Membership of Langton Way Association also enrols you in the local Neighbourhood Watch; this may also reduce your home insurance premium if declared.
At the 2019 AGM, we had a ‘Burglary’ workshop that was presented by Cheryl Spruce, the Greenwich Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator.
It was a very useful and informative presentation and all members who were present at the AGM were very engaged as there was a lot to take in. We didn’t have time for the whole presentation but Cheryl did provide us with some copies of the recent ‘Phone Scams’ booklet and also some NW stickers. Contact Alex if you would like a copy of the booklet or a sticker.
One of the main points that came out of the presentation was installing a ‘Ring’ doorbell which is basically a video doorbell that you can easily install yourself and you are able to answer the door and check in on your home at anytime from anywhere using an app on your phone. Whether you’re in the garden or halfway around the world. It also has the advantage for observing who may be acting suspiciously around your property. For a small additional fee you are able to store video content on the cloud that you can access later should there be anything you need to pass onto the police.

Please remember that it is always good practice to report anything suspicious to the local community police. They will act on reports so please don’t think that they won’t.
If you use Twitter then this is a good way of reporting something and it means you don’t have to call and be kept waiting on a phone for ages.
