ANDOVER’S neighbourhood policing team will be holding a public drop-in session in the Chantry Centre later this week (Thursday, June 9).

Residents are encouraged to go along to ask the Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) any questions, or raise concerns.

They will be joined by a member of staff from Test Valley Borough Council, as well as TVBC councillor for Andover St Mary’s, Iris Andersen.

The drop-in will be held in the shopping centre, in the unit across from Boots, between 10am and 12pm.

This is the second event of its type, known as a Beat Surgery, this year after a successful trial event in March.

Speaking previously to the Advertiser, Cllr Andersen said: “I thought this would be very useful for the residents of Andover. Anybody can come, and speak to them about anything they want. A lot of people don't like calling 101, so if they feel like they have any neighbourhood issues, they can bring them to them.”

She continued: “I just felt like something like this was needed in Andover, to reassure people that they can speak to the officers."
