Bakewell Brownies to learn about safety

Safer Neighbourhood officers are heading to Bakewell to chat to Brownie youngsters about staying safe when out and about.

PCSO’s Hayley Grundy and Anthony Boswell will be visiting the group on Tuesday, November 19 to chat to the girls about Stranger Danger and road safety awareness.

This will include the importance of telling an adult where they are going, who they are with and when they will be back, not to play near rivers or building sites and not to talk to strangers.

PCSO Hayley Grundy from Bakewell Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “Visiting local groups is a great way for us to engage with youngsters and to get the important messages across about staying safe when out and about.

“It is really important for us to encourage the children to think about their safety, the safety of others and also to teach them about the policing work we do to help keep their communities safe.”

The talk comes as part of the Safer Neighbourhood team’s on-going engagement to advise youngsters about staying safe and raising awareness of the dangers of crime and anti-social behaviour.
