PCSOs back at Grovehill Youth Centre

After months of organisation, Cllr. Alexander Bhinder is delighted to announce the reinstatement of the police office at the Grovehill Youth Centre.

The youth centre doesn't have a permanent staff like the community centre. The small office is upstairs which is a little impractical and the turnover isn't sufficient to pay for full-time staff anyway. This doesn't mean that the office can't be used. In fact up until a couple of years ago, it was regularly used by the police, the presence of which proved to be quite successful.

Well, it took a little more planning this time around but when Alex mentioned his idea to PCSOs Alex Mason and Charlie Lumm, things very quickly fell into place.

Residents will be welcome to drop in to discuss concerns. In fact a schedule of open surgeries has already been published:

  • Wednesday 25th April 2018 – 15:30 – 17:30
  • Friday 25th May 2018 – 16:00 – 18:00
  • Friday 29th June 2018 – 16:00 - 18:00

So if there's anything you feel warrants their attention, please don't hesitate to drop in for a chat with Simon (left), Charlie (centre) and Alex (right).

In the meantime, we'll keep you posted as more drop-in dates are confirmed so watch this space.

Remember... if it's not an emergency, call 101.
