Published: Thursday, 08 August 2019

Springs Family Centre is to host a Northampton Community Safety Partnership ‘One Stop Shop’ on Tuesday 13 August.

In the morning, residents will have the opportunity to get updates and chat to officers from Northampton Borough Council, Northampton Partnership Homes, Northamptonshire Energy Saving Service Bus, Veolia and Northamptonshire Police, with the aim of making a difference in Spring Boroughs.

In addition, residents who come along to the event will be able to benefit from the free refreshment, massages and nail treatments on offer as well as to get their kids involved in a fun, crime scene activity.

In the afternoon, young people can get involved in free sports sessions, music workshops and games with Northampton Leisure Trust, Inspiration FM and Ngage between 1pm and 4pm. From 4pm Free2Talk will be holding their weekly youth club, open to young people ages 12 to 19 years old.

Councillor Anna King, Cabinet member for community engagement and safety said: “Our partnership ‘Action Days’ are a great way for residents to get involved and make their area a better place to live.

“We’re looking forward to meeting residents in Spring Boroughs to talk through any issues they are experiencing and plan ways to make a difference together. We encourage as many people to come along as possible.”

Sergeant Rod Williams of the Northampton Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “These events are an ideal opportunity to work with our partners to engage with the Spring Borough community. It provides residents of all ages with access to their neighbourhood policing team, giving them the chance to raise any issues or concerns they may have locally, as well as pick up personal safety and crime prevention information.”
