Helping with care and support throughout the community.

You are not alone!

Eastbourne Neighbourhood Watch Association is asking our members and supporters to join our ‘Good Neighbour’ plan where we ask everyone to connect with anyone who you think might be elderly, lonely or vulnerable in your area. In our present medical Covid19 emergency it is important that each of us help to bring our community closer together.

With the difficulties now upon us due to the proposed self-isolation and social distancing, it could feel as if we are forever alone – this must not be allowed to happen!

Pick up your phone and call a neighbour, go on the internet and check on the needs of the nearby vulnerable. And, don’t forget the simplest of communication tools, simply drop a note in their letter box giving them your telephone and email details.

Never in our time has it ever been so necessary to stretch out your hand of friendship, to connect with your neighbours, to offer help where it is needed.

One last note – beware of the opportunists and the dishonest who will no doubt be about. We at the Neighbourhood Watch Association will never come to your home asking for money or a payment. In cases of doubt call the police.

Together we will win!

Ken Ross, Chair, on behalf of the ‘Eastbourne NW Association’
