Januarys Bumper Edition Newsletter!

January's newsletter is a bumper edition with extra focus pages on the forthcoming "Councillor Elections", and our "Community Safety Scheme".

As there will be vacancies on Swepstone Parish Council this May, we are looking for new Councillors to support our Parish. If you're unsure about the role of a parish councillor, please read a brief overview of the role in the newsletter that came through your door or via this website or come to our next meeting on the 20th February at 8:00 (Swepstone Church Hall).

The parish has two community safety champions who have attended NWLDC training and have a range of equipment which is available FREE to residents of Swepstone and Newton Burgoland.

The equipment includes, shed and window alarms, security marking pens and cycle and lawnmower security stickers. In addition, there are personal alarms, 'purse bells' and car key pouches.

Police and crime prevention officers stress that this initiative is to support their work and not replace it. They advise that most Janburglaries are opportunist and taking a few simple steps to protect property will deter thieves.

We hope that as many people as possible will take advantage of the items available for the Community Safety Scheme as funding for the scheme is limited.

What do I do next?

Take a look at the items available either from your delivery or on this website, and contact the parish clerk with the items you are interested in and your address details - a community champion will arrange collection or delivery.
