POLICE will be in the town centre today to talk about about concerns following various incidents of alleged rapes.
The local neighbourhood team will be at Craftology, Union Street just of the High Street in Stroud Town Centre around 10.am to 1pm to provide advice and support.
“Please come along and talk to us about any concerns you may have.” read a neighbourhood alert.
“There will also be safety packs handed out to members of the public.
“The safety packs will include a door jammer, torch, whistle and a personal attack alarm.”
The owner of the Craftology Shop, Chrissie Lowery, has launched an initiative to safeguard women following recent rapes and attacks.
Her scheme invites anyone who feels they are being followed or under threat to be able to access safe places locally.
Shops, businesses and pubs are also being encouraged to offer a safe space to anyone who feels threatened.
Further details regarding the scheme being created can be viewed on the following website safespacescheme.org
