Community Safety Day 2008

Thursday, 10 July 2008
A packed free day out for the whole family, with an exciting range of high-flying demonstrations and displays, is coming to Pencester Gardens on Saturday 19 July from 11am to 4pm, with the Community Safety Day 2008.

The event is being organised by the Dover District Community Safety Partnership, and features a range of displays, including a fly-past from the Kent Air Ambulance and the Coastguard Spotter Plane, circumstances allowing. There will also be a dramatic display from Kent Fire and Rescue, who will be cutting into a car following a simulated road traffic collision, working with St John's Ambulance. There will be other demonstrations from a range of organisations, including the Kent Police dog handling team and a CCTV arrest scenario.

More than 25 other agencies involved in community safety in the Dover District are arranging exhibitions including Children's Centres, Kent Safer Schools, Dover District Council, RNLI, Kent County Council, Kent Crimestoppers, the Crown Prosecution Service and the Primary Care Trust.

The event will provide the chance to find out about the massive range of work helping to keep Dover District a safe place to live, work and visit. Representatives from the 'Talk To Us' campaign will also be at the event, to answer questions and hand out questionnaires. The campaign has been launched by the Community Safety Partnership to find out your views on the issues that affect you.

Nadeem Aziz, Chairman of the Dover District Community Safety Partnership and Chief Executive of Dover District Council said: "We are looking forward to another successful Community Safety Day. The days are a great day out for the family and provide an opportunity to show the community how the partnership works and what we are all doing to make our district an even safer place."
