Cyclists in March are being invited to get their bikes postcode-marked for free.

The crime prevention event will take place on Wednesday, August 14, at the Market Place in the town.

Between 9am and 2pm, residents will be able to speak to local PCSOs about bike security and how to prevent their cycle being stolen.

Officers will post code bikes for free and explain how they can be registered on Immobilise, an online property database.

PCSO Rachael Cheverton said: “This is a great opportunity for cyclists to get their bike postcode-marked and to learn a bit more about how they can deter thieves and keep their bike secure at all times.”

Throughout August, police will be targeting new sales of bicycles and encouraging people to mark their bikes and register them on Immobilise as part of the force’s ‘Get Closer’ campaign, which raises awareness of crime trends.
