Police offer free bike marking events in South Lakes
2:28pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in News
FREE bike marking events are to be held in South Lakeland.
Firstly on Saturday, between 10am and 2pm at the Kendal Birdcage, and then in Hawkshead next week.
On Saturday, officers, including Inspector Paul Latham, along with representatives from the Trading Standards, Cumbria Fire and Rescue, Young Cumbria and South Lakeland District Council will be speaking to members of the community about concerns.
Inspector Latham said: “It is the ideal opportunity for members of the community to discuss any issue with us, from Hallowe'en and Bonfire night concerns, to crime prevention and personal safety.
“There will be the chance to get their bicycles securely marked, which we are offering for free.
“We are in the town centre at the weekend to speak to as many people as possible. Please don’t think that it is too minor to bother us with, come along and have a chat.”
PCSO for Coniston and Hawkshead Emma Forrester will host the second event, held at Market Hall, Market Square between 10.30am and 12.30pm next Wednesday (October 30).
PCSO Forrester said: “As the new PCSO for the area, I very much hope as many as possible will attend during the half-term school holiday so that I may introduce myself to those I have yet to meet and welcome those I have.
“I wish to share some useful crime prevention advice and tips, dependent upon your needs or concerns. My team and I will be security marking all bicycles brought to Market Hall. I look forward to meeting you.
“I would like to thank the people at Market Hall, Hawkshead for the use of their foyer to carry out this surgery. If successful, I propose carrying out further surgeries in Coniston and Hawkshead.”
