OFFICERS from a local policing team will be getting their hands dirty as they help residents to improve the local area.

Members of the Cobholm and Southtown Safer Neighbourhood Team will take part in a community planting day at Manor Close Community Centre, Gorleston on Thursday, February 18.

Residents from the day services centre on Suffolk Road will join forces with members of a local youth club to create a new garden.

Funds from the Great Yarmouth Safer Communities Delivery Partnership were provided by the Neighbourhood Management Board for Cobholm, Southtown and Halfway House.

The board is made up of local residents, working in partnership with the police and local council to deal with neighbourhood issues and improve the area.

Police community support officer Jenna Harding, said: “The aim of this project is to bring the community together in a project they can be proud of.”

Neighbourhood development officer for the programme Erika Chalkley said: “This is a great example of how local priorities can be addressed by local people working together with different agencies.

“We are actively working to involve as many local people as possible in the development of this and other projects in the Halfway House area, and we are always keen to hear of new ideas, suggestions and priorities from residents.”
