Meet your local bobby

NEIGHBOURHOOD policing surgeries will be held in Heddon on the Wall this afternoon (Thursday) and Ponteland next week.

The sessions give members of the public the chance to meet members of the East Tynedale Neighbourhood Police Team and they are encouraged to discuss crime and anti-social behaviour issues.

The Heddon drop-in event will be held at Mithras Gardens between 2pm and 3pm.

The Ponteland session will take place on Saturday, August 20 in Merton Hall, Merton Way, from 10am to 11am.
