LONG-SERVING Dinmore-Ebbw Vale Neighbourhood Watch member Betty Bork has claimed a regional award for her dedication to her local committee.

Mrs Bork was presented with the Southern Region plaque and medal at the Neighbourhood Watch State Conference in Beenleigh this month.

She is a founding member of her local group, which started in August 1999 after a push from then local councillor Trevor Nardi.

The Neighbourhood Watch committee secretary said she believed the group had made a positive impact on the Dinmore and Ebbw Vale area over the last 13 years.

"We always say to people that if they see something, to call the police first and then tell us second so that we can let people know at the monthly meeting and put it in the newsletter," Mrs Bork said.

"It is all about awareness and in our area it is the awareness of those little things - like picking up rubbish and keeping an eye on graffiti and dumped vehicles."

She plans to remain a part of Neighbourhood Watch for years to come and has encouraged others to join her.

Goodna Sergeant Ian Stephens took out the Police Representative of the Year State Award.
