A good message – Only one crime to report – a car window smashed and a sports bag which had been left on display searched.



Just to make you all aware that the RBWM Budget is currently out for consultation, for more information please see the message below:

We are consulting on our draft budget for the next financial year. There’s still time to include comments in the consultation so we wanted to share how you can get involved.  Please visit

Individually, you may have also received a letter with information about the budget, as we sent out a random sample of letters to residents.

The consultation responses will be reviewed and taken into account when the budget is proposed at Cabinet on Thursday 4 February.

The draft budget sets out how your council tax will be spent and how we invest in services for you.


Hi Jeff,

Just to let you know.   I just had an automated call from Amazon.  They asked me if I had placed an order for an I Phone..  If not press 1 for yes or 2 to cancel.  I pressed 2 and then a foreign call centre asked me if I had a computer, laptop, tablet or a mobile phone.  I answered no and asked them not to call me as my telephone number was ex-directory.

Meanwhile, I have deleted my payment details from Amazon to be on the safe side.

Thought you would like to know as very worrying for older people especially.

Kind Regards

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 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
