Sherbourne is now designated a Neighbourhood Watch Area and we have the opportunity through the NHW to provide a two way communication link between ourselves and our local Warwick Rural West Safer Neighbourhood Team.

Members will receive information about incidents, advice on safety and security and any other information that the local team think may be of use to you.

Contact details will also be available for every member to contact the team directly, if they wish to discuss a particular issue.

All residents have been contacted about whether they would like to be members of the scheme and most are now signed up. However, if you have not responded yet, you can still do so. Please just contact the co-ordinator for your road:

Carole Fidler 01926 624533 Moat Green and Watery Lane

Amber O’Brien 01926 624732 Church Road and Fulbrook Lane

Helen Whiter 01926 624681 Vicarage Lane and courtyards

Antoinette Gordon 01926 624344 Outlying Areas

or alternatively send your name, address and e-mail address to our local PCSO, Paul Coleman, (, who will then ensure that the information is passed to your local co-ordinator.

Smartwater logoFollowing the re-formation of Barford NHW, we have had contact with the Warwickshire Police Crime Prevention unit. The Police are keen to roll-out SMARTWATER as widely as possible across the county and have asked if we can roll-out within Barford.

What is SMARTWATER? Well, it's a revolutionary new property marking product, containing a blend of harmless chemicals providing it with a "forensic fingerprint", similar to DNA profiling. Once applied, SMARTWATER makes the possession of stolen property a risky business as, when subjected to ultra violet light its presence is immediately obvious. The smallest amount is enough for Police forensic scientists to verify the registered owner. All police vehicles and stations have facilities to read SMARTWATER.

There is a cost, albeit heavily discounted, of £15 per bottle which will mark 120 items.

If you wish to use SMARTWATER to help protect your valuables, it is available via the Crime Reduction Unit at Warwick Police on 01926 410111 .
