Police are backing a range of events in Shirebrook in the run-up to Christmas.

The events, which will run from Wednesday, November 4 to Wednesday, December 16, are part of the Shirebrook Forward ‘NG20’ initiative taking place at Shirebrook Christian Centre on Main Street.

The events have been organised by the Bolsover Partnership which is made up of local service providers and agencies including police, the Bolsover Community Safety Partnership, the Health and Wellbeing Network, the Culture and Tourism Partnership and the Business and Employment Partnership.

Sergeant Mark Church, who is responsible for Shirebrook Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “Local officers are 100 percent behind any initiative that brings cohesion to this great town. We fully support the various events and hope that members of the community get a lot out of them.

“We will be taking part in some of the activities so that residents are able to come and meet members of their local Safer Neighbourhood team to pick up advice and information on community issues.”

Activities include sessions on ‘Taste and See Continental Cuisine,’ a ‘Nite Lite’ Christmas meal and a carol service as well as sports demonstrations, a recruitment drive at the Market Place and a learning disability awareness session at Rhubarb Farm on Hardwick Street in Langwith.

Volunteer translation services for requesting information and completing forms will also be taking place at Shirebrook Contact Centre on Main Street.
