Youngsters from four Weston primary schools combined to perform a show about crime prevention.
Year five pupils from Milton Park, Bournville, Walliscote and Windwhistle primary schools have been part of the Crimestoppers’ programme What Would You Do? which aims to help children make informed choices and have confidence and resilience around crime.
Almost 350 people watched the show at The Playhouse, in High Street, as kids demonstrated what they have learnt about making communities safer.
Regional manager for Crimestoppers in the West Country, Karen MacDonald, said: “People often know who is committing crime, but for whatever reason they can be reluctant to pass this information on to the police.
“The knowledge these children have gained from this project, in particular how to report crime through Crimestoppers, has reached families in a unique way.”
