Protect your bike from thieves at free events
Residents will have the chance to keep their bikes safe from thieves at a series of free bike marking events across the Malvern Hills District.
Organised by Malvern Hills District Council, bike marking is a method that consists of applying a unique identifiable number to the frame of the bike, which is then registered with the National Bike Register Database.
This reduces the risk of a bike being stolen and if stolen, it makes it easier to report and find it again.
The events will follow social distancing guidelines at all times. Slots of 15 minutes will be available and booking is essential.
They will be held on the following dates:
- Monday, 26 October:
6am-9am: Malvern Link Railway Station
10am-1pm: Great Malvern Council House
2pm-4pm: Upton Library
- Wednesday, 28 October:
6am-9am: Great Malvern Railway Station
- Thursday, 29 October:
2pm-4pm: Tenbury Market Square
Cllr Tom Wells, Portfolio Holder for Community Services at Malvern Hills District Council, said: "More of us are cyclists these days. We had a great response to our last Bike Marking event and we encourage people to sign up and take the measures to protect their property from thieves. The sessions will be safe to attend and social distancing measures will be in place at all times".
