Community safety is given a boost

COMMUNITY safety teams have been given a boost by a Hampshire vehicle recycling firm.

Silverlake Automotive Recycling, based in Shedfield, has donated £5,000 to the Bobby Scheme, which sends a Bobby fitter to visit the homes of the elderly and crime victims to offer safety and security advice and install safety and security equipment.

Managing director Allen Prebble said: ‘Silverlake has a long tradition of building strong ties with the community we work in.

‘We see it as a privilege to support the Bobby Scheme’s commitment to protecting the elderly and vulnerable within our community – it’s a major contribution towards community safety in Hampshire.’
