Sum­mer scheme for ju­nior war­dens

Bangor Mail - - London Beat -

SIX­TEEN young peo­ple from Pwll­heli and Ban­gor have been tak­ing part in a sum­mer scheme run by the largest hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tion in north Wales, Cartrefi Cy­munedol Gwynedd (CCG) to help im­prove their com­mu­ni­ties.

The Ju­nior War­dens scheme gave chil­dren the op­por­tu­nity to work along­side CCG’s Com­mu­nity Hous­ing Of­fi­cers over the sum­mer to teach them about the im­por­tant work they do in their com­mu­ni­ties to make them safe and pleas­ant places to live.

The scheme, run­ning since 2010, has seen more than 140 chil­dren par­tic­i­pat­ing from ar­eas across the county.

Sarah Schofield, Di­rec­tor of Cus­tomers and Com­mu­ni­ties at CCG, said: “Our ju­nior war­den scheme gives chil­dren a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to learn more about their com­mu­ni­ties and the jobs they might like to do when they leave school.

“The aim of the scheme is to give the Ju­nior War­dens as many dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ences as pos­si­ble and in­spire them to think about their com­mu­ni­ties.
