Stroud District Council Neighbourhood Wardens engage with the local community to help support vulnerable people, offer free home security and crime prevention advice and to advise on dealing with bogus callers, antisocial behaviour, hate crime and bullying.
In addition, they work to keep our environment clean and green by dealing with such issues as litter, fly tipping, dog fouling and graffitti.
Sadly, we have had a stream of wardens for Eastington area come and go, and for a while did not have our ‘own’. Happily we now do! – contact Katie Marwick at :-
