#RURAL EVENT | Community showcase to take place in support of Nottinghamshire’s rural community

People from the rural areas of Nottinghamshire are invited to attend a community engagement day to showcase all things rural.

The big event organised by Nottinghamshire Police is a great way to showcase all the work being done to tackle rural crime and how they work with partners to do this.

Visitors can expect a host of demonstrations, stalls advertising other agencies and the chance to watch first-hand how equipment is used.

The event is open for the whole family to attend on Saturday 16 April, between 10am and 2pm at Newark Showground, Coddington, Newark.

With free parking and the showgrounds café offering a range of tasty treats, it’s set to be a great day for all.

Those attending will be able to watch drone demonstrations, get a behind the scenes look at the police vehicles and quad bikes with local beat officers also on hand for locals to speak with.

This is just a taster of what will be available to see, amongst dozens of other stands advertising the work of partners and other agencies including Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, Search and Rescue and the National Farmers Union.

Inspector Matt Ward, District Commander for Newark and Sherwood, said: “We have planned this event to showcase all the hard work we are putting into protecting are rural community against crime and to showcase some of the brilliant tools we have to combat crime and keep people safe.

“This event is open to all and I would encourage farmers, families, students and businesses to attend and come and talk to our officers and the other partners who will be in attendance.

“It promises to be a fun-filled day with plenty of demonstrations and lots of ways to learn about how Nottinghamshire Police and its partners tackle all things rural.

“With lots of fun activities planned and ways for everyone to get involved, get a first-hand experience and behind the scenes look at some of the police vehicles and watch fascinating demonstrations it’s set to be a great day to be a part of.

“Supporting the people of our rural community is one of our top priorities and holding events like this is a great way to showcase the work we do alongside our partners from all different agencies and speak with the public about even more ways we can help them.” 

Many more partners and agencies are set to be announced in the coming weeks so keep your eyes peeled on your local Facebook pages for updates
