Pupils go potty to beat yobs

GREEN-fingered pupils spent a day gardening in a Solihull school in a bid to help understand anti-social behaviour.

The youngsters tried their hands at being Alan Titchmarsh and Charlie Dimmock for the day as a team led by Solihull Community Housing (SCH), helped them to pot plants for a special ‘Project Day.’ The day was set up to help pupils understand issues around anti-social behaviour, such as vandalism and graffiti, along with how to care for their local environment.

Staff from SCH’s anti-social behaviour and anti-graffiti teams, the police, and students from Grace Academy and Windy Arbor also used demonstrations to highlight the impact of anti-social behaviour.

Councillor Ian Courts, cabinet member for economic development and regeneration, said: “This is a very good initiative to help young people in the borough become involved in local school projects that will help develop their pride and respect for the local environment - as well as gain awareness of the issues surrounding anti-social behaviour.”
