Hundreds of people throughout Gwynedd made the most of a roadshow which visited towns across the county recently as part of the Home Office ‘Not in my Neighbourhood’ campaign.

The roadshow arranged by the Gwynedd Community Safety Partnership visited Bangor, Caernarfon, Porthmadog and Bala, and was supported by Tesco. The roadshow promoted the work which is already being undertaken to ensure that Gwynedd is a safe place to live.

As part of the roadshow, the names of all of those came along and expressed their opinions were put into a draw, with the winner, Mrs Gweneth Evans, of Llandanwg, near Harlech receiving £50 worth of Tesco vouchers.

Councillor John Wyn Williams, who leads on Care in Gwynedd Council said:

"We were very pleased to see so many members of the public dropping in to the roadshow so that they could see for themselves the important work which is being done to make our communities safe for all of us.

"The Gwynedd Community Safety Partnership plays a vital role in bringing together the key agencies who work to tackle crime, anti-social behaviour and substance misuse. By working together we can ensure that we respond appropriately and consistently to the needs of local communities."

The national week-long campaign led by the Home Office promoted better understanding of what is being done locally to tackle crime and to remind people of the large number of public services that play a vital part in driving down crime. The Gwynedd Community Safety Partnership was selected as one of just four Welsh partnerships to take part in the ‘Not in my Neighbourhood’ campaign.
