Hethersett district councillor Leslie Dale is leading the initiative, which results from a recent safer neighbourhood action panel meeting.

“I am most heartened by the co-operation of Hethersett Parish Council in their allowing the use of the parish newsletter to assist in this trawl for new and replacement Homewatch co-ordinators,” he said.

“National government increasingly seeks to have public-funded bodies working in close harmony and is inclined to reward good performance with extra funding. The positive attitude of the HPC can only to serve to demonstrate that the forthcoming local area agreement is likely to be a productive one.”

Local PCSO Kamesh Alothman said although the Thickthorn area accounted for many of

the reported crimes, the

village is still subject to occasional incidents of theft and damage.

“Nevertheless, south Norfolk has almost the lowest crime statistics in Britain and the Hethersett area is clearly

one of the safest places in Britain to live,” he added.
