Students advised on acceptable behaviour in High Wycombe in new guide
STUDENTS have been given a guide on how to behave in the community and how to live safely in High Wycombe.
Buckinghamshire New University's Students' Union produced its second Community Guide to High Wycombe which includes sexual, drug and personal advice and volunteering opportunities.
The 40 page guide has advice from Wycombe District Council and Thames Valley Police.
Sergeant Darren Mitchell, based in High Wycombe, helped launch the guide, with WDC’s cabinet member for community, cllr Katrina Wood.
It will be available at the Queen Alexandra Road campus, as well as at libraries, council offices and police stations, and has been posted through students’ and residents’ doors close to the centre of High Wycombe.
Sgt Mitchell said: "This is a brilliant way to raise awareness to students of what is acceptable and what is not acceptable in the community, as well as giving them a comprehensive guide to the resources and support available to them in the town.
"This guide is a good way to provide information about not only staying safe but appreciating the effect that some actions can have on neighbours.
"We are happy to reinforce the strong message being sent out by Bucks Students’ Union that not only is anti-social behaviour unacceptable from students but that we are all working together to ensure that students have an enjoyable and safe experience living in High Wycombe."
