Community Safety Champions Rewarded

Geoff Pegg, director of operations at the Wycombe District Neighbourhood Watch Association, and Stan Jones, Chairman, were presented with certificates at Bucks County Council’s AGM on Thursday, registering the group as an official Friends Against Scams organisation.

Friends Against Scams is a national Trading Standards initiative which aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by encouraging communities to take a stand by empowering them to recognise and know how to deal with potential scams.

The presentation also recognised Geoff’s personal commitment to the cause and his work in overseeing the training of members of the High Wycombe group to proactively go out and speak to local communities about how to protect themselves.

WDNHWA has a table display of useful crime prevention leaflets outside one of the main mosques in High Wycombe (Jubilee Road, Castlefield, & Totteridge Road) by rotation, overlapping the time of Friday prayers – weather permitting during the summer, spring, and autumn.

WDNHWA is delighted to announce that a new NHW scheme has been started for the 4000 students of Bucks New University who live in the town. Despite the relative safety of our district for students, they are often targeted by thieves and it is hoped that this scheme will help keep them as safe as possible. This is by far the largest NHW scheme in Wycombe, and it is run by the Volunteers Department of the Students’ Union, who aim to extend it to those elsewhere in the district very soon.
