Police reach out to rural communities

Share your neighbourhood concerns at ‘Have your say’ surgeries in villages.

Police and partner agencies are reaching out to rural communities around Honiton and are urging residents to have their say about local concerns.

Neighbourhood issues can be discussed during a series of surgeries in villages.

PCSO Phil Anning says the surgeries will give villagers “the opportunity to tell us about concerns that matter to you in your neighbourhood”.

He told the Midweek Herald: “Your local ‘Have your say’ teams are keen to gather this information and want to take action to tackle your concerns.”
