It’s time to renew our house insurance again. So I go off and find a quote on line. I then visit the insurers website and they ask if I am part of a neighbourhood watch area. So I visit the Cleveland Police website and they give a load of stuff about the hows and why’s of neighbourhood watch, but not the most useful information you could have: Where the schemes exist. Street maps are dime a dozen, but there are none to be found on the website. The official neighbourhood watch website looks like it has been designed by a MySpace reject, and again absolutely no maps of local schemes.

Rant over.
