paid to former Chairman of Burnham Neighbourhood Watch
have this week been paid to a former Chairman of Burnham-On-Sea
Neighbourhood Watch Association, who has died in a car crash.
Chalmers lost control of his car after suffering a heart
attack while at the wheel of his car in Wales and
have come in from friends and colleagues.
Robertson, who worked alongside John at the former association,
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "I had the privilege of working
closely with John on the Neighbourhood Watch Committee, as did
many co-ordinators in the area."
played a major part in developing Neighbourhood Watch in this
part of the world, being on the Committee of several organisations
within Sedgemoor and Somerset when Neighbourhood Watch and other
safety issues were being promoted, and he gave a huge amount of
his time, energy, knowledge, and experience to the cause."
entered into some difficult negotiations as Chairman of the Burnham
and area Neighbourhood Watch Association, and invariably won the
day through his sheer determination and refusal to give up."
we had to wind up the Association, the fact that there are so
many Neighbourhood Watch schemes in the area is due largely to
the foundations put down by John and others, and for that we shall
be ever grateful."
