Beckingham North Notts (population c. 2,400) lies within the Parish Council of Beckingham cum Saundby and is situated in the county of North Nottinghamshire and borders onto Lincolnshire to the East and South Yorkshire to the North.

Civility & Respect - Zero Tolerance - The Parish Council is proud to support and follow the nationally recommended guidance from the National Association of Local Councils and the Society of Local Council Clerks in the promotion of civility and respect, bullying, harassment and intimidation will not be tolerated.

We treat everyone with courtesy and respect and ask for the same in return. We ask that you treat your councillors and council staff courteously without violence, abuse or harassment.

Councillors and council staff have the right to carry out their civic duties and work without fear of being attacked or abused. Any behaviour whether that be verbal, physical or in writing, which causes either councillors or council staff to feel uncomfortable, embarrassed, or threatened, is totally unacceptable.

The zero-tolerance policy includes abuse, aggression or threats made in person, over the telephone or in written communication, including on social media.

The council considers threatening behaviour to be:

  • Attempted or actual aggressive, or physical actions made towards any councillor or member of staff.
  • The use of aggressive, or abusive language, (including raising of the voice, swearing, shouting or in writing) which threatens or intimidates councillors or council staff.

This policy applies throughout all council meetings, but it also applies to any councillor or council staff away from council meetings."

Police Neighbourhood Alert System

Police Neighbourhood Alert System

The Police wish to share this with as many residents as possible:

Rural communities are being encouraged to form a united front against crime – by signing up to a new local email alert system.

In response to local feedback, Nottinghamshire Police is adopting a bespoke rural Neighbourhood Alert email platform, which sends regular warnings about the latest offences and emerging criminal trends. More »

We are encouraging residents, farmers and other business owners to learn more about what is happening in their area by signing up for updates.

The software, already used by thousands of people in the county, provides hyper-local, street-level updates to residents about what is happening in their area.

I am asking as many people as possible to sign up as we will be using the system as our main method of sending updates.

Can I also urge residents to continue to immediately report all offences and suspicious activity by phone or on-line in order to build up a clearer local picture about current activities and trends.

For example, if you are a farmer who uses a quadbike for work and a similar devices has been stolen from another farm nearby, we'll issue a bespoke warning to you so you can safeguard your investment.

All you need to do is sign up to Neighbourhood Alerts using the link below and ensure you have selected "rural matters" in the dropdown menu for specific trend updates.

"If you are already registered, you can also select specific trend updates you want to see by clicking on the 'messages' option and selecting 'which type of messages'."

To sign up to Neighbourhood Alert and keep up to date on rural crime, visit:


If you require any help or advice regarding this let me know.

Digital Automated Police Reports/Alerts

The Police have now introduced an automated update and alerting system which will be used now instead of a manual report uploaded to the parish website.

If anybody would like to sign up for these alerts please go to the following website;

When asked "What type of message do you want to receive?" - please select "RURAL MATTERS"

This should then allow the police to communicate via the program and allow the police to update you on matters in the community. More »

Registered users of Neighbourhood Alert get the following:

  • A totally free service - no incoming text or phone charges.
  • Member area where they have total control of their message settings – they can choose to receive alerts via email, text message or voice message and why types of message they wish to receive e.g. burglary alerts and general crime prevention messages.
  • They can unsubscribe at any time, there are no contracts or obligations.
  • Members receive information about crime trends, incidents and appeals from authorised police officers and staff.
  • They can report suspicious behaviour (not crime) and receive updates and responses about their information report.
  • Members can find out how to start a Neighbourhood Watch scheme in their area.

PC James Pickersgill will monitor Neighbourhood Alert and start sending out updates shortly.

Many thanks for your anticipated support and understanding,

If anyone does not feel confident in signing themselves up to this service but would like to receive the updates then please ask that they get in touch with me and I can provide the support which would usually entail me visiting the house as I cannot complete this by telephone.
