After the success of the two events earlier this year, Richmond Police and the Safer Neighbourhood Board are pleased to be able to invite you to the autumn ‘Knowledge Night’ events.
The topics covered will be:-
1. Moped Enabled Crime – the problem and the police response (Inspector John Evans)
2. Autumn Nights (a crime-free run-up to Christmas) – Detective Inspector Amanda Mawhinney)
3. A Scam Demonstration – Sgt Les Jackson
4. Fly-tipping: what you can do – PC Vanessa Figg
The topics for these evening events have been selected to offer both practical advice around tackling crime and making your communities and NHW areas safer, but also to give you the inside track on what the police are doing as we approach a very busy time of year both in terms of activities and crime.
The events are aimed at coordinators, to share information with their membership, but we very much welcome NHW members as well, if they would like to come.
I will be at the venues from 1830, so if you have a particular concern that you wish to discuss before the evening gets underway, please feel free to come and speak.
Please confirm with Carole Atkinson firstname.lastname@example.org if you are attending in order that we can arrange appropriate refreshments.

The last event at York House was very successful and I have included some feedback revived from some of our NHW that attended.
Just wanted to express my appreciation to you and all the team for the information night last week.
It was incredibly useful and it was also very uplifting to see all of you guys putting together a very slick yet charming info event. Impressive and reassuring!
Apologies that I had to leave early but even that first hour was packed with vital guidance.
Thanks again and all the best

Dear Neighbourhood Watch members, friends and neighbours,
Last night my husband and I attended the ‘Knowledge Evening’ at York House. It was absolutely brilliant – 4 excellent speakers, lots of laughter, we learnt a lot and……they gave us delicious cake and drinks too! The hall was packed. The meeting was for Neighbourhood Watch coordinators, Neighbourhood Watch members and also for any other member of the general public who might be interested.
As you can see from the flyer below, the Knowledge Evening is going to be repeated on 17th November, in Barnes. I know it is further for you to travel, but do go if you can. You certainly won’t regret it. Yesterday’s meeting was so interesting – the best police presentations I’ve ever been to. All the subject covered were particularly relevant to our part of the borough.
Margaret Warden (Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator)
Good morning All,
I hope Margaret Warden will forgive me if I send you her message regarding the Knowledge Evening this week, as it says everything I was planning to say, only better:
I am glad I made the effort to go as it was a brilliant evening – do try and attend the next one if you can at Barnes or if there is a future local one I will let you know.
