HORSE and pony owners in the High Peak and Derbyshire Dales are being encouraged to join a special watch group.
Derbyshire Horse Watch is looking to sign up new members and coordinators across the area.
The initiative, which is similar to Neighbourhood Watch, aims to raise awareness of equine crime and improve communication and security between horse owners and riders across the county.
Anybody interested in finding out more is invited to a meeting at the Red House Stables Carriage Museum, Old Road, Darley Dale, on Friday, August 12 at 7pm.
Alternatively, for further details please contact Inspector Erika Green or PC Louise Neville on 0345 123 33 33.
