Local people can find out more about what’s being done to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in their part of Thanet, as part of Not In My Neighbourhood week.

The Home Office led initiative takes place from Monday 2 – Friday 6 November and aims to increase public confidence in the work being done by the police and local organisations, such as the council, to make communities safer.

In Thanet, this work is coordinated by the Thanet Community Safety Partnership, which is made up of a range of organisations, all of whom work to make Thanet a safer place to live, work and visit.

During Not In My Neighbourhood Week, the partnership will be visiting local communities. On Monday 2 November, they will be in Cecil Square, Margate, with a visit to Cliftonville, by Tesco in Northdown Road, on Tuesday 3 November. On Wednesday 4 November, the bus will be in Birchington, in the bays closest to the supermarket, and on Friday 6 November, it will be in Ramsgate High Street. On each of these days, it will be in the locations between 10am and 4pm.

On Thursday 5 November, the bus will be in both Westwood Cross, in the car park, between 10am and 12pm, followed by Broadstairs, in the bays closest to Iceland, between 12.30pm and 4pm.

People can come and speak to local police and community safety officers, Connexions workers and many more agencies, and can even take part in the Safer Thanet survey. They will also be asked to give their top three likes and dislikes on the “Not In My Neighbourhood” and “Like In My Neighbourhood” walls.

Lacy Dixon, Community Safety Coordinator, said: “We’re already doing a huge amount of work to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in different neighbourhoods across Thanet and this is your opportunity to come along and find out more about that work. It’s also your chance to tell us what’s good in your local area and what’s a problem for you. The people who can take action to deal with these problems will be taking part in Not In My Neighbourhood Week, so your issues will be listened to and action will be taken.”
