The G&NM CSG stand at Motorvation

The Garioch & North Marr Community Safety Group had a stand at the Motorvation! event held at the Grampian Motor Museum in Alford. The event was attended by 2,500 people despite the soft ground conditions.

The photo shows a family group getting security wristbands for the toddlers in the group (see item 1. below).

Among the safety issues being promoted were:

1. Contact wristbands for young children attending the event with their parents.

Unfortunately it is all to easy for children and their parents to lose contact at a big outdoor show. The wristbands have the parent's mobile telephone number or name (not the name of the child) written on them so that, if the child becomes lost, the event organisers can quickly make contact with the parent via mobile phone or via the public address system.

More than a hundred wristbands were given out free of charge at the event.

2. Police HELP notice

A police security notice was handed out free. It comprises a fold out poster containing, on one side some useful crime reduction tips, and on the other a prominently worded message alerting any passers-by to contact the Police. The poster has been designed to combat the perennial problem of bogus callers preying on the elderly or infirm, while at the same time educating motorists on how to reduce the chances of their vehicles and contents being targeted by criminals.
