08/07/20 9788 AN004: Update from Nailsea Neighbourhood Watch Scheme (For information)

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions our AGM which was scheduled for 24th June has had to be postponed indefinitely.

A new date will be announced as soon as a suitable venue can be found and social distancing rules applicable at that time achievable. A notice period of at least twenty eight days will be given and nomination applications for Committee positions will be able to be accepted by email to nailseanhw@gmail.com or via the Contact Us option from the Nailsea NHW website: /_contact.html.

The June edition of the Newsletter was only produced in electronic format (again due to Covid-19 restrictions). It can be viewed on our website https://www.nailseanhw.org.uk

The April edition of which some members did not receive in paper format is also available there to be downloaded.

From the ‘home’ page a list of sub-menus can be found on the left hand side and ‘newsletters’ can be selected.

As of this time we have had no response to our request for new editors. Because of this the June edition will be the last one.

Co-ordinators are permitted to forward emails to their own members, but due to GDPR guide lines we as an Association are not allowed to request contact details of other coordinators or members of other schemes. The Association does not hold the email addresses of members. Because of this:

Updates and up to date information can be accessed from our website.

We do hope that everyone is staying safe and fit and that...

WE’LL MEET AGAIN, DON’T KNOW WHERE, DON’T KNOW WHEN----but we will !

30/06/20 9788 Somerset Monthly Crime Figure Update

Dear Members,

We are changing the way we send you the crime figures that you receive every month. In future we invite you to visit https://www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/your-area/. Simply type in your address / postcode in the box at the top of the page you will be taken to your local neighbourhood policing team webpage. This will not only give you the crime figures, but also shows you the members of your local team, the local policing priorities and a way of contacting your team. You can also click on a link to see information for other areas of the Avon & Somerset constabulary. Please allow up to 30 days for the previous months statistics to become available.

26/02/20 9788 Somerset: Telephone Scams

Dear Members,

There have been a significant number of telephone scams of late, a lot of us will have received the automated message saying your subscription is due for renewal "Please press Option 1". These are scam phone calls and companies such as Amazon will never call a customer outside of their website. If it does not feel right just hang up, you can always call back.

I have attached a copy of the Little Book of Scams for you to read and save.

Attachments: the-little-book-of-big-scams.pdf  (added 26/02/2020)

We have ordered a number of these booklets from A&S Police. If you would like a copy please contact us through the "Contact Us" option above.
