Roadshows will be held between 11-1pm on the following dates and locations:

• November 23 – Festival Place, Basingstoke.
• December 1 – Hart Shopping Centre, Fleet.

The roadshows have been organised by the Safer North Hampshire Community Safety Partnership, in partnership with Hampshire Constabulary.

We want you all to have a happy, safe and crime-free festive period. We hope as many residents as possible drop by and chat to our crime prevention team, so we can all enjoy the best time possible.”
