Officers from the Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team joined Brookmans Park residents at the weekend to celebrate May Day.
On Saturday (30 April), the village came together in the sunny weather for the special festival which traditionally marks the start of summer.
The Safer Neighbourhood Team hosted a stall, issuing crime prevention advice and goodies for the children including stickers and colouring pages. Motorists could also pick up free Faraday pouches for their keyless-entry vehicles. The pouches help to prevent the vehicles from theft as they block signals from reaching the keys when placed in the pouch.
PCSO Christie Hurley said: “We had a lovely time celebrating and there was a great sense of community spirit. We also brought along one of the police vans which people enjoyed going in!
“I’d like to thank everybody who took the time to come over to our stall and have a chat as it was really useful to hear your views on local policing. Don’t forget, you can let us know your thoughts at anytime by using our community voice platform, echo.
“I should also say a well done to PC Lauren McKeever for being a great sport and going in the stocks to face wet sponges - literally!”
