Fingerprint fun at Hailsham police event in half term

It was half term fun for police in Hailsham as they joined partner organisations for a free event at Hailsham East Community Centre last Tuesday.

Organised by the Community and Regeneration Team at Wealden District Council, there were lots of activities on offer including arts and crafts and a play zone, as well as advice on healthy eating, exercise and fire safety. Local officers were on hand to give ‘guided tours’ of the CCTV van and tips on crime prevention. PCSO Jack Matthews, said, “It was great to see so many residents enjoying themselves at this community event. The children loved making their fingerprint bookmarks, and receiving their police badges.”
