A POLICE surgery is being opened in Great Broughton.

The events, planned by PC Paula Eccles, the neighbourhood policing team officer for Great Broughton, will be held in the village hall before parish council meetings.

PC Eccles will give advice to residents on security, how to deal with bogus callers and how to set up Neighbourhood Watch schemes.

The first surgery will take place on October 12, followed by November 9, December 7 and January 4, all between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.
