A community day is to be held in Bishop’s Stortford this Thursday (26 May).
Representatives from Hertfordshire Constabulary, Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, the East of England Ambulance Service, Clarion Housing and other organisations will come together for the event at Thorley Neighbourhood Centre.
It will take place between 10am and 2pm and will allow members of the public to pick up advice around crime prevention, fire safety and first aid.
Residents will also be able to have their say on the local issues they feel police and partner agencies should be focusing on.
Sergeant Teresa Funes-Walker, from the local police Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “Partnership working is key to keeping the town a safe place to live, work and visit. This event will allow people to pick up advice on a range of topics and we look forward to meeting with as many people as possible on the day.
“It’s also an opportunity for people to let us know of any issues or concerns in their local community. Information from members of the public really does make a difference.”
