PC Trevor Moody said: "We are looking forward to meeting people on
10th January and hope they bring their Christmas presents and other
valuables to be marked."

"I would like to thank the management of Bouverie Place for letting
us use one of their units to do the marking and we really appreciate
their help."

If you are unable to attend the event you can contact your
neighbourhood officer or KCC Warden to ask about security marking in
your neighbourhood.

owners if property is lost or stolen.

Wednesday 17th December: 2.30 pm to 6 pm, Folkestone town centre

Winter campaign. Anyone is welcome to bring an item to be security
marked absolutely free."
