Birstall cycle hub proves to be a great hit

Officers from the Birstall Safer Neighbourhood team together with the Leicestershire Police Road Safety team held a bike hub event in Birstall on Saturday 20th April 2013.

The event was a great success with over 60 people attending with their bikes. A large number of free high visibility backpacks were given away, and 35 bikes engraved with their post-code. There was also an opportunity to purchase bike lights and d-locks. During the event a City and Guilds qualified mechanic carried out free cycle safety checks. Members of Birstall Neighbourhood Watch were also at the event providing crime prevention advice.
