Essex Police reinstate beat surgeries in Thaxted
ESSEX Police have found an alternative venue for the �regular beat surgeries in Thaxted.
As we reported some weeks ago, the surgeries were withdrawn from the Community Information Centre because of financial constraints.
However, mirroring a �partnership initiative already in place in other areas of the county, the new beat �surgeries will be held in Thaxted Library in Watling Street.
The first surgery will be held on Tuesday May 24 between 4pm and 6pm, and will then be held every �Tuesday between 4pm-6pm and Fridays between 10am-noon.
Uttlesford district commander Chief Insp Alyson Wilson said: “We are pleased to announce this new venue working in partnership with the Essex Library Service.
