Clean up by youth project

YOUNG people will be helping to clean up their area of litter during a campaign next week.

Youth forum members from the West A19 Youth Project have volunteered to help Durham County Council’s civic pride team and neighbourhood wardens tidy up rubbish in an area around Shotton Colliery Community Centre next Wednesday.

Pauline Walker, Durham County Council senior civic pride officer, said: “The young people from the A19 Youth Project are keen to help make their area a nicer, cleaner place to live and it’s fantastic that they are so motivated and enthusiastic.”

An environmental session will also be held to inform the young people about environmental enforcement on Monday, May 21.
