Over the past year a project called Support4Shefford has been held on every second Saturday morning during Shefford’s Farmers Market.
The object of the scheme is to allow any groups or individuals who can offer any kind of support to the public to showcase their service.
Representatives of all the usual groups including Neighbourhood Watch, Speed Watch, Street Watch and the Police have all attended.
There are also people from the Good Neighbour Group, local churches, the Housing Associations, youth workers and Shefford Medical Centre who have attended.
It has proved fairly successful with many of the different groups forming their own communication links. The next event will be this Saturday.
There are also plans to hold special themed events every three months this year.
