NHW Newsletter February 2012

Neighbourhood Watch Newsletter - Kisl News February 2012
Jen Harrison, our PCSO, together with a Colleague, visited Willow View this Month and met residents. There were no issues of note to be reported. Inconsiderate Parking at junctions was mentioned by a couple  of residents . She advised that should a vehicle be parked inconsiderately that this is something that can be reported to Northamptonshire Police so that, where appropriate, an officer can be sent out to check on the situation. Please use the new 101 number to do this. Each incident would be looked at individually and if the vehicle is causing a complete obstruction of the highway, including the pavement, or the vehicle is causing immediate danger, then it will be dealt with.

Anyone who has Jen Harrison's direct phone number should note that it has changed to 101 ext 344275.

If you live in Ashby Close or Bugbrooke Road please think about volunteering to become a Street Representative for your street. This is not hard work, but it does help to make your neighbourhood more secure. These streets are more vulnerable than the rest of the Village as there is no obvious NHW presence. Please contact me (telephone number and email address below) if you wish to volunteer to be a Street Representative. Please see the Village Web site for the full list of Street Representatives at

  • Village news - The Police were called out to an antisocial behaviour incident in the Village and after completing an area search identified four young people responsible for causing a nuisance in the school grounds. A vehicle in Mill Lane, Kislingbury was broken into on Saturday 21 January.
