To help celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Neighbourhood Watch scheme, the Swivel Club in Rushden has supplied the local branch committee members with clothing and equipment.
As the members of Neighbourhood Watch are out in all weather, the Swivel Club has provided t-shirts, sweat shirts and hi-vis jackets as well as powerful torches.
East Northamptonshire Neighbourhood Watch manager Terry Savill said: “I’ve been involved with Neighbourhood Watch for 18 years now, I started out in my own street as a co-ordinator and was then asked to join the management team and my involvement grew from there. We represent Northamptonshire at the East Midlands forum, which includes Wellingborough and Rushden.
“Recently, we launched Dog Watch, which looks at more environmental issues that face the public and is steadily growing, currently in excess of 700 members.
“I’d like to thank the Swivel Club for their kind donation. It really does make a difference to have attire which identifies us as Neighbourhood Watch.”
