Bishop's Stortford residents are invited to attend a community information event on 14 September, from 4:00pm to 7:00pm.

The event will take place at the ex-Charringtons House car park, offering residents an opportunity to discover the wealth of help and support available to them.

The aim of the event is to connect local organisations with the public and share vital information about their services. Additionally, the stalls at the event have been designed to be interactive, with some featuring children’s activities, making it a family-friendly occasion that combines valuable information with a touch of fun.

Organisations attending include:
•    The Police
•    The Fire Services
•    The Citizen’s Advice Bureau
•    The Food Bank
•    Dogs Trust
•    Safer Places
•    Clarion Housing Association
•    The East Herts’ Healthy Hub
•    Red Kite

PCSO Clare Andrews, from the Police Safer Neighbourhood Team, emphasised the importance of community engagement: "Community engagement is vital to ensure that we're focusing on the issues that matter most to local residents and giving them the tools and advice they need to help prevent them from becoming victims of crime. Events such as this also allow us to update members of the public on the work their local policing team is doing to keep people safe."

Councillor Sarah Copley added: "This information event represents a great opportunity for our community to come together and access the support they may need on a wide range of issues. In today’s difficult times, it’s even more important that residents know where to turn to raise their concerns, seek support, or ask for advice.”
