PCSO David Said was given an enthusiastic welcome when he dropped in at the group’s Kings Drive HQ to talk to the youngsters about the job, answer their questions, let them try on different uniforms and take a closer look at a police car – even hopping into the driving seat.
The group also used the visit to learn the phonetic alphabet used by police, take their own fingerprints and memorise their home addresses before taking part in a police-style fitness test.
David Said said: “It’s nice to engage with the local children, it’s an important part of community policing. It’s nice for the kids to know who I am and they then feel quite comfortable coming to speak to us.”
Meanwhile the 1st Bishopston Scout Group – now the largest in the district – held its AGM and barbecue last month.
The expanding group is going from strength to strength, say leaders, but new adult volunteers are vital for its future.
Group Scout Leader Mike Banfield will be stepping down next year while Friday Scout Leader Peter Hart is retiring next year after 27 years’ service.
A spokesperson said: “Key roles will need to be filled by new adult volunteers so please consider joining our team.
Both Tuesday and Friday Scout Troop require additional help
so if you’re able to help on a regular basis, please let us
know.”
