Car project boost

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Hobson's Choice -

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.”
