Kent PCSO to meet Chislet parishioners

Our Police Community Support Officer, PCSO Brandon Rains, is holding a ‘surgery’ in The Chislet Centre, St Mary the Virgin Church, Chislet, on Saturday 28 May, 2 - 4pm. This is an opportunity for Brandon to introduce himself to residents (and Parish Councillors) and explain his role in the community.

It also gives residents the opportunity to highlight their concerns and the main issues we are dealing with in Chislet parish.

As this is the first event of its kind in Chislet, we do hope as many residents as possible will come along to meet Brandon and make this an enjoyable and productive event for the benefit of our community. 

Everyone welcome.
