The aim of National Neighbourhood Watch (NNW) is to bring neighbours together
to create strong, friendly, active communities where crime and anti-social behaviour
are less likely to happen.
The vision is that of a caring society that is focused on trust and respect in
which people are safe from crime and enjoy a good quality of life. Neighbourhood
Watch is about making sure that fewer people feel afraid, vulnerable or isolated
in the place where they live.
The website allows you to find out more about
the association and will find a watch near you.
Ongoing Safety Projects:
||The Message in a Bottle scheme encourages those with serious medical
conditions to keep a bottle containing information about their medication
at home so that it can be quickly accessed by paramedics in an emergency. The
bottle contains personal details and a record of medicines being taken by
householders. It is stored in the fridge, where it is protected in case of fire.
The Formartine Community Safety Group has
sponsored the initiative in the Ellon area in collaboration with the Ellon Rotary Club.
Ellon will become the 15th Rotary to promote the scheme in Aberdeenshire.
Mike Barron the Rotary co-ordinator for the project in the north, said
a bottle symbol is put on the inside door of people's homes, along with another
attached to the fridge to inform emergency services of its presence.
Mike Watson, community service convener with Ellon Rotary Club, said:
"Supplies will also be made available at the local surgery and
from any Rotarian."
Councillor Alistair Strachan of the Formartine
Community Safety Group, said:
"This project really is an important element in our helping the less
able, vulnerable and elderly in the community. It can, and does, save lives."
