Protect your bike from thieves at free events
Residents will have the chance to keep their bikes safe from thieves at a series of bike marking events across Wychavon district.
Organised by Wychavon District Council, bike marking is a method that consists of applying a unique identifiable number to the frame of the bike, which is then registered with the National Bike Register Database.
This reduces the risk of a bike being stolen and if stolen, it makes it easier to report and find it again.
The free events will follow social distancing guidelines at all times. Slots of 15 minutes will be available and booking is essential.
They will be held on the following dates:
- Tuesday, 27 October:
6am-9am Evesham Railway Station
10am-1pm Evesham Viaduct Car Park
- Thursday, 29 October:
6am-9am Droitwich Spa Railway Station
10am-1pm St Andrews Square, Droitwich (outside public toilets)
- Friday, 30 October:
6am-9am Honeybourne Railway Station
10am-1pm Chapman Court (ASDA), Pershore
2pm-4pm Football Club car park, Broadway
Cllr Rob Adams, Portfolio Holder for Community Engagement, Culture and Sport at Wychavon District Council, said: "By marking your bike, this provides peace of mind that your bike is safe from thieves. We want to reassure people that the sessions will follow social distancing measures at all times".
