Our small estate was known as Northbourne Ghetto and Social City! We had a very bad (undeserved) reputation with high levels of antisocial behaviour and small amounts of petty crime.
After various police panel meetings we decided to setup a group to try and turn our estate around, N.A.G’s (Northbourne Action Group) was born, we formed in October 2006 with a committee of 5, over the years we have grown and moved from strength to strength. Reducing antisocial behaviour by a massive 30% and crime to almost zero.
There are now 12 NAGS, mums and dads who give their free time to provide events and activities for the children and the community on the estate. We have won various awards and we are proud to say that the community spirit and the general appearance of the estate has improved dramatically.
