Summer safety roadshow to visit Chippy

safetyA summer safety roadshow is coming to town next week.

The West Oxfordshire Community Safety Partnership, which has organised the roadshow, is bringing together several participants – including Thames Valley Police, West Oxfordshire District Council, Oxfordshire Trading Standards, and Oxfordshire Fire & Rescue – to tell residents how they can be safer.

Issues to be covered at the roadshow will include burglary prevention, bogus callers, and fire safety.

The roadshow will be outside the town hall from 9.30am until 12pm on Wednesday 30 July.

Neighbourhood Inspector Ollie Holland said:

“West Oxfordshire continues to be a low crime area and part of this success is due to established partnership working between public agencies. We also work with communities to reduce the fear of crime and identify very local issues. This year we will be conducting surveys to gauge residents’ opinions on services and local concerns so please let us know what you think.

“There will also be advice on a range of topics to help you protect yourself, your property and your community. Officers from the neighbourhood police teams will be offering bike security marking and there will be free giveaways such as purse bells and crime reduction leaflets.”

Councillor Mark Booty, Cabinet Member for Community Safety at West Oxfordshire District Council, said:

“The West Oxfordshire Community Safety Team has organised safety roadshows previously which have proven popular as residents get to meet with several agencies in one place to discuss a whole range of issues.

“The roadshow is an ideal opportunity to showcase the work that is being done in our district and I urge as many residents as possible to visit when it is in their area.”
