Neighbourhood Watch’s national online shop is now open!

Posted on

We are thrilled to open our first-ever online shop selling official Neighbourhood Watch branded merchandise. Our supporters have long told us that they would like to be able to purchase Neighbourhood Watch street signs, window stickers, and other branded accessories such as notebooks, tote bags or trolley coins centrally. 

“We are so pleased to be able to support local Neighbourhood Watch groups to purchase branded items centrally. This will make it easier for them to replace old street signs with fresh new ones, deterring crimes from their street.” John Hayward-Cripps, CEO of Neighbourhood Watch Network

As an independent national charity, your support in the shop will enable us to offer customers the best prices possible and expand the range of items in store.

“Some of our limited-stock merchandise proudly celebrates our 40th anniversary with our much-loved special-edition logo. We know items such as our pin badges are popular and can’t wait to see more of our members wearing them.” Cheryl Spruce, Head of Membership and Engagement

To celebrate, we are offering all customers a 20% discount until the end of October 2022. Use the code NW-SHOP at checkout.
