AN event in Harwich saw police community support officers join staff from Harwich’s Essex Pedal Power's pop up stall.

Essex Police’s ‘Let’s Talk’ event took place outside B&M in Harwich on January 29.

A community-based project, Essex Pedal Power strives to make a difference by providing Tendring residents with their free orange bikes.

They also offer advice and tips on maintaining your bicycle, as well as keeping it safe and secure.

A police spokesman said: “Officers were also on hand to speak with any residents regarding any issues or concerns they may have in their area.”

‘Let’s Talk’ events are advertised on the Essex Police website.
