Volunteers to help RNHW

http://lyndonhealth.nhs.uk/services/obesity-management-clinic Rutland Neighbourhood Watch Association is appealing for additional volunteers to help manage its popular smartphone app.

http://netgents.com/25448-kamagra-oral-jelly-price-in-south-africa.html The Rutland Neighbourhood Watch app is free to all members of the public, and to date has enjoyed over 13,000 downloads.  The app has speed phone links to a range of emergency services and victim support agencies, and notifies users of criminal incidents and threats in the county.  It also offers a range of other useful links and sources of public information, making it a must-have app for all users of smartphones in Rutland.

The app plays an important role in supporting the police in their fight against crime and anti-social behaviour, and it has the support of Leicestershire Police, Rutland County Council and the new Police and Crime Commissioner.  It is regularly used by local NHW coordinators throughout the county to disseminate information to their local communities.

The Association is also seeking  suitable volunteers to serve as Trustees or to join the small team responsible for the organisation of its events and activities.  Newly elected Chairman, Adrian Gombault, said: ” The Association has performed a valuable role in representing, coordinating and supporting the work of individual NHW groups across Rutland over its twenty or so years of existence.  Recent retirements and changes in personnel have created the opportunity for new faces to join the team and continue this important and rewarding work.  The smartphone app, in particular, has been an outstanding success, and I would very much like to take it now to the next level.  But this can only happen if we obtain the fresh volunteer support we are seeking. ”

Anyone who is interested in helping Rutland Neighbourhood Watch Association in any of the above roles is asked to contact  the Association by emailing rutlandnhw@gmail.com.
