Police Surgery – Welham Green

The Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team are holding a surgery at North Mymms Memorial Hall in Station Road on Tuesday 21 June.

Locals will be able to drop in between 6pm and 7pm to gain useful information such as crime prevention advice and share any concerns they might have.

Free bike-marking will also be on offer. Officers encourage this crime prevention measure because it makes bikes harder to sell on and therefore less attractive to thieves.

PCSO Sam Griffin, from the Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “We’re looking forward to meeting lots of residents and finding out their views. If there is something that is bothering you, come along and tell us and we’ll do everything we can to help.

“Don’t forget to bring along your bikes too so that you can get them security marked. It only takes seconds and will give you peace of mind.”

You can receive police messages about a range of topics including burglaries, scams and missing people in your local area by signing up to owl.co.uk/herts.

You can use the Police community voice platform ‘echo’ to let them know what you think they should be prioritising in your area. Your feedback will help towards shaping local policing priorities, initiatives and campaigns. Visit the following and tell them your thoughts.

Carers Week 2022

Support for Carers in Hertfordshire

Do you give unpaid care to a family member or friend with a disability, addiction, frailty or long-term mental or physical illness? If so, then you are a carer.

At the last count there were more than 108,000 registered unpaid carers in Hertfordshire. But many more people are out there looking after family members, friends and neighbours who may not know about the support available. Unpaid carers face many challenges, often juggling complex home situations and work or study.

Hertfordshire County Council is committed to supporting carers, recognising the vital role they play in supporting so many people across the county. This year it is spending more than £2.3million commissioning services to make sure that carers have access to the support they need in their local community. These services are being delivered by local charities, such as Carers in Hertfordshire, Age UK, Turning Point and Crossroads Care. This support has been increased through the council’s Covid Recovery Strategy.

The council also runs a huge range of day services and clubs which are also a source of respite and support.
