Hello, hello, hello – members of Baldock’s police team delivered a Christmas treat at the town’s community centre when they served a celebration meal to senior citizens.

Community support officers Michelle Trussell and Chris Farrier and Sgt Simon Turner joined the team laying on the meal treat for the third year.

Tucking in were senior citizens who regularly attend the community centre lunch club, some of whom live on their own and cherish the chance to get out of the house and meet friends.

The centre’s Tracey Chapman was in charge of the cooking and she said: “We were delighted that officers from safer neighbourhood team were able to return to help us serve Christmas dinner.

“It is great that our local police officers and PCSOs take part as they are such a key part of our local community.”

Sgt Turner of the Letchworth and Baldock Neighbourhood Team said: “It’s great to get involved. We get the chance to chat to everyone who attends, and it also allows the patrons to get to know us a bit better.”

The centre will also be putting on a similar dinner on Christmas Day for the more vulnerable members of the community.
