Rosebank Neighbourhood Watch chairperson Marc Gammon recently sent out a mail about their system of providing refreshments to the ADT bicycle patrol guards for the area. He wrote:
There is no doubt that the patrollers really appreciate the gesture, and we have noticed that the turn-over of patrollers has decreased as the patrollers feel cared for by the community they are serving.
… team of volunteers from the community… take it in turns to provide coffee and sandwiches to the patrollers daily, where each person provides this for a week at a time.
I think this is a fantastic idea – can we do the same in Little Mowbray? I reckon we will need:
- 1 person to contact ADT to offer this service.
- 1 person (possibly the same person) to act as co-ordinator, maintaining a roster and mailing reminders once a week.
- 52 households willing to provide coffee and sandwiches for a week.
