Engaging young people in Neston to support a reduction in anti-social behaviour

20 October 2016

Cheshire West and Chester Council Youth Service has deployed two teams in Neston, on Monday and Friday evenings, to support and engage young people living in the community.

The work is in response to recent serious, unrelated incidents in the local area and increased anti-social behaviour in the Stanney Fields park area.

Councillor Nicole Meardon, Cabinet Member for Children and Families, said: “I understand that these recent incidents may cause concern. I would like to reassure all residents that we are working hard to support young people to reduce any potential involvement in anti-social behaviour.

“Our youth workers are actively working with people on the streets to motivate and encourage them to take part in local projects involving graffiti art and sports activities.They are also encouraging young people to join the Neston youth club held on a Wednesday evening. 

“Our youth engagement officer from the Anti-Social Behaviour Unit is also working with Neston High School to support the project.” Ian Stead, Western Partnerships Inspector, Cheshire Constabulary, said: “We have increased the number of patrols in the area and are working closely with the Council and local partners to ensure quick action is taken to keep our communities safe.” 

Notes to editors: Neston Youth Club is held on a Wednesday evening. For more information about the club please contact gareth@nestoncyc.co.uk
