One of the desired strategic outcomes in ACT Neighbourhood Watch’s Strategic Plan is “To Develop and Sustain a Viable Relationship with the ACT Community.
The increased visibility of the organization, its aims and objectives has been served well by this web site and social networking technologies; all designed to give a greater profile but we must continue to take opportunities to be present and accessible in the places where people go.
A few weeks ago we reported that this year’s Woden Festival was a terrific success and that the presence of NHW was not only significant but well received.
Last weekend was no exception with volunteers from across the active NHW areas of Gungahlin setting up a display and access point at the venue for this year’s Christmas in Gungahlin Party sponsored annually by the Land Development Agency ACT.
By all accounts it was a steady day for recruiting and helping members of the public better understand the virtues of looking out for each other and fostering a community spirit towards safer and more vibrant neighbourhoods.
Opportunities like these are bread and butter for ACT NHW volunteers as they look for more and better ways to provide practical education to the community. You can have all the tech savvy in the world but there’s nothing more effective than face to face interaction.
