Pop-up Crime Prevention Day

Wednesday, 15 June 2022
14.15 – 16.15
Todwick Village Hall grounds by Kiveton Road

In attendance will be South Yorkshire Police, Neighbourhood Watch, and Rotherham Borough Council to listen, offer advice and hear your concerns.

Join them for a chat, refreshments and giveaways, they want to hear from you!

They will be supporting:

Have a Cuppa with a Neighbour – Help to reduce loneliness and isolation
Face-to-face contact can increase our sense of belonging and purpose. It can also increase feelings of happiness and confidence. Having a cuppa with your neighbour does not mean you need to become best friends. But it’ll make you both feel more connected.
The Calling Tree
Supporting our neighbours and wider community who are not connected on social media can be a challenge. Why not setup a calling tree in your area? It’s a lovely way to stay connected, particularly with those who are not online. Here is how it works… You call 3 people. Those 3 people call 3 people each making 9. Those 9 each call 3 people reaching 27 people. Those 27 each call 3 reaching 81 people. The phone tree builds. Call 3 people today to ask how they are doing. Reduce isolation and stay connected. There will be some postcards for you to use at the event.

There is a flyer for the event.
