IF you don't want to lose some of your precious Christmas presents then take them along to ASDA in Biggleswade on Saturday where a police team will postcode them.
The crime prevention team from Biggleswade police station will be in the store from 10am until 2pm to postcode anything from bikes to mobile phones.
"Postcoding not only helps people safeguard their possessions but if they are stolen helps police return them to their rightful owner," said store marketing co-ordinator Zoe Homfray-Cooper.
"The store has always supported the police on all their initiatives and we feel this is important and it is free."
Monday sees another initiative launched at the store when the NHS Stop Smoking Campaign in Bedfordshire is unveiled. Also there will be a fire prevention team handing out free smoke detectors.
The event will run from 9am until 4.30pm with Biggleswade mayor Cllr Wendy Smith visiting in the morning.

"Stopping smoking and making homes safe is of great importance especially with the ban on smoking in public places becoming law during the summer," added Mrs Homfray-Cooper.
