Rutland NHW is planning to launch a Rutland NHW and Community App for the beginning of September inspired by the Belton Neighbourhood Watch link. The App which will be free to download on any smartphone, iPhone or android, will deliver security alerts from NHW, Rutland Police, Rural Watch and many other similar such organisations instantly.
Additionally, up to date information on walk-in clinics, doctors, hospitals with contact details, opening hours and GPS availability to sat nav will also be available together with details of all veterinary clinics should you have an emergency while out and about.
There will be a facility linked to RCC Highways called ‘fix my street’ and since the App is interactive you will be able to photograph abandoned vehicles, fly tipping, graffiti, in fact, all manner of things to send along with details on the link direct to Highways for their attention.
There will be a chat wall where you can post any lost or found pets; advise your neighbours of any concerns you may have in your village and so much more.
You don’t even need the internet – just a mobile phone!
So watch this space and be advised of the launch.
