YOUNG farmers from the Bakewell area had a visit from the police last week.

Special Constable Jesse Conquest, who works with the Hathersage Area Safer Neighbouhood Policing Team, visited the group on Wednesday, March 28.

He gave a talk about the types of crime which affect rural communities and the work of the local Safer Neighbourhood policing teams.

SC Conquest said: “The aim behind the visit was to help improve our links with the farming community and to also raise awareness of the recent trends in crime around fuel thefts, and Land Rover Defender thefts.

“The talk was really well received and I had positive feedback from the group. It is important that we communicate and engage with our local farming community and we hope to organise further visits and talks in the future.”

The group, which has around 70 members aged between 10 and 26 years old, meet every Wednesday at Monyash Village Hall.
