This message is sent on behalf of National Neighbourhood Watch Network:

Dear NW colleague,

We're excited to share details of an exciting project we're working on with our NWN sponsor - the Co-op Insurance. Please do share this with your local networks.

Neighbourhood Watch and Co-op Insurance has just launched a nationwide search to find and celebrate some of the best and most considerate neighbours of 2018!

We're urging people to nominate the most deserving individuals across the UK and there is also an opportunity to put forward your 'Hero Next Door' for a true act of heroism.

Neighbourhood Watch and Co-op Insurance are working together on this exciting award and anyone can nominate their good neighbours today!  We're talking about the local heroes in your street and community whose acts of kindness and neighbourliness really set them apart.

David Huse, OBE, Chair of the Neighbourhood Watch Network (NWN), says: "Everyone should feel safe in their community and having strong, welcoming and active neighbours who look out for each other means anti-social behaviour and crime are less likely to happen. Getting to know your neighbours has huge benefits for everyone - and with these award we want to recognise the people who are making such a vital contribution to community life and encourage others to follow in their footsteps."

Those nominating don't need to be a Neighbourhood Watch member and the person you nominate doesn't need to be a member either.

Click here to join in- before nominations close on September 5 - and you'll be taken to the nomination form where you can share your stories of great neighbourly activities and acts of kindness.

You can also share the link to the nominations page by cutting and pasting it from below.
