Could you lead village’s ‘well-established’ group?

PUBLISHED: 14:00 18 July 2016


A neighbourhood group which fosters closer relations between communities and the police is in need of a new chairman.

Rhiannon Prys-Owen is stepping down from her role as chairman of the Yatton Partners and Communities Together Group (PACT) at the end of August, after being involved with the group for eight years.

The voluntary role involves liaising with the police and other organisations, managing and publicising consultations, assisting the PACT in setting priorities and managing the group’s monthly public meetings.

Rhiannon said: “Yatton PACT is a well-established group, with volunteers meeting on a regular basis with the local beat officer and PCSOs to address community safety issues and to provide a forum for discussion on both local and national priorities.

“Feeling safe is one of the most fundamental needs we all have as children and adults and the PACT is one initiative that can help create safer communities.”

If you are interested in taking on the role, contact Rhiannon on 07557 410565 or via email at, or contact Jonathan Edwards on 07785 352714 or via
