I have always felt that safety is one of the most important things in life. If we do not look after ourselves and each other there is no telling what kind of trouble we could end up in; whether that be an accidental slip/trip or being vigilant when it comes to criminal activity.
Since retiring I have had more time to think about these such issues; especially when I am out doing my favourite activity; walking.
I felt like being able to combine these things would make a brilliant use of my time and so I spoke with ubu about the possibilities that were out there.
Through these conversations the opportunity arose to deliver leaflets voluntarily for the local police force.
These information booklets include such important information as neighbourhood watch schemes, pending events and safety in the community.
I jumped at the opportunity and have been doing it ever since. Not only does this help to maintain my health but also it has helped me build a great relationship with the local officers, So I feel safer than ever!
It’s a wonderful outcome for me as I know I am playing a crucial role in the security of the people I care about most; my local community.
