Bridlington Town Council would like to support East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Humberside Police to set up more Neighbourhood Watch groups across Bridlington and help promote the sharing of crime prevention information. The purpose of Neighbourhood Watch is to make our local area a safer place to live and to help develop more of a community spirit. Neighbourhood Watch helps reduce your risk of burglary, and some insurance companies offer Neighbourhood Watch residents a reduction in their premium.
If you would be interested in being a coordinator for your street, please call Maureen Yates (Community and Crime Reduction Resilience Officer) on 01482 396380, or via email.
Safe Place Scheme
The Safe Place scheme is a Humberside Police initiative active across the Humber region. Safe Place is a simple scheme to help vulnerable people to stay safe while out and about in their community. Safe Places provide a temporary safe haven, help and support for those in need. This includes:
People with learning disabilities or difficulties
People with dementia
People who need support or assistance while in public
However, anyone who is feeling vulnerable, scared, confused, or lost can also ask for help at a Safe Place. Users carry a Safe Place card which they can show at the Safe Place if they need help. Look out for places in Bridlington with the Safe Place sticker, including the Bridlington Town Council office and the following:
Bridlington Town Council - YO16 4HX
NHS Trainers Bridlington - YO15 2AB
The Community Copshop - YO15 2AR
Tourist Information Centre - YO15 2NP

SANTA HELPS THE MAYOR OF BRIDLINGTON
The Mayor of Bridlington, Councillor Colin Croft, was looking for a really special way to turn on the bigger than ever Christmas tree in King Street in Bridlington this year. He saw that the Bridlington Round Table were unveiling their new sleigh at Tesco in Bridlington and he has asked if he would be able to have the first ride in Santa’s new sleigh and Santa said … YES!
The Bridlington Round Table Chairman, Mr Ian Winterbottom, said “We were delighted to hear from the Mayor, the Bridlington Round Table and Santa are more than happy to assist him on this exciting community Christmas occasion”
The Mayor of Bridlington is absolutely thrilled that Santa can help him turn on the Christmas tree lights in Bridlington this year and is really looking forward to going to the Bridlington Round Tables Sleigh Unveiling Event at Tesco on Sunday 25th November. The event starts at 2pm until 5pm and afterwards Santa will take the Mayor to King Street to help him turn on the Christmas Tree lights.
~ Everyone is welcome to come and join the fun ~
