Brize Norton Parish Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) is a new scheme aimed at creating safer neighbourhoods within the Brize Norton Parish and further build community spirit and cohesion, improving upon the existing quality of life and the local environment. By sharing and acting upon crime prevention advice, you can play an important role in helping us to reduce crime or fear of crime in your area. Being part of the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme can:
- Reduce / prevent local crime and disorder
- Reduce fear of crime
- Address issues relating to antisocial behaviour
- Assist in the detection and apprehension of criminals through members providing information to the police
My name is Jim, and I have lived in the local area since 2003 and Brize Norton since 2019. I’m keen to improve upon the already positive community spirit and bring unity to the ‘whole’ of the newly expanded Brize Norton Village, fostering a caring, neighbourly attitude to improve the wider resilience and friendliness of the area.
The vision for the Brize Norton NHW scheme is to have numerous Area/Street coordinators working in collaboration with myself as Area Coordinator, ultimately working as a team to develop and manage this project long-term.

There is also the opportunity to send me a message by selecting “email scheme coordinator” if you have any questions, queries, and feedback.
The Parish Council and I look forward to residents joining the scheme and Street Coordinators stepping forward, a role which requires no effort, other than being able to speak to your neighbours! Thank you.
