A 'well-established' event that aims to keep residents safe is coming to Hatfield.

A ‘well-established’ event that aims to keep residents safe is coming to town.

On Thursday, December 1, the event, held by The Community Safety Partnership (CSP), aims to give Welwyn Hatfield residents advice on personal and financial safety, health and wellbeing, and crime prevention.

The event, which will be offering free mince pies, runs from 2pm to 4pm at Gracemead House, Woods Avenue, Hatfield.

It will be attended by police, fire, and council officers, Welwyn Hatfield Community Housing Trust, Trading Standards, Citizens Advice, victim support, Hertfordshire Libraries, and Affinity Water.

The NHS, Age UK Hertfordshire, Alzheimer’s Society and other wellbeing services are also on hand to help residents with their all-important health queries.

Chief inspector Adam Willmot, who chairs the CSP, said: “The Safer Together events are now a well-established means of informing our residents and keeping them safe from all forms of crime and risks to people’s safety.”

Councillor Roger Trigg, executive member for community safety, said: “The Christmas period is a joyful time but can also pose many risks to health, with cold weather and illness more prevalent.

“Our most recent Safer Together event gave people of all ages and concerns vital information on how to keep your body healthy, your mind informed, and your home secure.

“The various CSP partners and organisations that are attending have free expert advice that you could not get anywhere else.”
