Cyclists are invited to take their bikes along to a security marking event with PCSO Barrie Dodd from Kettering Safer Community Team later this month.

People can take their cycles to the free marking event at Halfords in Northfield Avenue, Kettering on Saturday, June 15, from 1pm to 5pm where technicians from the store will also be conducting basic cycle safety checks.

PCSO Dodd said: “These marking events are always popular and the support of Halfords staff is much appreciated.

“There are lots of benefits of having a bike marked.

“It makes the bike less attractive to thieves and if it is stolen, and recovered by the police, the bike can be easily identified and returned to its owner.”
