Hello to all Students and Young People

Alert message sent 16/03/2019 11:58:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch in Nottinghamshire

Dear Citizen

I am writing to you as you have registered with Neighbourhood Alert and are currently a student or young person within the Nottinghamshire area. As well as yourself, I am writing to all other students and young people who have signed up to receive alerts and want to reach out to you all.

I am currently a third-year student at the University of Nottingham studying Sociology and Criminology. I volunteer for NottsWatch, which is the association that works with the police, council and other organisations to support neighbourhood watch throughout our city and county. This opportunity means that I can promote community safety and well-being messages to people who have signed up to neighbourhood alert.  As a student myself I am familiar with the challenges and obstacles a university life can bring and I am also consciously aware of wide-spread crime occurring within the areas of student accommodation, such as Lenton and Beeston.

As an organisation, we want to make these alerts more accommodating to students and the younger generation by addressing topics and providing information within the newsletters each week that will help students with their health, safety and well-being within the student community and areas. Although having around 60,000 students attending The University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University, there are currently only 551 students signed up to receive these alerts. We would love to increase the number of people benefitting from our free messages so , if you could encourage any friends/ family to sign up to neighbourhood alert. that would be a great help! Simply ask them to visit and click on “Register”.

We hope the information we provide you with will be useful and interesting for keeping happy and safe within Nottinghamshire, however we would love to hear what types of information you would want to see in the newsletters and alerts. If you have any ideas, please let us know by using the reply button below.
