From your Parish Council



Talaton joined this national crime fighting scheme in the late 1980’s and thanks to a small team of co-ordinators it has served the village well over the years. Fortunately, crime rates are low in our area but should we only be concerned about crime?


What about other emergencies when our neighbours may need help? Why wait for an emergency when there are plenty of occasions when people need help but do we like to ask for it? What can we do to support each other on an everyday basis?


Your Parish Councillors think it’s time to ask the question: -


How does Neighbourhood Watch

work for us in the 21st Century?

Phil Wise

from the

Devon & Cornwall Community Association

will answer the question at a public meeting on


Wednesday 17 May


Talaton Parish Hall


Please come along to find out how

we can help each other
