The Safer Sandwell Partnership campaign, now in its eighth year, runs for six weeks and includes a focus week for each of the six towns.
Safer 6 is all about partner organisations targeting their efforts and providing extra reassurance during the darker nights, fireworks and bonfire season – a time when crime and anti-social behaviour can rise.
Sandwell Mayor Councillor Ahmadul Haque MBE will officially launch the campaign at a special open day at 10.30am on Saturday 23 September. The event at Haden Cross Community Fire Station, Halesowen Road, Cradley Heath, runs from 10am to 4pm and everyone is welcome.
Get crime prevention advice from West Midlands Police and Sandwell Crime Prevention Panel, watch a chip pan fire demonstration by West Midlands Fire Service and check out Sandwell Council’s Youth Bus promoting young people’s services.
Enjoy music with Black Country Radio and learn about getting fit and active with Sandwell Leisure Trust.
Attractions include face painting, glitter tattoos, a bouncy castle, dance, make-up sessions, a raffle, refreshments and much more.
