Officers from Kettering Safety Community Team will be holding a cycle awareness event at the rear of Kettering Police Station in London Road, on Saturday, January 19, between 10am and 12.30pm.

Free bicycle lights, bought through Kettering Council, will be given to the first 30 cyclists between five and 15-years-old, who attend with their bikes.

People are invited to go along and meet their local officers who will also etch your postcode onto the bottom of the cycle frame to help prevent theft, as well as offer advice on security and staying safe when cycling on the darker nights.
