People got a taste of what advice and services are on offer across Weston’s estates.

The Bournville and Oldmixon One Team partnership hosted a community information event at the For All Healthy Living Centre, in Lonsdale Avenue, to showcase the work of organisations including Alliance, Addaction, Age UK Somerset, Westonworks and Avon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service.

PC Nick Falconer said: “We hold these events to engage with all members of the community and tell people what we are doing.

“We want people to come and talk to us as we are here to help and be proactive on the estates.”

Youngsters learnt about the emergency services’ jobs and were allowed to try on policing gear and listened to talks from fire crews.

Pupils from Weston’s Hans Price Academy also performed a flash mob and dances.

The One Team will use feedback to shape future events.
