SK Security WhatsApp Group

This is a WhatsApp based group for South Kilworth that aims to alert villagers about   issues of security. Anyone in the village can join. It links with other groups in surrounding villages

Our security WhatsApp group has been running since 2017 and currently has over 70 participants. We try to minimise chatter, focus on security issues and hopefully not be an unnecessary disturbance to otherwise busy members. We started the group during a spate of local burglaries, which fortunately are currently now rare. How much that can be put down to the group we will never know but we have raised awareness of the group and have signs at all entrances to thevillage. To help ensure a village friendly group we have developed a welcome notice and a code of conduct
