For their second day, the team on Wokingham LPA took on a day of rural crime prevention action in the form of security marking with Thames Valley Rural Crime Partners, Datatag.
The team set up at Wheatlands Farm in Finchampstead and throughout the day fitted two farm vehicles with the Datatag security kit and 23 saddles marked in total using the saddles security system supplied by Datatag and an engraving tool.
Nicola Greenward, who is a member of the Rural Crime Action Group and was on site throughout the day, said she was pleased with the turnout and some people had driven over specifically to get their tack marked.
There was lots of interest expressed at the event, in particular for another event to be held in conjunction with a pony or riding club where horseboxes and trailer could also be security marked.
If you’re part of a pony or riding club and would like to hold an event of your own, get in touch with your local neighbourhood team by calling 101 or email them via the website.
