Westerleigh Village's Neighbourhood Watch is a local organisation working for all the village and with the local Police force to help prevent crime. We and the Police particularly want to encourage Postcode marking of valuable property. This allows Police to return recovered stolen property and also aids in convicting the criminals.

The 'Watch' also is involved in many local activities to fund other projects that enhance the village. These have included provision of an annual Christmas tree and lights, planting of spring daffodils to brighten the local spring scenery. Money has been raised with a variety of community social events including Quiz nights, Murder Mystery events, 'American Suppers', barbecues and treasure hunts.

If you are interested in Police matters, visit the local Police website (, enter your postcode, and read more news about the area, and reports from the local beat manager.

Your Officers for 2019-20 are Brian Cottrell (Chairman) and Robert Cole (Treasurer). We need a secretary: are you interested? If so, please contact Rob Cole (01454 311859).
