Police Community Support Officers from Ystradgynlais Station have recently been involved
with pupils from Year 5 at Ysgol Bro Tawe, Ystradgynlais working on ‘The Night Out Young Promoters Scheme.’
This involved working with the Young promoters taking them through the process of organising a professional performance for their community, funded by the Night Out community touring scheme. Over a series of six weekly sessions the children set ticket prices and start times, design posters and fliers, invite local VIPs and are responsible for marketing and promoting the event.
Sessions are facilitated by Christine with the help of local Police Community Support Officers, giving the children an opportunity to get to know their local officers which helps builds trust and confidence and impacts on anti-social behaviour. The children were also subject to a visit from PC Flynn 106 and PC Thomas 699 who are Firearms Officers and also PC 942 Llewellyn from the Dog Section along with his dogs Rula and Monty.
The performance took place on the 5th July and Circo Rum BaBa, a group of three talented acteresses took part in the show called ‘The Crow House’. The event was very successful and enjoyed by parents, children, and the VIP guests which included County Cllr Mrs S McNicholas, Gaynor from Tesco in Ystradgynlais who sponsored the event and the Superintendent for Powys Mr Jon Cummins.
Ystradgynlais Neighbourhood Policing Team would like to thank Tesco, Ystradgynlais for sponsoring the event and also Nigel from TLT who also provided soft drinks, cakes and crisps for the children.
