New Pubwatch launched in Shefford, Bedfordshire

13/1/20: NPW Regional Representative Steve Evans attended the launch of a new scheme in Shefford.

Members attended the launch of the new scheme at The Bridge and were supported by the local police licensing officer, the Chair of Biggleswade Pubwatch and representatives from both the Central Bedfordshire and Town Councils.

Shefford is only a small town and does not suffer from the type of crime found in larger communities, but the inaugural meeting did highlight that there are ongoing ASB issues caused by local youths which all parties will work to address.

As a result of the meeting, the Town Council generously agreed to support the fledgling scheme by funding their liability insurance for the first year of operation.
