Police join park community fun
by Tom Martin

A MINI Olympics is taking place in Netherton as part of a community group's mission to reduce anti-social behaviour in the area.

The summer-long event, which is taking place in Killen Green Park, is being organised by the local L30 Million Partnership.

The group recently staged a consultation when it was found that a lot of residents are concerned about anti-social behaviour, drug and alcohol issues and also education.

The L30 Million Partnership is made up of locals who live or work in the area and help put on events for youngsters.

The idea of the mini Olympics is to help keep children off the street and also provide activities for families who may not be able to afford to go on holidays or trips.

The event also had the aim of “getting people into the local park” to meet and make friends in the community.

It has been supported by Merseyside Police, with some officers arriving by horses much to the delight of children who got to meet the animals.

For more information on what's going on in the park over the next couple of weeks, please call: 0151 934 3800.
