Gloucestershire OPCC supports Neighbourhood Watch Week

The Gloucestershire Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPPC) is supporting Neighbourhood Watch Week 2020.

Neighbourhood Watch, the community support network says it's seen a surge in neighbourliness as people look out for the vulnerable and talk to those next door more than ever before - a silver lining to the cloud COVID-19 has cast over people's daily lives.

Gloucestershire OPPC believes now is a good time to say thank you and celebrate those actions our neighbours have taken no matter how small or big. There are many ways to join in:

Display a poster in your window or gifting a postcard to a neighbour

Award winning British cartoonist, Tony Husband, has created bespoke cartoons depicting kind neighbourly actions in lockdown.

Tony's cartoons can be downloaded below as posters to display in your window, or postcards to pop through a neighbour's door.

Enter the 'Neighbourliness in Lockdown' competition

Why not have a go at creating your very own cartoon depicting kind neighbourly acts and enter it in a competition to be judged by Tony himself.

You can download blank posters and blank postcards as a template for your cartoons. Create your cartoon, display it in your window or gift it to a neighbour, and email Neighbourhood Watch a digital copy (scan or photo of your cartoon). 

The winner for each age category 4- 11, 12 - 17, and adult will receive their cartoon image on a mug. Full details of the competition can be found here.

Facebook Live Quiz

Put your general knowledge to the test and join Neighbourhood Watch on June 12 at 7pm for a light-hearted Facebook Live Quiz, to be hosted by Neighbourhood Watch Network's CEO, John Hayward-Cripps.

To take part simply visit the Facebook page facebook.com/ourwatch/ at 7pm on June 12, ready with paper and pen.
