Andy volunteers to support community safety
Article date: 21 Nov 2012

The George Hotel, in Whittlesey, celebrated its second birthday in July.

Since the outlet opened, pub manager Andy Hewson has been working hard to ensure that the town’s biggest pub provides a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for his staff and customers alike.

Andy has been working closely with his local police and council, getting involved in the newly launched Fenland Businesses Against Crime (FENBAC) initiative and taking on the position of secretary.

This is a voluntary role, all undertaken during Andy’s own free time.

The scheme’s members meet once a month to discuss issues and work together to help to prevent antisocial and criminal behaviour, as well as bringing improvements to the area.

A new Police run website SIRCS (Secure Incident Reporting and Empowering Communities System) allows these local businesses to access information and photographs, identifying local trouble-makers, shoplifters and criminals.

Andy, pictured left with (l to r) licensing team officer Julie Hanrahan, FENBAC Chair Roger Ravanhinsbergh and PSCO Sue Clarke said: “The local police is pleased with how the scheme is working. We have brought a lot of people together, in a positive approach to community issues.”

PSCO Sue Clarke, licensing and ASB Team Cambridgeshire Constabulary, said: “Andy does some fantastic work with us.

“His involvement and the enthusiasm which he has brought to the FENBAC team, with regards to SIRCS, is great. He is a credit to Wetherspoon.”
