Whittlesey and District Neighbourhood Watch

Creating safer, stronger and active communities


Our Watch

Whittlesey and District Neighbourhood Watch is about local people working together to create safer, attractive and friendly place to live. We aim to make our area a place where crime is less likely to happen.

Our group is owned and run by our community and reflects our needs.

The Neighbourhood Watch scheme is divided into areas each led by a volunteer co-ordinator. These are volunteers from the local community who take on the role of linking the community to the police. By being more aware of local issues, sharing information and advice, local residents are able to develop closer and more effective links with the police and also help to reassure and support vulnerable households.

Anyone can reach the police quickly and easily in an emergency by dialing 999, or in a non-emergency on 101. Neighbourhood Watch helps you, and your neighbours, give your local police a much clearer sense of your needs and local issues. Neighbourhood Watch group members know their communities well. The police and other organisations can then take action based on this knowledge.

The police do not run Neighbourhood Watch schemes, but are glad to get input and clear guidance on local needs from them. Watch members are active citizens who want to help their communities. 

Parking Problems


Motor vehicle ownership has continued to increase and, with the same amount of parking space available, this has resulted in problems for both drivers and non-drivers. Parking has become a major source of friction and often leads to disputes, ill-will and a general lack of respect for each other. Worse still there seems to have been an increase in the amount of selfish and thoughtless parking where drivers only seem to consider their own priorities and ignore the effects their actions may have on others.


This article is aimed at helping you to appreciate some of the complexities that surround our parking laws.

Be Aware!

A person has approached a Whittlesey resident at their today, 13th March 2017 to see if gutters needed cleaning. The person seemed to want to know if the resident was alone and asked questions apparently trying to establish if they were likely to be on their own later in the day. When their offer of work was refused they later returned to the property anyway and began putting their ladders in the garden and acting in a manner which intimidated the resident. The police were called and attended very rapidly. The two men had disappeared in the meantime, probably when they were aware the police were in the area. There were two men both wearing flurescant jackets. They travelled in a small white van with a 59 number plate.

If you see something similar in your area please contact the police on 101 or use 999 if:

  1. it's an emergency.
  2. a crime is in progress.
  3. someone suspected of a crime is nearby.
  4. there is danger to life.
  5. violence is being used or threatened.
