Free property and home security events come to the district

Date:   9 February 2024       

Residents will have the chance to gain advice on how to keep their home and property safe from crime at free events across the Malvern Hills District.

Organised by Malvern Hills District Council, the drop in events will offer advice on a wide range of preventative security measures to reduce the likelihood of being a victim of theft or burglary.

Trained officers from the council’s Community Safety Team will be on hand to discuss any crime prevention questions and offering advice on how to maximise the chances of having stolen property rightfully returned.

Items covered at the event include physical home security measures for doors, windows, locks, CCTV, perimeter security including hedges, fencing, CCTV and lighting, and a free home property marking service.

The free drop in events will be held on the following dates:

  • Thursday 29 February, at The Pump Rooms, Tenbury Wells, from 5pm - 7pm.
  • Thursday, 21 March, at Hanley Swan Village Hall, from 5pm - 7pm.

Look out for more planned events from April onwards.

Cllr Natalie McVey, responsible for Community Safety at Malvern Hills District Council, said: “These events are a great way to raise community awareness, give advice and practical tips, and help reduce the fear of crime. The Malvern Hills District is a low crime district, and we want to keep it that way.”
