Catamaran beach bar was packed last night for our Neighborhood Watch meeting. Residents of San Marcos and San Pablo joined together to get better acquainted with their neighbors and share ideas on how to make these areas safer.
San Marcos and San Pablo span from the street where Crystal Water depot is on north to Hideaway Bar at the south end and the western boundary begins at Seagrape / Coconut drive – east to the airstrip.
We all agreed it is not just about “our house” and more so about looking at the bigger picture and building a sense of safety and security within the community as a whole. To kick that off we are planning to have a clean up day on Sunday at the abandoned church lot in our area – anyone is welcome to come out and join the gang and donations of garbage bags are welcome. For more information please email neighbourhoodwatchsanpablo[at]yahoo.ca
It was also discussed how we can all light – listen and look. Make sure you have adequate lighting and remember to help your neighbor do same if they are unable to handle that task themselves. If you hear dogs on your street barking in a way that is different that usual take a look out the window and see if you notice anything or anyone out of the ordinary. If you have a camera handy take a picture it may prove useful.
If anyone out there in the world has any good neighborhood safety tips to share with us here in Ambergris Caye Belize please leave comment below or send email to nw address listed above.
After the meeting Mitch Paul and I went to Sun Up for Chinese take out. Cori drove by – Mitch flagged her down to hang out with us while we waited for our food and score a ride home – thanks for the ride. I have to say that the chicken fingers and crispy fries last night were the best they have served me to date.
