A SMALL army of dedicated youngsters have been shortlisted for a prestigious award because of their community work on a Weston estate.

The Junior Community Wardens, a group of children aged eight to 13 from the Bournville, are in the running for an accolade in the National Housing Federation’s What We Are Proud Of Awards.

They were nominated and shortlisted in the best contribution to the local community category and will find out at a special ceremony on June 29 if they have picked up the coveted award.

The group, run by NSHousing, was set up in July 2009 and work to improve their area by getting involved with local campaigns and organisations, with a strong focus on environmental issues.

Recently, the youngsters have helped the Coronation Residents’ Association campaign for road safety and have taken part in planting in Jubilee Park with the Avon Wildlife Trust.
