A FORUM for Kidderminster retailers to discuss issues of crime and public safety is holding its annual meeting next week.

Members of the Kidderminster Retail Initiative and Safety Programme - KRISP - will gather at Kidderminster College for the meeting, beginning at 3.45pm on Tuesday.

The group is made up of representatives of around 80 businesses in and around Kidderminster town centre, working in partnership with West Mercia Constabulary.

It is also part of the wider, regional organisation, the Midlands Retail Crime Initiative - MRCI.

Anyone interested in Kidderminster's town centre shopping environment and would like to find out more about KRISP is invited to attend the meeting, which will be held in room 205 of the college, in Market Street.
