Proud to be Working in Partnership

Witham Chamber of Commerce is proud to have teamed up with Witham Neighbourhood Watch and Essex Police to secure facilities for a Police surgery to be held at the Hub in the Newlands Shopping Centre from March.
Essex Police are keen to engage with anyone who has any concerns and will welcome people to drop by. It will be an opportunity to discuss issues with a member of the Community Policing Team.
The surgery times and dates will vary and will be posted via social media and, were possible, via the local press, plus Police community meeting signs will be displayed at the Hub when Essex Police are in situ. Arrangements may be subject to short notice changes due to operational commitments.
Tina Townsend, Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce said ‘We are pleased to be able to assist with this and feel it’s our way of again showing our support to the town centre by sponsoring the venue as part of our corporate and social responsibility.’
Sergeant Tom Bastendorff of Essex Police said ‘we are very grateful for this offer and thank both organisations for their support. The position of the hub is very visible and easy to get to for everyone. We look forward to welcoming people to discuss their Policing and Community Safety concerns’ ‘If you need to report an incident or crime, please do not wait for the surgery, please report it as soon as possible online at or by dialling 101 (or 999 in an emergency)’
