Reboot for New Norfolk Neighbourhood Watch

A NEW co-ordinator aims to reboot the New Norfolk Neighbourhood Watch Group and build links between the community, council and police. Local business operator Shemi Rubin volunteered to take on the role after the previous committee decided to call it quits after six years of trying to engage with the local police and council.

“Given the lack of interest by townsfolk, police and council working together, there is no benefit in us continuing to run New Norfolk Neighbourhood Watch in its current form,” they announced in the May 3 edition of New Norfolk and Derwent Valley News. Read their statement here.

The decision prompted Mr Rubin – who operates a laundry service and visitor centre in New Norfolk – to volunteer to reboot the Neighbourhood Watch. The first step will be a public meeting at the Derwent Valley Community House in Charlotte St, New Norfolk, at 6.30pm on Tuesday, May 21. “The squeaky wheel gets the attention,” Mr Rubin said. “New Norfolk needs to be the squeaky wheel,” he said.
