pm at SAMS Hall, Imperial House, 20-22 Rosemary Road, Clacton, CO15 1NZ September 7 th at 7.30pm at SAMS Hall, Imperial House, 20-22 Rosemary Road, Clacton, CO15 1NZ December 14 th (Social Event for Coordinators and Volunteers to thank them for their efforts during the year) at 7.00pm at SAMS Hall, Imperial House, 20-22 Rosemary Road, Clacton, CO15 1NZ This years Annual General Meeting will be held on May 11 th at 7.30pm at SAMS Hall, Imperial House, 20-22 Rosemary Road,
