Invitation to drop-ins

POLICE in Howdon are inviting visitors and residents to attend drop in sessions.

Officers have arranged regular monthly drop-in sessions for residents of Willington Quay and South Howdon, and park users, to speak to their local officers in the park premises in Howdon Lane, Wallsend.

Hour long summer sessions are being held on Tuesday, July 19, from 7pm and Sunday, August 21, from 1pm.

Pc Simon Goonan, from the Wallsend neighbourhood policing team, said: “We want to encourage residents and people who use the park to drop-in to one of our sessions and discuss any policing issues they have.

“By holding these events in the park we aim to speak to people of all ages who use the facilities from families with young children to older people who enjoy using the amenities.

“Officers will be able to update people about the work of the neighbourhood team and how we can help them.”

Anyone who has concerns about crime or disorder where they live, are asked to contact their neighbourhood policing team on 03456 043043 ext 69191.
