New Community Messaging Service

Malvern Hills

Parishioners can now keep up to date with local policing news following the July launch of a community messaging service for residents living in the West Mercia Police area. The new system, called Neighbourhood Matters, enables residents, businesses and community groups across Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Telford to find out more about what is happening in their local community. It also gives them the opportunity to contact police officers and local policing teams directly so they can raise any concerns and provide feedback. It is a free service and those who sign up can choose to receive news and appeals, local crime information and crime prevention advice via a number of different channels. To sign up and receive alerts visit the Neighbourhood Matters website at:

We will be adding a direct link for new service onto the Bishopswood Village website once available to enable quick access to the latest alert messages from the service.
