Neighbourhood Wardens receive charter award

Mansfield District Council's Neighbourhood Wardens have been awarded the Warden Charter for 2012 to 2013, in recognition of their high standards and quality of service.

The Council's warden scheme performed well in a number of areas, including partnership working with residents, volunteers, local organisations and businesses. Also highlighted was the wardens' work on the removal of graffiti and abandoned vehicles, support for crime victims and falling levels of crime.

Cllr Mick Barton, Portfolio Holder for Public Protection said: "It's fantastic news to see our Neighbourhood Warden Service achieve the Warden Charter for 2012 to 2013. This reflects the dedicated work that they are carrying out throughout the communities within the Mansfield District. The charter recognises warden services that excel at tackling all kinds of issues from environmental crime, to anti-social behaviour, as well as community working."

This is the first time the Council has applied for the Warden Charter, which is awarded on an annual basis. The Charter was developed nationally to show local residents and stakeholders that warden schemes perform to a high standard and are valued by residents and stakeholders.
