Neighbourhood watch awards

NHW service

Two Wells and Lewiston Neighbourhood Watch Group was recognised for 25 years of service to the community at a special award ceremony in November.

Some members of the group were also presented with service awards, including Anne and Patrick Porter (15 years), Maria Aunger (15 years), Jennifer and Don Nicol (10 years) and Betty and Dave Body (5 years).

TW&LNHW chairperson, Anne Porter, who has held this role since 1999, had the honour of accepting the award on behalf of the group, and was part of the initial push by local residents to establish the group.

Mrs Porter said back in 1988 the group was known as Rural Watch and were one of the first such groups in South Australia.
