Newbold youngsters’ fun and games with the police

Have your say

Police officers showed their less serious side by hosting a games and disco event for youngsters in a North Derbyshire village.

PCSO Janis Naylor from the Chesterfield North Safer Neighbourhood Team organised the free Gamezone and disco event for Newbold youngsters as a way for them to meet with friends at an organised activity.

The fun occasion also aimed to help reduce and prevent reports of anti-social behaviour.

The children were invited to join in the with the disco and karaoke sessions and to try their hand at computer games on the Wii and PlayStation.

Prizes were awarded to the ‘best signer’, ‘best dancer’ and ‘best game player’.

Some 21 kids showed up at the event, which was held at the Eagle Club during the evening of Thursday, December 18.

The event was organised with funding from Chesterfield Borough Council via the ‘Community Assemblies Community Chest’.
