Watch schemes are a popular way for people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved in working together in the community. Watch schemes operate all over the country and can:
Reduce crime and the opportunities for crime
Help and reassure vulnerable residents
Encourage good neighbourliness and closer communities
A watch scheme is a community led initiative that brings people together to address local crime and other community issues. A successful watch scheme requires close liaison between residents, the local police and other agencies.
A watch scheme can be large covering most households on an estate, or it may involve just a few local residences.
You may already be living in an area with an active scheme, in order to find out please contact your local Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) who will be able to tell you if there is one.
You can also use the postcode search on the National Neighbourhood and Home Watch website www.ourwatch.org.uk and if there is a group in your area listed you will be able to contact the scheme co-ordinator to find out about joining.
In consultation with the Uphill Village Society, Weston Town Council is carrying out repairs and improvements to the village play area.
New fencing has been installed and the play equipment repaired.

Our work in protecting and enhancing the village however continues as can be seen by the work undertaken to renew the planting around the village. If you are able to make payment of the annual subscription donation (£6 per household) by cheque payable to Uphill Village Society please deliverto 51 Uphill Road South.
