Posted on 15th September 2014

Members of the public have the chance to pick up advice about bike security and get their bike marked during a special police and Safer Spondon event taking place this week.

Officers from the local Spondon Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team will be running the event in conjunction with Safer Spondon, a sub-group that operates under the local Neighbourhood Board and supports crime prevention events.

The event will take place at Cyclo Monster Cycle shop, on Derby Road, Spondon between 10.00am and 3.00pm on Saturday, September 20.
