Funding new Police bikes, 2008

The RSA Trust has awarded a grant of £1238 to the Enfield Lock Safer Neighbourhood Team to purchase two new police bikes to help with their patrols on Enfield Island Village.

PCSO Suzy Tether approached the Trust and requested the funding to purchase the bikes to enable them to respond to calls more quickly and be more efficient.

Suzy said, ‘I have been patrolling Enfield Island Village for over two years so have known Gary Walker and the work carried out by the RSA Trust for a while. They have always supported and praised the work we do around the village and have always encouraged us to make contact with them in any way if it will benefit the residents that live here’.

The Chairman of the RSA Trust, Gary Walker, said ‘The RSA Trust is proud to support, in a small way, the work of the Police on Enfield Island Village. I was delighted when Suzy approached me and explained why having these bikes would help them in their role. We look forward to continuing to work together to create the best possible and safest environment for our community.’
