Community safety is top of mind at Rothwell and last week, Dacland partnered with Neighbourhood Watch to present information on community safety and crime prevention to both current and future residents.
The event provided residents with an opportunity to connect with one another, as well as volunteers from Neighbourhood Watch who will provide ongoing support to the residents as they begin to form a group of their own.
At the event David, a Neighbourhood Watch Chairperson presented information about community safety and crime prevention. Both of Rothwell’s Neighbourhood Watch founders, Vijitha and Nilakshi noted that the event was very informative for both current and future residents.
“The presentation from Neighbourhood Watch helped provide information that was very useful to residents and will help our group become more active in the future,” said Vijitha.
“We really appreciate the support of Dacland who helped us organise our first Neighbourhood Watch meeting for the community. It was the perfect opportunity to meet and introduce ourselves to other residents at Rothwell too.”
After the event, residents were given the opportunity to discuss their concerns with David and Dacland representatives providing valuable feedback for how we can work together to create safe and connected communities. Dacland Marketing Executive, Susan Pennings, believes that the event will help create a safer community at Rothwell.
“Dacland initiated a partnership with Neighbourhood Watch because it connects residents with not only each other but other Neighbourhood Watch volunteers, local police officers and members of Council. This event helped residents to start forming connections that will help keep them informed and allow them to work together with the local community to create a safer place to call home,” said Susan.
“We hope that our support of this event and future Neighbourhood Watch events will help the residents at Rothwell work towards creating a safer community.”
