People sought to help improve community life in Bretch Hill


Neighbourhood Team putting together a group who will work to improve Bretch Hill’s local community

Improving life in the Bretch Hill area of Banbury is the aim of a new scheme launched by our town’s Neighbourhood Team at Thames Valley Police.   They are currently looking for people who are passionate about the area who might be able to get involved.

The scheme is called “Intensive Engagement” and has the aim of utilising local resources to help improve the local community.   Banbury Neighbourhood Team is working on the project with a number of partners including Cherwell District council, Oxfordshire County Council, Sanctuary Housing and the community hubs and youth workers on the Bretch Hill estate.

The key to the success of Intensive Engagement is the involvement of local people.   A campaign is now underway to reach out to locals who are willing to support the project and those with key skills they can offer.   In particular they are keen to speak to people involved in coaching, sports team leadership, youth clubs, local groups and similar organisations.

Sergeant Ali Murdoch  said, “The Neighbourhood Team looks at solving issues, but you, the residents, are the key to the success of this project, and we’re eager to get you involved.

“If you’re passionate about making a change in your local area or know anyone who would want to help, please contact us”.
