Police surgery continues to be popular

A POLICE surgery event was held at Gretna last week to raise their concerns in person rather than over the phone.

Running on July 14, the surgery saw PC Lee Barnfather speak to local residents about issues around the town at the Richard Greenhow Centre on July 14.

Members of Gretna’s community council praised PC Barnfather for his work, as well as the shopkeepers that allowed posters advertising the event to be placed in their stores, and the residents that attended.

The surgeries have been a success since starting a few months ago. It comes after a raft of vandalisms in the town in April which saw several properties, businesses and even the primary school targeted.

Community council chairman Alex Thomson revealed that the vandalism has stopped for now and thanked the police for their efforts.

He said: “Thankfully the vandalism has died down. Fair play to the police as they have patrolled the town in unmarked cars and it seems to be working.

“It’s a shame we had to write a letter and share our concerns to put pressure on for that help we needed at the time.”

The next surgery is scheduled for Saturday, August 20 from 10 am-2 pm at the same location.
