Children Help To Clean Up Park

Wath Skate Park Wath Skate Park


SCHOOLCHILDREN gave up time in their Easter holidays and helped tidy up a skate park after complaining to police officers about litter and smashed glass.

The children - aged between ten and 12 and from a number of primary schools in the area - said they couldn't enjoy riding their scooters and skateboards in Wath and agreed to use some of their Easter holidays to clear the mess.

They joined PCSOs Paul Gray and Teresa Nicolaou, and helpers Will Padfield and Alison Clegg and collected ten large bin liners which also included a broken supermarket trolley and cardboard boxes.

"With the light nights and summertime coming, it's very important to us and the community to keep young people occupied after school, on weekends and throughout the school holidays," said PCSO Gray.

"Wath Skate Park is an ideal place for this, it's just unfortunate that some people don't treat these areas with the respect they should, which spoils it for others who would like to enjoy them."
