Police praised for summer fun

Have your say

YOUNGSTERS in Grassmoor enjoyed free go-karting, football and skateboarding sessions over the summer holidays - thanks to Derbyshire Police.

The force organised the fitness sessions for around 40 children to keep them busy during their six-week break from school.

PCSO James Land, who organised the activities, said: “The sessions have been a great success and have helped us to build up relationships with the youngsters as well as providing them with something to do during the holidays.”

The sessions were funded by Rykneld Homes, Derbyshire Police and Grassmoor Parish Council.
