New Forest Show
Victim Support attended the New Forest Show which ran across three days in July.
The event included show jumping, animal competitions and local produce markets. It was important for us to attend to inform the local community of the Victim Care Service and to promote how we can help victims of crime; especially in relation to rural crime.
We attended alongside the Police and Crime Commissioner and his team, Restorative Solutions and also Hampshire Police; who were also there to discuss local issues, rural crime and community safety.
The event was very successful with 98,000 people attending throughout the three days.
If you have been a victim of rural crime or are worried about this issue, you can call us for support now or for free rural crime prevention advice you can visit Hampshire Police website: https://www.hampshire.police.uk/advice/advice-and-information/rc/rural-crime/rural-crime-prevention/.
