Don’t drop your diamond plans - call SAG instead

Advice is on hand for residents looking to organise a street party or event to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee thanks to Central Bedfordshire Council and its partners in the Emergency Services.

The Central Bedfordshire Safety Advisory Group (SAG) - formed by Central Bedfordshire Council, Bedfordshire Police, Bedfordshire Fire & Rescue and Ambulance services - will be running a number of local Road Shows to offer free guidance on planning and organising street parties or other community events to celebrate 60 years of the Queen being on the throne.

Cllr Brian Spurr, executive member for Sustainable Communities Services said: "Residents up and down Central Bedfordshire are looking forward to celebrating the Jubilee and the Council and its partner agencies will do all it can to help them arrange a safe and fun event.

"Already we have waived our fees regarding road closures and this service is yet another way we can help."

The SAG Road shows will be taking place in March at a range of locations across Central Bedfordshire, where residents and event organisers can come and discuss their proposed events for some free advice and guidance on organising and running their event safely .

Road Shows will be taking place in Biggleswade, Shefford, Flitwick, Dunstable and Leighton Buzzard from the 14th to the 16th March 2012.

Members of the public are welcome to drop in to any of these sessions, or they can ring in advance to book a time slot to avoid having to wait. For more information on times and dates contact Guy Quint on 0300 300 4386 or Nicola Preston on 0300 300 4256.
