Schools/Community –
On 15/01 PCSOs McCue and Griffiths attended at Murdishaw Community for the Winter Warmth event. This was an initiative run by Onward housing where a number of partnership agencies all attended the centre with stalls offering advice, literature and other giveaways to members of the community that attended.

On 18/01 PCSOs McCue and Griffiths held a bike marking event at Brookvale Recreation Centre. Bicycles were marked up and registered with BikeRegister, we also gave out UV pens and cycle safety advice. 40 bicycles were marked with many others asking when the next event will be, so overall a great result.
