PACT (Police and Communities Trust)) and Crimebeat funding events 2016
Youngsters were again able to receive tuition at the bowls club during their Summer holidays. The initiative lasted 6 weeks and was attended by local children. Although the initiative was aimed at the youngsters a few adults also turned up to try their hand. The weather was good for every session and plans are already in place for next year’s event. Many thanks to Peter Hayes at the club for giving up his spare time to offer tuition and also the use of the bowls club’s facilities.
Also during the holidays, a weekly litter pick was arranged around the Parish Church and Cathedral grounds. The youngsters, and again some adults who attended, were very effective and the pick was extended into the park and also along the river path. Special thanks go to Melissa Griffiths (aged 11) and her parents Steve and Elaine who attendedevery pick during the 6 weeks and helped considerablyin keeping the areas as litter-free as possible. Thanks also to Gareth Williams at St Asaph diocese office for all his assistance, Tim Redgrave at Ysgol Esgob Morgan for helping to publicise both initiatives and also Julie from Country Maid café for keeping everybody fed.
In another PACT funded event St Asaph walking group were able to visit Llangollen again for a walk along the canal, which has now become an annual event. Many thanks to Alan Johnson, the walk leader, for organising the walk which was enjoyed by adults and children alike.
And finally, a big thank you for everyone who participated in the events, and also to Dave Evans, the PACT/Crimebeatfund manager who has supported the initiatives. If anyone has any ideas for future initiatives or events please let me know and we can look at submitting requests for funding.
