PC Will Morgan-Griffiths got off to a flying start as beat manager for Hoole and Newton by donating more than 20 bicycles to a local charity.
On Monday 27 February PC Morgan-Griffiths delivered the bikes, which had been stored by Chester Local Policing Unit’s property office, to the Bren Project.
The Bren Project is a small independent charity offering people with learning disabilities and autism the opportunity to experience supported, bespoke work placements in Chester and the surrounding area. The aim being to create a more inclusive workplace.
The bikes were either lost property or recovered stolen bikes which had never been claimed and some were damaged, giving the team at the Bren Project the perfect opportunity to get stuck in to renovating the cycles, learning new skills, and importantly the confidence in themselves and their abilities.
PC Morgan-Griffiths said:
“As the new beat manager for Hoole and Newton I am responsible for reducing crime and anti-social behaviour in the local area as well as increasing public confidence in the police service. In the coming weeks, months, and years I will work with local stakeholders and members of the public to prioritise and address issues that affect our community.
“In my effort to introduce myself to the local communities, I made a beeline for the Bren Project which is committed to supporting people with disabilities and creating a diverse work place. It was great to see the work they do and see people learning new skills and creating opportunities.
“I will be of course holding surgeries in the community so that anyone with any policing concerns can have their voice and feel supported by their local officers. You can also follow us Facebook to to keep up to date with your local policing.”
