Sheringham Safer Neighbourhood Team hold series of events to promote keeping safe

Sheringham residents will have the chance to find out more about crime prevention next month in a series of events hosted by Norfolk Constabulary.

A group of PCSOs from the local Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) will be putting on the events to offer advice and help on how to keep safe.

Organiser PCSO Rebekah Best, said: 'We are really keen to offer crime prevention advice to local residents as it often takes only simple steps to keep you, your home and your property safe.'

The first event - a crime prevention day - takes place on Thursday, March 1 at St Andrews Methodist Church.

This is open to everyone and will look at keeping homes and belongings safe with information from securing heating oil tanks to preventing scrap metal thefts available.

The PCSOs will be joined by Trading Standards on the day who will offer advice on how to stay alert to scams and how not to fall victim to rogue traders or bogus officials.

This event is on from 11am to 2pm.
