Safer places scheme launched in North Walsham

01 May 2015 A new scheme, which aims to give vulnerable and disabled people a place to go if they find themselves in need of help whilst out and about in North Walsham, is being launched today, Friday 1 May 2015. Norfolk Safer Places is adapted from a national project called The Safe Place Scheme and helps to give disabled people somewhere to go if they feel vulnerable. The scheme has been successfully launched previously in Norwich, King’s Lynn, Fakenham, Attleborough and Gorleston.

Sergeant Duncan Keable, who has helped launch the scheme in the town, said: “This project aims to make North Walsham a safer place to visit and supports some of the more vulnerable members of our community. “Local businesses involved in the scheme will display a sticker in their window showing that they are a designated safer place and that staff there will do all they can to offer help if required. “Meanwhile, vulnerable or disabled people who have signed up to the scheme will receive a yellow card with their name and the telephone numbers of two nominated contacts, which could be a friend, relative or carer.

12 premises have so far agreed to be a safer place in the town and they are: Sainsbury’s; McColls; Christopher’s; Break Charity; The Drug Store; Boots; House of Hobbies; Lidl; Roys as well as Tesco Express in Mundesley and Bacton Cafe and Post Office in Bacton.

Recent vandalism in North Walsham

Police are appealing for information after two UKIP election campaign signs were damaged near North Walsham. Two signs on Trunch Road in Swafield had offensive language and symbols painted on them between 12pm and 12.15pm on Saturday 18 April. Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or noticed any suspicious activity in the area around the times stated.

They are also keen to trace two males who were seen in the area at around the time of the incident who may have information. One of the males is described as white, around 5 ft 8 tall, of very slim build, with black hair and was wearing black with a red stripe around the waist. There is no description of the second male.

Police are also appealing for information after a car was damaged in a supermarket car park in North Walsham. A grey Nissan Almera was parked in the Sainsburys car park on Bacton Road between 10.30am and 11.20am on Monday 20 April. When the owner returned to the car they found a large scratch on the passenger door.

Anyone with information should contact PC Matt Pritty at North Walsham Police Station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
