Huthwaite child protection scheme to be rolled out
A new scheme to keep children safe on the streets is set to be rolled out across Huthwaite.
A number of ‘safe stop’ stations are to be set up throughout the village, in a bid to help children in an emergency.Shops and businesses that sign up to the scheme will display notices in their windows and doors, so that children know this is a safe place for them to go if they are scared or have been approached by strangers.
Coun Andrew Harding , Huthwaite and Brierley councillor said,“Any scheme that makes children safer is to be welcomed.
"Residents have the full support of Councillor Tom Hollis and myself. There will obviously have to be DBS and other checks put in place first but the idea of this scheme is essentially a good one.
"We will continue to make the case for more police across Huthwaite and Sutton – as there’s no substitute for a visible police presence.”
