Local Officers were on hand as crowds of people turned out to support the Rivergate Centre Festive Spectacular event in Irvine this weekend.

There was something on offer for all the family at the event on Saturday (26th November 2016) with Santa’s arrival, local musicians, dance groups and an appearance from X-Factor’s Union J.

Sergeant Jason Peter, of the Irvine Locality Policing Team, attended the event and commented “it was great to be part of the Rivergate Festive Spectacular celebrations this weekend. We worked alongside the event organisers to ensure a safe event for all.

“Hundreds of people came together in the town’s Bridgegate on Saturday to participate in the festivities with the Frozen singalong, local dance groups, singers and entertainment from the West FM Team.

“It was great to see Union J visiting the town ahead of their European Tour which starts next week. All the acts were top class – overall a brilliant event with a great community feel.

“Our Locality Policing Teams are working in communities to engage with local residents and businesses and to tackle issues of local concern. Attending community events like this provide informal opportunities to meet local people and discuss any current concerns.”
