Community minded residents from across Cheshire came together for the Cheshire Neighbourhood Watch Association's (CNWA) second Annual General Meeting.

All Cheshire Neighbourhood Watch coordinators were invited to attend the evening event on 6 November at Cheshire Constabulary headquarters in Winsford.

As well as the 'Chair's Report' by Ian Walton and guest presentations by Superintendent Peter Crowcroft and Mark Cotton from Cheshire Constabulary, John Hayward-Cripps, CEO of the national association Neighbourhood Watch Network travelled up from London to attend the AGM.

PCC David Keane closed the meeting, and Chief Constable Darren Martland was also in attendance.

As part of the AGM winners were announced for the first Cheshire Neighbourhood Watch Association Neighbour Awards.

The invitation to nominate an individual was sent out to all Alert users and included the chance to nominate a 'Neighbourly Neighbour of the Year' for those who aren't currently part of a Neighbourhood Watch scheme. All individuals nominated were invited to the AGM, along with the person who nominated them, and received a certificate. The winners also received a 'Winner certificate' along with a £20 voucher.

The awards were split into four categories:
  • Cheshire Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator of the Year – Winner: Gerald Watts
  • Cheshire New Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator of the Year – Winner: Dave Brown
  • Cheshire Neighbourly Neighbour of the Year – Winner: William Ferris
  • Cheshire Public Official – Winner: Cllr Richard Beacham
The CNWA also thanked three recently retired Neighbourhood Watch Coordinators who were put forward for an award: Keith Buckley, Brian Gray and Gordon Pearce, with a certificate and £20 voucher.

Superintendent Pete Crowcroft said: "Our Neighbourhood Watch Coordinators play a vital role in fighting crime in our community. They are not only our eyes and ears but their neighbours too, helping to keep them safe and informed. They truly do deserve the recognition for their selfless community spirit."

Attached to this message are various presentations from the evening, along with the minutes of the AGM.
