Neighbourhood Wardens News

Published: 09 December 2020

Billingshurst Parish Council extends a warm welcome to the newest Neighbourhood Warden Julie Green who started work in the parish in December 2020.  Julie brings with her a wealth of experience as she was previously a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) with Sussex Police and is a trained nurse.

The Neighbourhood Warden Scheme was set up to provide a reassuring presence in the community. Wardens can deal with issues such as anti-social behaviour, dog fouling and environmental crime. They engage with local schools, run activities for young people and liaise with vulnerable / elderly residents. Wardens offer advice on crime prevention and refer crime incidents to the police, acting as professional witnesses. They are not, however, a replacement for the police, nor are they an emergency service. The Billingshurst Warden scheme is funded by Billingshurst Parish Council and managed by Horsham District Council.

If you would like to contact either Julie or Barry, you can do so by emailing billingshurstwardens@horsham.gov.uk or calling Julie on 07795 051529 or Barry on 07795 051516.
