Car project boost
THREE cars have been bought in order to promote safety campaigns across the south Lincolnshire area.
The three Skoda Roomsters were purchased thanks to a grant from the Government’s Accelerated Neighbourhoods and Partnership and were given to the South Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership.
They will be available to use by all members of the partnership in the South Holland and South Kesteven districts, which includes both district council community safety teams, the police and the fire service.
They are equipped with magnetic removable signage that can be used to promote campaigns to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, as well as environmental projects.
One of the cars was used as part of South Kesteven District Council’s “Cleaner, Greener, Safer” promotion at Bourne’s Well Head Festival on Saturday, June 5, and will be in action again at the Riverside Festival in Stamford next month.
The council’s community safety officer Sandy Kavanagh said: “This new car will be a fantastic tool for us moving forward and having the ability to brand it with information about our community projects is invaluable.”
