City residents “concerned about the crime scourge” across Wagga are invited to a community meeting this week. 

Neighbourhood Watch president Wayne Deaner said Wagga “people have had a gut full” of the arson, car fires, break-ins and vandalism.

He said reasonable attendance at the meeting on Wednesday, May 17 would help “get something done” and kick start a movement toward a safer Wagga. 

“The more people there are, the more powers-that-be will have to listen,” Mr Deaner said.

“Neighbourhood Watch can get political.”

Residents are invited to a BBQ dinner at Kooringal Community Centre on Wilga street from 6pm, followed by meeting proceedings at 7pm. 

“Wagga’s had enough,” Mr Deaner said.

“We as a community need to get behind each other.”
