Families enjoyed a picnic with police in Shipley Country Park as part of a scheme to help keep kids entertained and let adults speak to officers on an informal basis.

Pictured above are Billy Edgeley, Beth and James Elliott with police community support officer Vicky Hill. Similar events will take place betweennoon and 2pm at Queen Street Recreation Ground, Langley Mill, on Friday, August 16, and at Charles Hill Recreation Area, Loscoe, on Thursday, August 29.

PC Sarah Allcock said: “We came up with the idea because we wanted to offer something a little bit different to a normal police surgery, and to appeal to families.”
