Free fun at safety day

Free family fun will be on offer on Saturday 21 April, when the annual Safer Gosport community day returns. 

The event, in and around Lawrence Square, High Street from 11am to 2pm, will include kids' activities such as free glitter tattoos, and a chance to see emergency vehicles up close. 

Younger visitors will get a chance to meet a member of TV's PAW Patrol. 

And there will be plenty of free advice on offer, on how residents can help themselves and their loved ones stay safe. 

Residents will be able to take part in a short survey and be entered into a free prize draw, with prizes including a £30 gift card and a free treatment at Affinity Hair & Beauty. 

Cyclists can get their bike security-coded for free, to help them get it back if it's stolen. Cycle locks will be on sale at a discount, and riders can also pick up free reflective cycling kit. 

Young people will have a chance to find out about local projects including Motiv8 Gosport Music Project, the Prince's Trust, Volunteer Police Cadets and Hampshire Youth Commission.  Youth charity Y Services will also be bringing their Y Bus, a mobile service where young people can play games, take part in activities and talk to youth workers.

As well as Gosport Borough Council, organisations planning to attend on the day include Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service, Gosport and Fareham Inshore Rescue Service (GAFIRS), Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, HM Coastguard and Wessex SERV Blood Runners. 

Local Community First Responders will provide CPR demonstrations.

The event is run by Gosport Community Safety Partnership, which includes local councils, police, the fire service, the NHS and other agencies. 

 Representatives from the partnership will be available to answer questions from residents about community safety issues between 11am and 12pm, near the entrance to the Town Hall.

Hampshire Constabulary's District Commander for Gosport, Sharon Woolrich, said: "This is always a great free event, where people can meet some of the local organisations helping to keep them safe, and find out more about what they do.

"It's a fun day, especially for families, but if people have a particular need or concern, there's face-to-face expert advice available too."
