"It is a major plus we have the ability to remain on patch for the vast majority for our shifts and that the local community will have access to their own community office where the Neighbourhood Beat Team can discuss any issues or concerns they have.

"It will be best to make an appointment for these discussions as the office will not always be manned, due to the dedicated team being out on cycle and foot patrol.

"This move would not have been possible without the kind donations from Tesco, Wickes, Countryside Developments and the Station Masters Caf�, plus the Church itself for allowing us to rent the office.
