Local Conservative puts up Neighbourhood Watch signs

In April, James Garry, Conservative Spokesman for Charlton, helped to fix the first Neighbourhood Watch signs to lampposts in Eastcombe Avenue. The newly founded Neighbourhood Watch scheme will help to raise awareness about crime & safety in Eastcombe Avenue and surrounding areas. Residents of Charlton have expressed concern to James about recent criminal activity in the ward, especially household burglary. James, who is a keen participant in the scheme, said: “Charlton has always been a great place to live. Lately, however, residents feel their life-quality is compromised by burglaries and other crimes. The Conservatives are the party of law & order and we wholeheartedly support the Neighbourhood Watch scheme in its fight against crime.” James hopes that the Neighbourhood Watch scheme will reinvigorate community spirit.
