Novel ‘calendar’ highlights rural safety thumbnailLexie Scott, chairman of Broughshane and District Community Association, PSCP member, councillor Reuben Glover, with members of Broughshane Oil Club and Broughshane and District Community Asociation at the launch of the Oil Club calendar.

MID and East Antrim Borough Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) has launched a novel method of communicating its messages to the rural community.
Broughshane and District Community Association Limited has headlined a colourful 2017 calendar, with the group's Braid Oil Club as the front cover, promoting both the existing reduced cost heating oil scheme and a series of important safety messages.
Funded by an 80% grant from the PCSP, the group has now begun to distribute over 2,200 copies of the A3 size publication to every household within the targeted rural area.
Covering the wards of Broughshane and Slemish, the calendar offers advice on issues such as Road Safety; Domestic Violence; Drugs and Alcohol; Addressing Anti-social Behaviour and an overall building of confidence in policing and reducing crime and the fear of crime.
