Home About Us Notices Who's Who

ASCOT VILLAGE ASSOCIATION IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION WHOSE OFFICIAL GOAL IS TO IMPROVE OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD.

 

Effective security is based on residents and owners literally watching, and knowing each other. Knowing when owners are in occupation, recognising legitimate gardeners, domestics, and regular contractors. The presence of unfamiliar people on neighbouring properties or present at unusual times and days should be made known straight away to the usual occupants and/or security services. Owners engaging contractors should notify their neighbours and try to insist that the contractors provide a name list of their staff doing the work. Notoriously, thefts are committed or facilitated by labourers, especially casuals, attached to contractors and thereby well placed to note who comes and goes and when. Thefts are often planned for execution after the contractor has finished the job. More often than not their employers do not have sufficient information about their labourers to facilitate tracing and identification.
