How can we make Surrey an even better place to live?

The groups can have a much wider and stronger remit, particularly looking after the elderly and other vulnerable groups A neighbourhood watch group can keep track of all elderly/infirm members of society and make sure they are regularly visited. It would also be a good way of society developing and enforcing a zero-tolerance attitude towards domestic abuse.

    Is this not something Parish Councils can take under their wing - providing a structure and a certain amount of influence through established links within local neighbourhood and other agencies? Avoid reinventing the wheel.
