Cllr James Pratt recently visited Leighton Academy school with PSCOs Jen & Andrea from Crewe St Barnabas Police and Lindsay Lewis from Crewe Town Council to talk about the recent regeneration of Leighton Brook Park, talk about our local police and to invite students to take part in our competition for the schools to design some new signs for the park.
We had a lovely time and were very impressed – all the children were extremely well behaved. It was also nice to see how enthusiastic all the pupils were about what we have been doing.
Thank you to Leighton Academy for allowing us the time to come and visit and disrupt your busy days!
There were two themes for the sign design competition, the first being anti-littering to encourage users of the park to help keep it clean and tidy, and the second being CCTV, to positively promote the CCTV camera and raise awareness of it to visitors to the park in order to help reduce instances of anti social behaviour.
I’m delighted to be able to share the childrens designs for the park, the winning designs will be made in to permanent signs to be installed at the newly renovated playground at Leighton Brook Park off Frank Webb Avenue.
I also run a local litter picking group for the St Barnabas area – if you are interested in joining the group do sign up for my email newsletter to be kept up to date with details of our next litter pick.
