Members of the North West Ipswich Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) will be even more visible from now on, thanks to generous support from a local company – West Engineering.
The team approached the Whitehouse Employers Association with the aim of gaining sponsorship for a number of team bicycles for patrolling their area.
As a result of the meeting, a number of companies expressed an interest in assisting but the Managing Director of West Engineering – Dale Smith wished to donate £250 for a whole bike.
The team approached a number of local bike dealers but Darren Thomas at Cycle Revolution on Foxhall Road offered the best deal by providing a £350 bike for £250.
The bike was bought on Wednesday 9th April 2008 and has already been put to good use. The bike will be used to get around the housing estates and Industrial Estate particularly at night.
