Neighbourhood Watch is a partnership where people come together to make their communities safer. It involves the Police, Community Safety departments of local authorities, other voluntary organisations and, above all, individuals and families who want to make their neighbourhoods better places to live. It aims to help people protect themselves and their properties and to reduce the fear of crime by means of improved home security, greater vigilance, accurate reporting of suspicious incidents to the police and by fostering a community spirit. If you would like to be part of a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in your area, contact the Crime Prevention Co-ordinator at your nearest police station, who will give you further information or will put you in contact with the Neighbourhood Watch Co-ordinator of the established scheme.

The partnership members identify the most prolific individuals who are committing crime or acting in an anti social manner in their premises at target meetings.
The WRCI Retail Business Crime Advisors, in conjunction with the local police then prepare target packages.
Members are then provided with the target packages, which contain photographs of these individuals and information about the methods they use to commit crime, their behaviour and known risk factors.

Old Meeting United Reformed Church
This plain but much loved building was built in 1726 but its story goes back to 1687, the year after Nicholas Chamberlaine became Squire of Bedworth.
The five miles between Coventry and Bedworth is an important part of Bedworth’s history because of the passing of the Five Mile Act in 1665.
This forbade any assembly of non conformist church goers for worship and preaching within five miles of a corporate town such as Coventry.
The centre of Bedworth is exactly five miles from Coventry, the old five mile post still standing at the entrance to the almshouses.
