This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's Helen Buckland, Principal Risk and Exploitation Partnership Officer, for the attention of all schools to share with families.
Slough Borough Council have arranged a free event on 26th March in Slough High street (near the old BHS), from 10:00 to 14:00.
The police will be attending to Security Mark bikes using Selectamark and BikeRegister QR Codes (which are used in conjunction with the BikeRegister app.)
The Council is funding this, so the service is free to anyone bringing their bike along.
This means bikes are registered on a database which means they are less likely to be stolen and much more likely to be returned to their owner if recovered. The Police Community Support Officers will also be happy to talk about other crime and community safety matters.
Neuron will be attending with a static hire e-scooter to talk about safe e-scooter riding and helmet wearing, as well as giving the chance for people to see and ask questions about e-scooters.
We hope to also be able to offer Dr Bike services, whereby a skilled bike mechanic will carry out on-the-spot bike checks and minor repairs. The mechanic can also advise riders about maintenance.
