Meet your local bobbies at ‘surgeries’

THE PRE-Christmas schedule of police ‘surgeries’ in Hucknall kicks off on Saturday (December 3).

The first of December is a beat event at Hucknall Library, running from 11 am to 12.30 pm.

The ‘surgeries’ are seen as a crucial way for local officers to get out and meet the residents in the areas they serve.

It is an opportunity for locals to raise concerns, report problems and even give their local bobbies a pat on the back for the job they do.

After Saturday’s ‘surgery’, attentions switch to one at Holgate Comprehensive School and the Nabbs Lane area on Tuesday December 6, 8 am to 9 am.

George Street will be host on Thursday December 8 from 7 pm to 8 pm. Then it is Eastside Methodist Church on Cavendish Close on Saturday December 10.

The final ‘surgery’ before the Christmas holiday is at Hucknall Leisure Centre on Linby Road on Wednesday December 21 from 2 pm to 3 pm.
