This is Goodbye from us and our wonderful, amazing, selfless, hard working team.

For almost 5 years, our work has been exemplary, so much so that people are forever thinking we are the Police (which we are not) working within guidelines, keeping our pages and all we do within the law, controlling comments, and always helping everyone within moments of them messaging our pages. From answering questions and pointing people in the right direction, or just to be a helping hand. We have also have to deal with those in the community that feel the need to abuse the team.

Whilst some people will miss our pages, in the main many followers are just bashing each other in comments. The later spoiling it for the few!

Our intention was to have engagement with the Police, so they could keep communities up to date in realtime and engage more directly with people.

We have had amazing support from some Officers of all rank, right down to pcso’s its only a handful and not enough to make that difference.

The West Mercia PCC has been a tower of support for what we have done but one person giving us support is not enough.

Many hours have been spent in meetings, putting up signs, running the pages almost 24/7 thanks to our amazing team, who give their time free of charge, whilst doing their job that pays the bills.

National Neighbourhood Watch do not offer any support, and its only because of the West Mercia Force Area Neighbourhood Watch, that this area has worked hard to obtain window stickers, and street signs, with thanks to the PCC for his very kind donations and support.

We set up “WeAlert and the take up has been very poor. A FREE app that helps join your street together, without adverts, and you can block out any unwanted chatter of the street you don’t want to hear about, and just hear about crime. Lots of work went into setting up every Police SNT area, and all the other Groups needed. All people have to do is use it. Some Police Officers have Groups, and some Street Schemes have a Group.

COVID-19 is a terrible time for us all, and all communities should be standing together to help. It’s been just a sad time for us to see that communities do not stand together. It’s only a handful of people that are working their socks off to bring communities help at this time, we think you are amazing people.

One Street posted letters though 150 doors, to bring neighbours together that could help each other, only 11 people joined the scheme.

A Neighbourhood Watch Scheme asked all houses in the street to help with fabric, over 100 homes, and only 6 found it in their hearts to help.

We were told in Droitwich they could not get help to deliver prescriptions, we put a call out on the page and 20 people came back wanting to help, just 20 in Droitwich! Now sadly we have to tell them all Thank You for saying you can help but the organisation that is running it, can not take them because they can not work out how to manage it. We did offer our Admin skills to do this, but Red Tape it seems is very hard to break, even in these terrible times when we need to look past it and get on with helping, instead of putting up road blocks.

On a Thursday, almost every home will have someone stood at their door, and they will clap for the NHS and key workers, they will then go indoors, close the door and not help.

Can we see this rebuilding Neighbourhood’s well you answer that for yourself.

To everyone that has helped us, and for those that have stepped forward to help communities, to every frontline worker from the amazing NHS who have to deal with such sadness and long hours (and still smile and offer to help on their days off), to shops and companies open keeping us in food etc., to Postmen and Women, Care Workers, Bin Men, Vets, Delivery Drivers, and so many more. THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE

To all the people that are giving up time to make bags, ear savers, face shields, the list is endless, and paying for materials out of their own pockets, that due to being off work are already empty. THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE

To everyone that is supporting the elderly, or vulnerable that have to be at home, seeing that they have food etc., THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE


Apart from stopping at home to stay safe, and save lives, what will you be able to look back on and say you helped with? When your community needed your support what did you do? KINDNESS COSTS NOTHING

Stay Safe everyone, its been hard, but a pleasure to have serviced West Mercia communities.

Neighbourhood Watch Information For Droitwich Spa and surrounding area

Droitwich NHW, is the collective Facebook presence for Neighbourhood Watch schemes in Droitwich.

Our Facebook page is used to share reports, warnings and information from the people of Droitwich, the Police and Local Authority related to Safty, Crime and Crime Prevention.

Recognised by the Police and Local Authorities, Neighbourhood Watch has nothing to do with either.

Neighbourhood Watch, is made up of groups of neighbours looking out for each other, that is you.

Don’t let criminals get away with it, setting up a street level schemes in your neighbourhood, being nosey and reporting it might just make a difference. It’s really easy to setup.
