Children from a Burnley school recently unleashed their artistic side to promote safety and good behaviour in their neighbourhoods.
Lynsey Blades and Amber Howorth, from Calico Homes’ Neighbourhood Action Team for Griffin and Barclay, recently joined Participation Works and PCSO Alex Caterall to deliver an assembly at Cherry Fold Primary School, encouraging the children to have fun and keep safe during the holidays, and to consider and respect their neighbours.
The youngsters also took part in a poster competition to create a design that showed what makes both a good and bad neighbourhood.
The winning designs were created by Maisie Simpson in Key Stage 1 and Alfie Jennings in Key Stage 2, with runners-up Adam Jefferson and Logan Gorton.
Gemma Jones, from Calico’s Neighbourhood Action Team for Griffin and Barclay, said: “The assembly was a great success. The kids were really engaged and seemed to take our message on board.
“We had some really fantastic and creative entries to the poster competition – a huge well done to all the winners!”
