Summer scheme for junior wardens
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.
