18 December 2011
Fellow watch members,
I big thank you to all those that turned out last night to listen to my update.
For those that were unable to attend I have attached my presentation and will attempt to outline the salient points discussed at the conclusion of the Parish Meeting.
The next step for our watch is to grow our membership. In order to do this I am relying on each of you to spread the word and drum up interest in the scheme. I am in the process of printing flyers advertising the existence of the Marston NHW which I will distribute to as many households in the parish as I can.
It is also important that we turn our thoughts to signage to promote the existence of the NHW to would be criminals. I have found a supplier who will turn out the street signs shown in the attachment (300mm x 400mm) at a price of £10.32 each. It does not take a mathematician to realise that twenty signs will cost a little over £200. Helen Peach (Parish Clerk) very kindly agreed to approach Counsellor Ray Sutherland to enquire as to whether there were any funds available for signage around the lanes at Marston but it was the consensus of opinion that we should not hold our breath.
Incidentally, the small signs cost 50p each. If you would like some let me know what you would like and I will order them when I order the street signs.
As you will see from the presentation...
1. We now have an area on the national NHW website which you can join using the link below (simply input your postcode and select the 'Marston' scheme. As soon as you sign up to this you will receive emails pertinent to NHW business (similar to the Staffs police OWL system but on a national level).

I appreciate that this is a lot to take in and I am grateful for any assistance that you can afford me at this busy festive time of year.
Warm regards and best wishes for the New Year!
