Cycling fans can get their bikes security marked for free, thanks to Nailsea Neighbourhood Watch.
It has donated money to the Nailsea neighbourhood beat team and officers will be at Millennium Park, off Brockway, on Friday to carry out security marking.
Sergeant Mark Raby said: “I would like to thank Nailsea Neighbourhood Watch for its donation towards cycling security in Nailsea.
“This gives a number of people the chance to security mark their bikes for free.
“Bike Register is a national company we have been working with for a few years now and have had some success in returning recovered stolen pedal bikes to their rightful owners and offenders are less likely to take a bike they see is registered.”
Police officers are at Millennium Park every Friday from 7-9pm throughout the summer.
This week teenagers can enjoy a demonstration from Nailsea Shidokai Judo Club.
Youngsters can also pick up reward cards or earn stamps from the police beat team.
Officers launched the reward scheme last month and participants can earn stamps by carrying out jobs in the community, with the chance of winning vouchers at the end of the summer.
