Residents  take a stand thumbnailAnderson Park in Coleraine where anti-social behaviour is causing concern amongst residents.

A COLERAINE councillor is setting up a town centre Neighbourhood Watch Scheme in a bid to crackdown on anti-social behaviour in Anderson Park. Councillor William McCandless is inviting residents to a meeting this Friday (November 11) being hosted by the Causeway Coast and Glens Policing and Community Partnership.
Police officers will listen to residents' concerns at St Patrick's Parish Minor Hall and give crime prevention tips as well as free security marking kits.
Householders in Circular Road, Park Street and Union Street are invited to attend the event which will begin at 2.30pm.
Cllr McCandless said he hoped the initiative would "make a real difference to our community and people's lives."
He added: "Neighbourhood Watch is a partnership between local communities, Police and Policing & Community Partnerships.
“The scheme aims to create effective communication among residents and the police to help reduce crime and the fear of crime in the area. As Co-ordinator, I will act as the primary point of contact for residents."
