    The top 10 crime prevention tips at Hull Fair

    Before setting off
    • Leave any valuables such as iPods, jewellery and credit cards at home; only take what you absolutely need and remember to lock all windows and doors before you set off.

    Getting to Hull Fair
    • Drinking alcohol on buses is prohibited. Anyone caught trying to carry alcohol on to the buses will be refused entry and anyone caught drinking alcohol on a bus will be asked to get off.
    • While on the buses respect the rights of other passengers by keeping noise down to a minimum and not smoking.
    • If you drive to the fair park in a well lit busy area and make a note of where you are parked.
    • When you leave your car ensure nothing is on view, remove all valuables and wipe off Sat Nav sucker marks from the windscreen.

    While at Hull Fair
    • Keep your money and mobile phones in a safe and secure place. Consider wearing clothes that have pockets with zips or using a money belt to keep your property safe.
    • If you see anything suspicious report it immediately to a Police Officer, Police Community Support Officer, Stewards or Fairground Staff.
    • If attending the fair with small children consider using a wrist link or harness to prevent them wandering off. Also give children guardian contact details to carry, so any children who become lost can be reunited with their guardians quickly.
    • Make sure you are familiar with the location of the Police, First Aid and Lost/Found Children Offices.

    Getting home from Hull Fair
    • Have a pre-arranged meeting place to go to in the event of you becoming separated from friends/relatives.
    • If travelling by bus, ensure you keep enough money aside for your bus fare home. Be sure where, and which bus, you need to get on in advance.
