Briar Hill Week of Action

Published: Monday, 17 July 2017

People living in the Briar Hill area of Northampton are invited to take part in a week of action organised by the Northampton Community Safety Partnership.

With activities planned throughout the week, events kick off with an afternoon of outdoor activities at the Briar Hill playing fields on Monday, 24 July. A dog agility competition and a variety of sports will be taking place between 12pm and 4pm while Northamptonshire Fire Service talks about water safety advice. The RSPCA will also be offering reduced-price dog microchipping.

The week-long community focus will bring a whole host of events to the area including a family fun event on Thursday, 27 July at Briar Hill Community Centre and a community litter-pick with free hot dogs for everyone who helps out on Friday, 28 July. There will be a chance to talk to a range of local agencies throughout the week.

Councillor Anna King, cabinet member for community safety and engagement at Northampton Borough Council, said: “The focus for the week is helping people to stay safe, so there are loads of different activities where people can come along to get advice about personal safety or safety at home advice as well as have some fun.

“This is happening in the first week of the school holiday and we’ve got some great activities to keep kids of different ages entertained. I hope that everyone who lives in the Briar Hill area will get involved.”
