Tel: 029 2084 2034 – Email: email@example.com
“Be safe be secure.”
Neighbourhood Watch is one of the most successful crime prevention initiatives and depends on residents being aware and able to communicate information to the police authorities.
There are over a 100 members of R&M NW who are linked by email address. From time to time police alerts are sent to members in order to make their neighbours aware of risks, security advice and information regarding criminal activity in the area. Each member is encouraged to keep their immediate neighbours informed of alerts and advice.
The police in the past used a telephone system called RingMaster, which has largely become less reliable and replaced with email alerts. If you have concerns or information which you consider should be passed on to the police this can be done by contacting our local officers PC Sam Willis 07584 883599 or PCSO Laura Moore 07584 004725. If you require more immediate attention ring 029 2022 2111 or in an emergency 999. For general nuisance incidents you can ring 101 for assistance from the police or local authority.
Meetings are held with the Police and County Councillor at regular intervals. NW is included in the PACT meeting held at the Old Church Rooms, Radyr on a bi-monthly basis. All members of the community are welcome to become members of the NW and attend PACT meetings. See the R&M diary for the next meeting. If you would like to be linked through email for police alerts then contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
For local alerts from the South Wales Police go to R & M Neighbourhood Watch page

If you’ve attended an event in Wales you’re sure to have seen our members at work. From rugby matches, to motocross events, to village fetes, we provide First Aid for the people who need it.
Volunteer with St John Cymru-Wales and you could help save a life. By giving your time, together we can achieve our goal of providing a first aider on every street and ensure more people have the right knowledge to act in an emergency. Volunteering is a great way of trying something new and bringing your skills and experience to an organisation in need. We don’t just offer opportunities for members of the public to undertake first aid training and assist at events, we have a variety of roles, from a HR officer to a youth leader. Whether you are retired, on sabbatical, or can only spare a few hours between work, any support is appreciated.
If you’re interested in helping people and learning basic first aid skills, meeting new people or helping your community (and having some fun along the way!), then come and volunteer with St John.
To register your interest or join us, go to https://sjaw.org.uk/register.
For more information or if you have an event and are looking for first aid cover, please contact Aled Treharne (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call 01633 533103.
