The first of three summer events, giving young people the chance to take part in a range of activities as well as seeing the police, council and other agencies in a different light, is taking place in Melton tomorrow (Friday, July 24).
Melton Police, Melton Borough Council and the youth offending service are putting on the events entitled #Breaking Boundaries. All of the events are free of charge.
Pc Chris Perry, dedicated neighbourhood officer for Melton town south, said: “These events offer youngsters a chance to come and spend the day with the police and other agencies and see us in a different light.
“During the day we will have various activities for the kids to do, including football, kwik cricket, rounders and arts and crafts and there will be a smoothie bike and Zumba. Sandwiches, crisps, drinks and fresh fruit will be provided at lunch time.”
Parent/carer consent forms need to be signed if children want to participate. These are available from the Sure Start centres and Melton Police Station and they will also be available on the day.
Under 12s must be accompanied by an appropriate adult (aged 18 plus).
