A north Suffolk town is to hold a neighbourhood watch meeting to help reduce crime in the area.

The neighbourhood watch meeting in Halesworth will give people the chance to ask questions about crime in their town – with members of the public invited to come along to the Apollo Youth centre, on June 22, from 2pm to discuss any issues about crime and the prevention of crime in the area.

Brian Sivyer, secretary for Suffolk Neighbourhood Watch, said: 'We will have two speakers on the day; Inspector Mark Jackson from Suffolk Constabulary and Tony Spall, chairman of Suffolk Neighbourhood Watch.

'The idea is to give people the chance to ask questions about crime and prevention in their area. The crime prevention team will also be there to showcase property and personal safety tools, like chains and locks, available to purchase. It is important that we increase the knowledge of the Neighbourhood Watch service and the police after recent cuts.'
