Rother Neighbourhood Watch group has unveiled a programme of public meetings for 2016.

They are held at Bexhill Town Hall at 2pm.

The first meeting takes place on Friday February 19 when the group is hoping that Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katie Bourne will be coming to give a talk.

On Friday May 20 there is a talk by Penny Beale on domestic violence.

Penny’s daughter was killed following an attack by her violent partner. As well as the talk, Penny will be showing a DVD.

Rother Neighbourhood Watch chairman Ted Kemp said: “I have seen this DVD and it`s a real eye opener.

“ I personally condemn this kind of abuse to any partners as my wife went through this ordeal when I met her. There are many people that are going through this treatment and there is help out there.”

He added: “At the start of February I have a number of talks around Bexhill on Crime safety and scams and meetings with Councils around Rother to get Rother Neighbourhood Watch up and running and make it stronger in your areas.

“We are the eyes and ears of the Rother Policing Team. Together we build stronger and safer communities.”

Rother Neighbourhood Watch says its aims and objectives are to prevent crime by improving security, increasing vigilance, creating and maintaining a caring community and reducing the opportunities for crime by increasing crime prevention awareness.

They also aim to assist the police in detecting crime by promoting effective communication and prompt reporting of suspicious and criminal activity and reduce undue fear of crime by providing accurate information and by promoting a sense of security and community spirit, particularly amongst the more vulnerable members of your community.
