Across my Aldridge-Brownhills constituency we are splendidly served by a large network of volunteers who organise Neighbourhood Watch.

This week we celebrate Neighbourhood Watch Week and it gives me the opportunity to thank everyone who volunteers to manage the network.

A key element of Neighbourhood Watch is that they make people feel less afraid, vulnerable or isolated in the communities in which they live.

Thank you to all the volunteers of Neighbourhood Watch for their time and dedication to our local community.
