Free property marking event will help keep your items safe
Residents will have the chance to protect their property from thieves at a free property marking event next week.
Organised by Malvern Hills District Council, the event will be held on Wednesday, 2 June from 3pm to 7pm at Pendock Primary School car park.
Officers will be on hand to offer free property security marking and home security advice.
People can bring in bikes, trailers, horse boxes, power tools, gardening equipment, laptops and much more.
A series of methods will be used, including an Overt Property Marking system called CREMARK. This system uses a visible security code made up of a postcode and house number, or two letters of your house name, which makes the item identifiable and traceable.
Other methods will include UV pens and stickers, as well as bike marking. Covid-19 safety measures will be in place at all times.
Cllr Tom Wells, Portfolio Holder for Community Services at Malvern Hills District Council, said: "Property marking is like giving your belongings a unique fingerprint which will help identify them if they are ever stolen or lost. It is a great way of keeping them safe and giving you that extra peace of mind, all for free!".
