We urgently need to find a community volunteer to take on the role of Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator, as if no replacement is found by Dec 31 the program will be cancelled from our neighbourhood.
We believe this program is well worth our efforts in trying to save, as it affects the safety and wellness of our community as a whole.
