Free bike marking

Free bike marking is being offered next week at the Youth Fair at Eastbourne’s Winter Garden.

On Tuesday (October 28) Eastbourne Police will provide marking free of charge, on provision of an email address and proof of identity to complete the registration.

Each bicycle will then have a unique marking so that police officers, shops and potential purchasers of second-hand bicycles will be able to check within minutes if it is stolen or in the wrong hands.

Officers will be at the entrance of the Winter Garden, Compton Street, Eastbourne between 11.30am and 2pm.
