Community Engagement Forum for Patchway
Community Engagement Forums (CEFs), previously known as Safer and Stronger Community Groups are about listening and responding to local people’s real issues. People in their communities know best what works for them and what their real needs are.
The aims are:
- To promote pride in the local area as a safe, thriving and pleasant place to live, work and play
- To reduce crime, disorder and drug and alcohol misuse in the area
- To empower local people to have a greater voice and influence over local decision making and service delivery by increasing the strength, capacity and engagement of the local community
- To improve the quality of life of people in the local area by identifying community aspirations, needs and local priorities.
CEFs have been developed through working with various partner agencies including the Avon & Somerset Police, Avon Fire & Rescue, health, town and parish councils and local organisations. CEFs are also about working in partnership with elected members; they aim to provide a platform for building strong and cohesive communities in which everyone, regardless of background, has a real sense of community involvement.
CEFs also support groups who wish to make a positive difference and improve their own communities. This is achieved by supporting community engagement initiatives.
Patchway is served by the Filton and Patchway Community Engagement Forum. The next meeting of the forum takes place on Wednesday 15th May 2019 at St Chad’s Church Hall, Rodway Road, Patchway BS34 5ED (7pm start).
The purpose of Neighbourhood Watch is to unite neighbourhoods in an effort to prevent crime, by protecting and enhancing their environment and generally looking out for each other’s properties. Working in partnership with the local Neighbourhood Policing Teams gives Neighbourhood Watches a way of dealing with many issues affecting their communities, such as anti-social behaviour, burglary and vehicle crime.
Neighbourhood Watches operate in the following Patchway streets:
Amberley Road, Bevington Close, Bevington Walk, Bibury Ave, Bourton Ave, Bourton Close, Chelford Grove, Clay Lane, Coniston Road, Dyrham Parade, Fairford Crescent, Morley Close, Painswick Ave, Rodway Road, Rudford Close, Staverton Close, Stoke Lane, Tetbury Close, The Avenue, The Close, The Common, Thirlmere Road.
