Drop in session finally on cards for residents living near bail hostel
FED-up residents living near the controversial Felmores bail hostel, which houses convicted paedophiles and dangerous crooks, will finally be given the chance to quiz probation bosses.
Taking place at the Northlands Park Community Centre in Northlands Park, Felmores next Friday <12>, people will be given four hours between 4pm and 8pm to quiz senior officers from the Essex Probation Service, police and representatives from Basildon Council.
It is hoped they will be able to ask questions about how offenders living at the hostel are monitored and the steps taken to protect the public living nearby, as well as pressing key figures about plans to relocate the hostel from its current location.
