Crime is why I have not been visiting your blogs recently. I am sure you understand.
It breaks my heart to say we have had a huge increase in break-ins in the homes of our little village. So much so we have had to implement day and night patrols with a few volunteers. It always seems to be the same group of people who step up to the plate without question.
We have held emergency meetings, compiled a constitution, code of conduct, created a logo, collated emergency patrol schedules, got all the necessary indemnities and ID card requirements in place, created Neighbourhood Watch and Patrolling What’sApp groups for instant emergency communication, rallied support from our Rate Payers Association for purchasing equipment necessary for patrols and even received confirmation of donations all within a week and half – not bad going.
While we fine tune our efforts, I would greatly appreciate if you have any advice or policies to help us.
I am really missing reading all your news, recipes and stories and promise to be over just as soon as the dust has settled here.
