The Hughenden Neighbourhood Action Group is active in the area, with the objective to assist the police in controlling matters of concern in the Parish, and to engage residents in improving the environment. Activities undertaken by NAG include regular Speedwatch sessions, whereby members of NAG and community volunteers man the Vehicle Aided Sign which displays the speed of a vehicle on approach, noting details of any speeding vehicles which are passed on to the police who then send a warning letter to the speeding motorist. NAG also coordinate litter picking sessions, encouraging residents to keep the village and countryside tidy, as well as reporting antisocial behaviour and reporting any criminal damage in the village.
Neighbourhood Watch is a community based organisation, and most roads in the village are covered by a road co-ordinator. Membership is free, and members are encouraged to receive the police ‘Ringmaster’ messages via the co-ordinator and to display the door stickers to assist in keeping the village a low crime area. Success has been achieved in most areas of crime: burglary, anti-social behaviour and car crime are rare, and thanks to the ‘no cold calling’ stickers, doorstep crime is also rare. We want to keep it this way!
If you do not receive a visit from your road co-ordinator, but wish to become involved, please contact our local area co-ordinator who lives in the village: Stan Jones on 01494 716278.
