Neighbourhood Action Group

Datchet, Horton and Wraysbury Neighbourhood Action Group


NAG is part of a force wide neighbourhood initiative established by Thames Valley Police in 2007/8. We are a multi agency problem solving group with an independent Chairman drawing our membership from TVP, the Royal Borough, Parish Councils, local schools, residents and businesses with input from other statutory agencies or organisations as appropriate.

The objective of the NAG is to identify annually residents’ top three community issues or concerns and act as an advisory, influencing and pursuing body to focus partnership or direct agency involvement to achieve positive outcomes in addressing those concerns. In achieving the latter the group has also to be realistic in recognising that reducing anti social behaviour (ASB) in one location may only move it to the next road or village. Reducing speeding may not always be resolved by direct enforcement but may also require the Highways Department to consider speed reduction improvements. Theft from motor vehicles can be reduced by educating owners not to leave valuables in their vehicles.

The Group meets every 6/8 weeks at venues within the three villages that make up the Policing Neighbourhood. The appointed Independent Chairman is Mrs. Betty Marlow. Core Group Community Members include RBWM Councillors John Lenton (Horton and Wraysbury) & Garry Muir (Datchet), Parish Council Representatives Councillors Andrew. Davies (Wraysbury), Don. Lyons-Davis (Datchet) & David Burkin (Horton) and the Deputy Head of Churchmead School.

Message from the Chairman:


Since the DHW NAG was formed and with the active support of our partner agencies (Thames Valley Police, RBWM Community Safety Team, local Housing Associations, Parish Councils, other agencies and community representatives), we have addressed the concerns and needs which have been bought to our attention in many different ways by members of the three communities we serve. Each year our main vehicle for collecting information and the identification of the three local policing priories for the coming year is via a questionnaire that is circulated in many differing ways within the community. Where possible (subject to volunteers) they have been delivered door to door, through local groups and are available at a number of information points and community web sites. Should you require an electronic copy please email dhw_nag@ 

PCSO Helen Spalding or PCSO Les. Bradfield will also be out and about over the next few weeks circulating the questionnaire to members of the public at the Tesco Store, Datchet and in Wraysbury High Street plus the ‘Have your Say’ events on 2nd June 2010 in Wraysbury Village Hall from 3.00pm to 4.00pm and in Champney Hall, Horton from 5.00pm to 6.00pm.

Each year we also hold a public meeting so that we can report back to you on what has been achieved over the past year, provide an opportunity to meet the team and contribute to the Group’s future endeavours to enhance the well being of our communities. As we cover three villages, this year our meeting is being held at: 


Please find the time to attend. You will be receiving reports from Inspector P. Dalton and the Neighbourhood Policing Team and the RBWM Community Safety Team. The results of a ‘youth’questionnaire designed and evaluated by the students of Churchmead will also be available. You will also hear details of a number of community based project to which we have been the facilitator. I look forward to receiving your questionnaire and welcoming you to Churchmead on 21st.
