Get involved with the Community Street Team

We all say “what a lovely community Ash & Ash Vale are” – very true! Would you like to help our wonderful Community?  Ash Parish News asked local resident Pat Scott, to describe the Community Street Team and how it is changing.

Who are the Community Street Team?

For 12 years the Community Street Team have concentrated on engaging with local youngsters between 10 – 16 years to address local anti-social issues.  We have engaged with the youth, listened to them and tried to suggest alternative routes for their lifestyle which would help them to feel more included in our local community.

As a result of Anti Social Behaviour having been downgraded successfully, we are now planning to “morph” into a more Community focussed group with some volunteers still going on “Outings” to continue engaging with our local youth but now some members are also giving greater assistance at local events i.e Village Fete, Lakeside Nature Event, Remembrance Day Parades and Christmas Fantasia.

How much time do volunteers need to give?

Just an hour or so when needed, helping at Community events in Ash and Ash Vale such as the Village Fete in June, the Youth Centre (hopefully opening soon), Lakeside Nature Fun Day, Remembrance Day and Fantasia.
