FIRST A message from Valerie Pike, the Chair of the Windsor & Ascot NHW Association:

Hi Jeff,

Please could you put out a request from for a volunteer handyman to help us with our work to protect vulnerable and elderly residents ?

The Windsor & Ascot NHW Association has some additional security devices to prevent burglaries, but these need to be fixed to properties and the police cannot do that.  These include new Spyholes, for elderly residents, who can no longer reach the ones they have.  Door chains and door bars, for both wooden and UVPC front doors, for those residents who don’t have them and fake CCTV cameras, to attach to the house over front doors.

We really need this help.  Anyone who does offer to assist us, will of course have to be interviewed and DBS checked

Can anyone who is interested please get in touch with me  via

Many thanks


NEXT:  The Cancer Support Network:  Have you been affected by Cancer ?

Meeting other people with similar experiences can be invaluable

The aim of the Cancer Support Network and Cancer Champions project is to support people with cancer at any point along their journey. It also aims to support the wider family network.

The scheme is for anyone with cancer, or those supporting them, located in or around the Berkshire boroughs of Wokingham, Bracknell, Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead. The project will bring together information and resources as well as offer emotional support through a volunteer network, offering a listening ear.

Monthly meet-ups are also available, bringing together people in the community affected by cancer, giving them the opportunity to meet each other and share experiences. People can access the service through a referral. This may be through a GP, health professional, family member or self-referral.  Click the link below to access our referral form

which you can complete and send to us either through the post or via email

Eyes, ears.....and Brain



Hi, I am Valerie Pike, Chair of Windsor & Ascot NHW Association. The Association was formed in September 2019 and our objective was simply to help residents. In setting up the Association, we asked
How can each of us
·       help to make our community safer?
·       improve its spirit and neighbourliness?
·       help the Police to reduce local crime?
·       make our own home security better?
Starting up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your street is easy, and it’s free. Police statistics show that a Neighbourhood Watch scheme significantly reduces the probability of your house being burgled.
Neighbourhood Watch is about neighbourliness and making our communities and homes safer. It’s about being friendly and caring, and watching out for the elderly and vulnerable too.

Members of Neighbourhood Watch are assisted in a number of ways, including  having  free  home  security  surveys  conducted  by  a  local PCSO, to identify any areas in which security can be improved, and to advise  on  optimum  ways  to  safeguard  against  crime  and  improve personal and household security
But most of all Neighbourhood Watch is about helping the Police to keep us safe. They need the support of people who care. If that’s you - join us now!
Please contact us on and we will be delighted to assist.
