Holmfirth on Monday 31st January, Andrew Ingham (Vice Chair) attended a Rural Neighbourhood Policing Team community event held at the Civic Hall Holmfirth
This provided the community with a chance to receive information about upcoming operations, what they are doing in the local area and more about the service they provide and gave people a chance to ask questions about recruiting and provide them with information.
The community event was well attended and a great success with local Scout and Beavers clubs in attendance too at the event.

A good evening, with Water Safety advice given out.
