Following on the success of last year’s ‘Have Your Say’ event, Gosport Community Safety Partnership (GCSP) is hosting a Safer Gosport Community Day.
Taking place on Saturday 17 March at the Town Hall Gosport, the event will feature a range of activities with an overall theme of ‘Working Together for a Safer Gosport’. Running from 11am-3pm, the event will include: -
- *‘You Be the Judge’, where from 11.30am to 12.30pm you can take part in a Magistrate trial scenario.
- *‘Question Time’ where from 1 to 2.30pm you get the chance to quiz senior representatives of GCSP on crime and anti-social behaviour in your area.
*Places for both these sessions are limited and you are advised to book in advance. You can do this online at www.safergosport.co.uk/initiatives by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel: (023) 9254 5232.
“This event is suitable for the whole family as it has something for everyone,” said Sam Mitchell, Community Engagement Officer at Gosport Council. “People can wander round the emergency service vehicles parked in Nat Gonella Square, or visit the Community Safety van for advice on keeping you and your property safe. To make sure that if stolen, all your valuables can be safely returned to you they will have free bicycle coding, information on property marking kits and even dog-chipping to ensure your pet is returned (a nominal charge may apply).”
In order to tell you what they are doing to make Gosport a safer place to live and work, and to provide you with advise on how you can get involved in keeping your community safe, representatives will be on hand from :-
- Neighbourhood Watch
- Street Pastors
- Hampshire Constabulary
- Gosport Borough and Hampshire County Council
- Housing Associations
- Probation Service
- Southern Co-operative
All this plus home safety fire checks and some great fun activities including a Police WII challenge, face painting and a safety quiz where you could win £75 worth of vouchers of your choice!
The Gosport Community Alcohol Partnership will also launch the start of a year long project in Gosport to address the demand and supply for underage drinking.
