Highbridge police pod set to celebrate busy first year of operation

The successful police pod at Highbridge's Asda store will be celebrating its first birthday on Tuesday (April 6th).

Local police officers, fire crews, members of the blood bikes team and Homes in Sedgemoor are just a few of the agencies who will be attending the celebratory party from 2-4pm.

Members of the public are also invited to mark the milestone.

Launched last April, the pod has had a successful year, providing information, advice and help on a range of subjects.

Visitors have made enquiries about their local Neighbourhood Watch Schemes, PACT meetings and local Dreamscheme events. Staff and residents have also been able to discuss Community SpeedWatch issues and officers have also been on hand to give advice on Crime Reduction.

PCSO Gill Bawler told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The beat team are absolutely thrilled with the positive impact the pod has had on our community and would like to thank the volunteers for all the hard work and dedication they have shown in helping us make the Pod a success."
