Young people in Patchway cleaned up as part of a Dream Scheme project.
A group of young people spent time cleaning cars at Coniston Community Centre in the event run by Southern Brooks Community Partnership and supported by neighbourhood police.
Fourteen vehicles were cleaned on Thursday April 15 2010 – including the marked Police Community Support Officers’ vehicle (pictured).
PCSOs Jason Green and Paul Baxter got involved on the day.
Patchway Neighbourhood PC Adam O’Loughlin said: “The scheme is a great way for young people to show the positive contribution they can make to their community.
“We’re pleased to support the scheme which also gives us an opportunity to build positive relations between the neighbourhood team and our local young people.”
Liz Brennan of Southern Brooks Community Partnership said: “A big, big ‘well done’ to all our Dreamschemers. We would like to thank Four Towns and Vale Link Community Transport for donating vehicles, time and money, Patchway Town Council for lending us their hose and Coniston Community Centre for the use of their water and facilities. This really was a community project!”
The Dream Scheme project encourages young people to get involved in projects to make life better for their community by offering rewards like discounted access to local leisure facilities, funded by donations from local business.
