Neighbourhood Alert System – Update

12th February 2017 | Written by ILB | Categories : reviews

Here’s our updated list following on from our article about the Neighbourhood Alert System, which is helping to prevent crime in Bramhall and Cheadle Hulme.

Neighbourhood Alert System

Following the recent thefts and break-ins around our villages, I Love Cheadle Hulme and I Love Bramhall have set up a Neighbourhood Alert System in the area.

Neighbourhood Alert System

We have encouraged people to step forward to be coordinators on their roads and invite their neighbours to join a  WhatsApp group where you will be able to share information or any concerns you have. If someone’s alarm has been going off, or you notice suspicious activity a simple message in the group can make sure neighbours are aware and are alert. This isn’t a replacement of the existing Neighbour Watch Schemes but acts as an instant way to communicate with your neighbours and share information with the police.

We have had a great response from the local residents joining the WhatsApp groups and co-ordinators stepping forward, but we need more!

Here’s the list for Bramhall so far, so if you are interested in joining your roads WhatsApp group chat please get in contact:

  • * Abingdon Rd (1-23)
  • * Albany Rd
  • * Bramhall Lane South (78-98 & 55-71)
  • * Bramley Close
  • * Bramley Rd (1 – 19)
  • * Bridge Lane (2 -20)
  • * Canberra Rd
  • * Carrwood Rd
  • * Elmsway
  • * Eskdale (42-60 & 45-61)
  • * Hartington Rd
  • * Kitts Moss Lane
  • * Ladybrook Rd (Mid)
  • * Larchway
  • * Lees Rd
  • * Linden Grove
  • * Mayfield Rd
  • * North Park Rd (1-26)

  • * Perth Close
  • * Queensgate

We will NOT make the names and phone numbers of co-ordinators public, so please get in touch with Wendy for Bramhall hello@ilovebramhall.com and Kate for Cheadle Hulme hello@ilovecheadlehulme.com for more information.

Please head to the I Love Cheadle Hulme for the Cheadle Hulme Roads.

Please note that NO contact details with be shared with ANYONE except your coordinator.

The coordinator’s role is not particularly daunting, but would involve the following :

  • * Visiting each house and canvass neighbours encouraging them to join the WhatsApp scheme. We have designed a leaflet for you to download here Neighbourhood Alert System – PDF and we have had 5000 printed so people can use them (Neighbours who do not have a mobile phone can give home telephone numbers)
  • * Circulating information received from the police and vice versa
  • * Creating a ‘safety net’ with your neighbours to aid faster communication if you are a victim of crime, or alarms go off, or neighbours see suspicious activity on their road /street/lane etc.
  • * Attending neighbourhood watch meetings with other coordinators, police and local councillors.

Let’s get neighbours talking again!

Always Report. Always.

We find it reassuring to know that our policing team DO take any reports of thefts and intruders very seriously. Even if nothing is taken, or if it was just an unlocked car rifled through, the police need to know about it –  so local policing teams can respond to patterns or frequencies. However, both officers were also quick to reassure residents that action IS taken and arrests HAVE been made – although that can’t always be made public. Even the slightest suspicion of anti-social behaviour or criminal activity should be reported on 101 – and ALWAYS 999 for a crime in progress or person in danger.

Police

 

We have been liaising with our local PCSO – Maureen Crehan and she will gladly attend any meetings or answer any question you may have. Her email is 65527@gmp.police.uk and phone number 0161 439 2189 

So let’s get something positive from this – build our community spirit and keep Cheadle Hulme and Bramhall as sought-after, friendly places to live and work.
