seek volunteers to run Pod at Highbridge's Asda store
volunteers are being invited to sign up to help run Highbridge's
Police Pod as it expands its opening hours.
Asda Police Pod has been open in the town since 2009 and offers
local people and visitors the opportunity to speak to an officer
or police volunteer about policing or community issues, from crime
prevention advice to neighbourhood concerns.
Sarah England told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We are pleased to
announce the recruitment of some new volunteers and new extended
opening times. We aim to keep the Pod open as much as we can and
could not do this without the help of our fantastic volunteers.
We will once again run some monthly themes and hold specific events,
so watch this space."
Highbridge beat team are looking to work with local agencies and
charities to run some regular 'pop-in' sessions at the Pod in
order to provide the local community with access to a wider range
of information and services that are available to them. Any local
charity or agencies which are interested should contact PCSOs
Sarah England or Peter Williams at Burnham Police Station.
