Neighbourhood forums in Fenland

RESIDENTS of March and Wisbech are being invited to air their views at Neighbourhood Forums.

Members of the district policing teams will be available at both events to answer questions and respond to any concerns.

The Fenland Community Safety Partnership Crimebuster bus will be outside the Council Chambers, in North Brink, Wisbech, on Monday (June 25) and in Broad Street, March, on Monday July 2. The bus will be at both locations from noon until about 8pm.

Sgt Robin Cawston, for Wisbech, and Sgt Martin Monger, for March, will attend along with representatives from Fenland District Council.

Members of the public will be invited to complete a short questionnaire, the results of which will be used to identify community concerns and influence the multi-agency response.

There will also be a chance for residents to speak to police and local councillors at Wisbech Council Chambers on North Brink between 6pm and 7pm on Monday and at March Town Council Chamber, in Market Place, between 6pm and 7pm on July 2. There will also be representatives from both district and county councils to discuss community issues appropriate to them.

Sergeant Alan Boughen said: “This is an excellent opportunity for people to come and meet their local policing team and also raise any issues or concerns they have about their neighbourhood.

“We are seeking to get a wide cross section of opinions from people so officers will also be out in the town centres on these days talking to people.

“This is the public’s chance to speak to us in an informal way and we will listen to all their views and take action with partners agencies if necessary.”
