Hackney residents are being given another excuse to visit the beautifully restored Stoke Newington Town Hall on Saturday March 13 when the doors are open for them to meet the teams that help keep Hackney safe.

The Community Safety Open Day provides residents with a chance to chat and share views with stall holders from the Safer Neighbourhoods Police and Community Safety teams, Hackney Council’s Domestic Violence, Noise Nuisance teams as well as Trading Standards and the Fire Service. There will also be stalls set out by the RSPCA and other voluntary and community groups, whose aim is to protect the safety of Hackney residents.

All stall holders will provide information and advice on local services available to residents. The teams are also keen to engage with the public to find out their views on the services currently on offer to protect residents’ safety in Hackney.

Cllr Alan Laing, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods said: “This is Hackney residents’ chance to meet the real people who are tasked with protecting them from crime, anti-social behaviour and unscrupulous retailers. If residents are worried about anything related to crime or safety in their neighbourhoods, they should come to the Open Day to ask for information and advice straight from the people whose job it is to keep them safe.”

Refreshments will be served all day with free lunches from 12 noon.

The event is organised by the Hackney Community Engagement Board, and all visitors will be invited to take part in a community safety survey.
