Free panic alarms will be available and officers will be giving advice about outbuilding security.

Sergeant Sharon Hulley said: “As spring approaches and more people think about getting out in the garden, it is important that you give some consideration to making sure your outbuildings or sheds are secure.

“We’ve held similar personal safety events in other areas of Rotherham that were well received by the local community as it gives us a chance to listen to our residents about the issues that affect them or cause them concern.

“In partnership with the council and Wentworth Valley Area Assembly, we work hard to make our communities safer and hope to see residents at the event this afternoon.”
