Tewkesbury Holds a Reclaim Your Bike Day

Posted: 18/12/2007 13:04:46

Police in Tewkesbury are holding a 'Return Your Bike Day' in January in a bid to get some of the unclaimed cycles returned to their rightful owners.

If you have had your bike stolen in the last six weeks in the town then on Saturday 5 January 2008 between 10.30am and 12.30pm you can attend Tewkesbury Police Station to see if it has been recovered.

PC Phil Groom from Tewkesbury Safer Community Team said; "We have amassed a huge collection of bicycles found in the town over the last six weeks. Unfortunately we have not been able to locate all their rightful owners.

"We are asking anyone who has had a bike stolen recently to call in on Saturday 5 January between 10.30am and 12.30pm and local Police Community Support Officers will be on hand to check documentation and hopefully return their bike to them."

All of the retrieved cycles at the station have very little in the way of identification, which makes it extremely difficult to return them to their rightful owners.

PC Groom added; "The aim of the day is not only to return these bikes to their rightful owners but also to offer advice regarding crime prevention to stop cycles being stolen again.

"Over the last year no fewer than seventy two bicycles had been stolen from Tewkesbury alone, the majority having been left unlocked by their owners.

"Many of these cycles are later recovered but are unable to be returned to their owners for various reasons, the main one being they are unable to describe them. "

If you follow these simple steps it should help prevent your bike being stolen or if it is stolen it will make it easier to ensure it is returned to you if recovered.

* Always ensure your bike is secure with a suitable lock, even if you are leaving it for a short period of time.
* Try to leave your bike in a well lit area, preferably that is covered by CCTV
* Store your bike in a locked shed or garage, don't leave unattended in the garden.
* Make a note of the make, model and serial number
* Get your bike postcoded, PCSOs can help you with this
* Take a colour photograph of your bike
