Some of you may have joined us by being involved with our online ‘Keep Connected’ Zoom sessions over the past few months. These sessions are providing opportunities for NHW members and wider communities to advance their knowledge in all things such as crime prevention & fraud to allotment security & social media. Our aim is to provide as much information to our members enabling you to feel better informed and to be much more aware of falling victim to any potential crimes.
We have a full week of online sessions booked in for the beginning of August. Take a look at the list below and drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your place.
Don’t forget these are all FREE for the Humberside area so spread the word amongst your community groups, the more the merrier we say!
