Free bike tagging events held in South Sefton
Sefton Council has partnered with Merseyside Police to offer free bike tagging events in the borough.
Four bike tagging events will take place between May 28 and May 30 in South Sefton to help secure and protect pedal bikes by using specialist marking kits which aim to deter thieves.
Sefton Council has donated £1,100 from South Sefton ward funding to Merseyside Police to allow them to secure a limited number of bike marking kits, which will then be given out free on a first come first serve basis to residents.
Four bike tagging events will be held at:
Tuesday, May 28: Maghull Community Police Station from 4pm-6pm.
Wednesday, May 29: Aintree Youth and Community Centre from 10am-12pm.
Thursday, May 30: Christ Church Youth and Community Centre from 12pm to 2pm.
Thursday, May 30: Litherland Youth and Community Centre from 3pm to 5pm.
Cllr Trish Hardy, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing, said: “We are delighted to have funded these security kits through local ward funding.
“These kits help assist Merseyside Police in deterring bike thefts and give our residents and communities added peace of mind.
“We know these tagging events are very popular so please take advantage of this service.”
