In July 2016 the rules of association have changed and to comply we need to upgrade our constitution or adopt the new draft model rules for an association.

At the September AGM we will be voting on accepting the new model rules  to replace our Constitution but until then we will have them on our website so that you can make any comment. The current constitution is  exactly the same as the new model rules in terms of the objects of association, quorum numbers, and financial year but the new model rules have more documentation on mediation processes and a few other matters.

Neighbourhood Watch was operating in Ashfield over 20 years ago, but ceased when interest dwindled and as a result, crime began to flourish. The current Neighbourhood Watch group commenced on 26th May 2010 and over 80 residents have since joined, with the result that crime is decreasing, but we need to remain vigilant to keep it that way.




The following tips will make your home less attractive to burglars:

Ensure all doors and windows have adequate locks, including those of garage and sheds.

Keep gates locked when not in use.

Trim shrubs to eliminate hiding places.

Install external security sensor lights.

Have a peephole in the main door.

Don’t hide keys outside.

Have your street number clearly visible from the street.

Automatic timing switches for lights, TV etc are excellent, as is a safe for valuables.

A dog is a good deterrent.

and most importantly:

Get to know your neighbours so you can look out for each other.

If you are already a member of Neighbourhood Watch, congratulations. Please ensure your signs are displayed as they are a visible deterrent to criminals.

If you haven’t yet joined Neighbourhood Watch we’d love to have you on board. Call Verna on 0432 563 800
