The South Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) has supported a community fair in Hexthorpe Park, Doncaster.

The fair, held on Thursday 4th April, saw various organisations having stalls, including the VRU, the Office of the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) and South Yorkshire Police (SYP).

Alongside the stalls and games such as swingball, there was face painting, hula hooping, a bouncy castle, and an inflatable slide.

The VRU attended the event to chat to local people and raise awareness about the work the Unit does.

Graham Jones, Head of the South Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit said: “It was great to see so many people out enjoying the Easter holidays at the Hexthorpe community fair, despite the rainy weather.

“A huge thank you to the organisers for putting on the event, and for inviting the VRU to attend – it was good to have the opportunity to meet people in Hexthorpe, listen to their concerns, and speak to them about the work the VRU does.”
