North East


Welcome to the page for the Neighbourhood Watch (NW) Network group for the North East (NE) of Ipswich, which covers the Ipswich Borough wards of Bixley, Rushmere and St. John’s.

It consists of approximately 50 Neighbourhood Watch Schemes. It is almost all residential and includes several schools and the Ipswich Hospital. It is a low crime area, but the number of incidents that occur at the hospital can tend to distort the crime figures for the area in general.

The purpose of Neighbourhood Watch in this area is to reduce crime, by exchanging information with the NE Safer Neighbourhood Team of the Suffolk Constabulary and to liaise with all other levels of Neighbourhood Watch.

All the co-ordinators, and representatives from the Safer Neighbourhood Team, of the NE meet, once every three months at the St. Clements Social Club, ‘now renamed The Foxhall Community Centre’ to discuss current issues in the area and to distribute and collate information to pass on to the Ipswich Area Network Forum. This consists of representatives of all areas of Ipswich and the Suffolk Constabulary District Commander and meets in Ipswich once every three months.

The NE Network Group co-ordinator is Gary Gascoyne.
