17/8  Monday 8 p.m.  Wraysbury Road. Wraysbury.  Burglary.  A witness reported hearing his neighbours burglar alarm sounding and looked outside.  They saw 2 men running away from the property and getting into a black VW Golf and driving away.  They went to the house and found the rear patio doors forced.  The offenders had searched the bedrooms, including the wardrobes and chests of drawers as well as a desk in the office.  Not yet known if anything stolen, possibly some jewellery and cash.  Our Opportunist thieves know that people have safe’s installed in the base of wardrobes and search them in case there is one.  Safes are only as secure, as the substance into which they are secured.  Wardrobes are generally made of Chipboard / MDF and safes can easily be levered out.  Be aware of this.  Ref.

18/8  Tuesday 10.125 a.m.  Oast House Close, Wraysbury.  Blue recycling bin stolen.  Please be aware that black dustbin bags and blue recycling bins are often stolen, but put back later, so owners think they have just been misplaced.  Often they are removed and the contents examined to see if there is any useful personal information / bank statements / utility bills etc.  If anything containing personal information is placed in a re-cycling bin, it must be shredded, or at least torn into many pieces.  Ref. No:  43200257270

No:  43200258700.  If you live nearby, can you check any video doorbell / CCTV video footage you may have.  If it shows anything suspicious, please forward it to the SR email above quoting the ref.

The lockdown has resulted in many neighbourhoods drawing closer together in supporting local residents with needs, and in neighbours spending a lot more time talking to each other over fences or across the road. This has improved community spirit to no end, and a great way to keep this spirit alive is for residents to join their local Neighbourhood Watch scheme, or start up a new scheme if there is not already one covering their respective street.

Neighbourhood Watch is not just about looking out the window and being alert for any crime in the neighbourhood, it is much more than that. It serves as a valuable resource for crime prevention, in supporting the Police with things such as local home security surveys, installing crime prevention aids in homes for the vulnerable and elderly especially, helping those vulnerable and elderly residents with any other needs, and in drawing residents together in supporting one another.
The Windsor & Ascot NHW Association is making great strides in reactivating and expanding Neighbourhood Watch within the various parishes of Windsor & Ascot. Its Facebook page (@WindsorAscotNHW) is receiving multiple enquiries from interested residents and serves as a means to highlight local issues relating to crime and residents in need. New NHW schemes are continuously being set up with active Coordinators, and residents within those scheme areas can now benefit from the new initiatives being introduced by Neighbourhood Watch and Thames Valley Police.
To search for your nearest NHW scheme, or to set up a new scheme, visit and enter your postcode. 

For any questions relating to Neighbourhood Watch please contact the Windsor & Ascot NHW Association at
