Havering Council is encouraging residents to make use of its safety pop-up shop in the Mercury Mall this month.

The shop, located outside Santa’s Grotto is open from 11.30am to 2.30pm until Friday December 22 – although it is closed this weekend.

It has been designed in partnership with the police, London Fire Bridge, Safer Transport Team, Havering Mind, Diabetes UK, Westminster Drug Projects, Neighbourhood Watch and Victim Support.

The shop which saw residents flood in during its opening on Monday, aims to provide face-to-face safety advice from different partners for all residents.

Councillor Osman Dervish, cabinet member for environment, said: “Christmas is a magical period but also comes with greater safety risks and it’s our duty to keep residents safe.

“During this period, as the evenings get darker, it’s important residents know how to keep themselves safe when out and about, but also at home and online. This is why this pop-up shop is so important.”
