Police Fun Day in Boosbeck

Around 300 children from East Cleveland villages will have an exciting end to the school year, with a Fun Day organised by their local Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Paul Payne. The youngsters, who attend Lockwood Primary School in Boosbeck and Lingdale Primary School, will see Police Officers from Air Support, Motorcycle and Mounted Section and Neighbourhood Policing Teams with their high tech CCTV van joined by colleagues from the Fire Brigade, Anti Social Behaviour Team, Safe in Tees Valley and Zenith Leisure with their Climbing Wall for a fun packed and interesting day. PCSO Paul Payne organised the day as a “Thank You” to the schools for the support they have given  their Neighbourhood Policing Teams over the years. The event, which runs from 10am to 3pm on Friday (15th July), will be held at Lockwood Primary School where Paul recently launched a Mini PCSO scheme. Lockwood Head teacher Grant Hopkins has kindly opened up his school for the day and offered the use of the school minibus so children from  Lingdale can get to the Fun Day. Paul will also be launching another new project ‘Cop  Cards’, Similar to   the Top Trumps game on the day, where each card holds a caricature picture of all the East Cleveland officers along with a ‘Tag Line’ which children must learn in order to receive a card and WHICH have been drawn by Prior Pursglove student Glenn Todd and is aimed at getting local school children from the whole of East Cleveland more involved with their Neighbourhood Policing Teams. PCSO Payne said: “The Fun Day will make an enjoyable and memorable end of term treat for the children and it is the Neighbourhood Policing Team’s way of thanking both schools for their ongoing support and help over the years. I’m very grateful to my police, Fire Service and other agency  colleagues for their input, and I look forward to continuing to work with both schools in the future.”
