Meeting to discuss making Gilford safer

BANBRIDGE Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) are working with Gilford Area Community Police Liaison Committee (CPLC) to facilitate a meeting for communities in the Gilford area looking at ways in which local people can make where they live safer.

The meeting will be on Tuesday, October 16, at 7.30pm in Laurencetown Community Centre on Drumnascamph Road, and it will be chaired by the Gilford CPLC chairperson, Mrs Bernie Scullion.

The local PSNI Neighbourhood Policing Team officers will be attending to give an update on crime statistics, policing and Neighbourhood Watch issues across the communities of Gilford, Laurencetown and Scarva.

An SELB youth worker will be coming along with local young people to discuss how work has been on-going towards a registered youth club to help provide a focus for young people in the area.

You’ll also be able to comment about how features of the planned riverside facility adjacent to the Gilford community centre and the play area in Laurencetown could be enhanced or included to make these developments feel and be safer for local users.

Everyone is very welcome to attend this informal community meeting and tea, coffee and biscuits will be available from 7.15pm .
