Pride In Houghton Day - Clean up for the town on April 25th - Join in!

‘Pride in’ days aim to improve the general environment of a location, provide crime prevention advice and are an opportunity for local agencies to engage with the general public. 

Partnership Working

The Community Safety Partnership is working with Houghton Regis Town Council, partner agencies and public and voluntary organisations to achieve these aims.  Locations and priorities for Pride in are chosen from data obtained from Bedfordshire Police and partners with additional information provided by local communities.

Pride In Details

Pride in Houghton Regis will take place on Friday 25th April  9.30am-2.00pm. 

Partners will gather in the Morrisons car park in Houghton Regis to deliver crime prevention advice, support and education for the local community.  A secondary location for partnership activity will be near Bedford Square, Houghton Regis.
