Welcome to the Aldercar Wood Neighbourhood Watch - Great Horkesley.

This Neighbourhood Watch was originally set up to cover the boundary of the historical Aldercar Wood area in the Village of Great Horkesley. We now broadcast to all parts of the village and anyone who wishes to be notified about criminal activity, and to receive advice on how to prevent crime, are very welcome to join.

To become a member of Neighbourhood Watch, please email your Name and Postal Address to aldercarwoodnw@gmail.com.


If you are reluctant to report what you think is criminal activity, or just want to report your suspicians, then CRIMESTOPPERS may be the organisation you are looking for. Just a phone call enables someone to record what you know, or think you know, whilst giving you total anonymity. Absolutely nothing about you will be recorded or communicated to the authorities. Follow this link to learn more - crimestoppers-uk.org.

If you have been a victim of crime and feel that you need some help, Victim Support is the organisation you should contact. Follow this link to learn more - www.essexvictimsgateway.org
