Corby Borough Council’s Neighbourhood Management Team, Northants Fire Service and the Neighbourhood Policing Teams will be visiting Gretton to offer FREE safety checks, crime prevention and wellbeing advice.
The Rural Day of Action will take place on Monday 9th September. Free home fire safety checks will be offered and residents can talk to police and council officers about any local concerns they may have. The Days of Action are part of a regular programme of engagement to identify local issues important to residents in the borough. This feedback then informs the work of agencies to tackle community problems.
Corby Borough Council Housing and Neighborhood Services Cllr Bob Eyles said;
‘The Days of Action are an important way for the Council, Police and Fire Service to talk to residents and provide face to face contact, which many people find reassuring and feel that their concerns are genuinely being listened to. It’s also a great way if increasing agency presence in an area, which can make residents feel safer.’
Officers from Corby Borough Council, Northamptonshire Police and Northants Fire and Rescue Service have been working together to plan these events over the past months.
Green Watch Commander for Northants Fire and Rescue, Dave Smith said:
‘This is another example of the positive joint working initiatives between different agencies within Corby to improve the services on offer to our community and improve resident’s safety and wellbeing.’
PC Mark Walker from The Neighbourhood Policing Team, said:
‘These days are essential in giving useful advice on crime prevention and ensuring residents are doing everything they can do make their properties safe. It also provides a great opportunity for us to continue building on the excellent partnership working with the Borough Council and Fire Service.’
