OUR PLACE NEIGHBOURHOOD SUPPORT WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU


Neighbourhood Support lost track of its network in 2005, and wants to hear from you if there is a group operating in your neighbourhood. In complicated circumstances back in 2005, the old Neighbourhood


Support organisation for Waitakere City collapsed and all the records were lost. The organisation reformed in 2007, but they have had a difficult time finding all the street contacts. Sam Farquhar is the co-ordinator for what used to be the Waitakere


City area. “This odd situation means there are neighbourhood support groups out there who are wondering why they never hear from us! Please give us a call and re-register with us, and we can put you on the list to receive our weekly e-mail bulletin of community news and the

latest street-by-street crime information. “We have a good network of contacts in Green Bay, but not in the


other suburbs covered by the Tatler. So we’d like to hear from groups in Titirangi, New Lynn, Glen Eden and Kelston. We only have two groups registered in Titirangi, and I’m sure there are many more operating.” Sam is also keen


to hear from anyone wanting to start up a neighbourhood support group in their area. An information pack, signs, and stickers can be provided, and Sam’s team will give training and support. “Neighbourhood

support basically comes down to knowing your neighbours, and if you know them you’ll look out for them. It doesn’t happen so easily these days in a big city, but all it takes is for one resident to take the initiative and knock on some doors,” says Sam.

Neighbourhood Support works in partnership with the Police, Civil


Defence, the Fire Service, and Auckland Council. It is precariously funded, relying on grants from the council, Trusts, and fundraising events. $90,000 a year is required to run the office at the Te Atatu Police Station, and employ Sam and three part-time staff, a real bargain for the job they do in the community. The final message Sam would like to get across is to report all


crime, no matter how small. “If we want more Police officers, it has to be justified through crime statistics. There is a high-degree of under- reporting at present, so call your local station, or do it anonymously on www.crimestoppers-nz.org ” Contact Neighbourhood Support Waitakere on 834 5815 or visit
