Residents in the Tildarg area have formed a Neighbourhood Watch group in a bid to tackle rural crime in the region.
The group has been established in the Tildarg and Dunamoy area to inform members of the community about suspicious activity and crime.
They will be holding their first meeting in Tildarg Orange Hall on Thursday, March 29 at 8pm and are inviting members of the public to come along and register for updates.
Updates will be provided via social media, text messages and door-to-door visits.
Susan Grace Bates, the group’s main coordinator, said: “We love our area and it is not bad or dangerous in any way.
“However, there have been a lot of robberies lately, from farms in particular, and we want to do what we can to keep everyone informed and try to prevent future robberies.”
It is understood members of the PSNI and Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) will be in attendance at the inaugural meeting.
