A weekly disco and gaming session for youngsters at Littlemoor is set to return for the half term holidays following its summer time success.

Officers from the Newbold and Dunston area Safer Neighbourhood policing teams set up the disco and Gamezone activities following funding from local county councillors.

Around 40 youngsters came along to the event each week during the school holidays, from Thursday, July 26, to Thursday, August 30.

The sessions were held as part of a number of activities for local youngsters, including sporting, dancing and cheerleading, with the aim of help reduce and prevent reports of anti-social behaviour.

PCSO Janis Naylor of the Dunston, Moor and St Helen’s Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Gamezone and the weekly disco has shown to be really popular with local youngsters, so we’ve set up another event to take place during half term and hope to be able to run more sessions in the future.

“We would like to thank local county councillors and The Eagle Club for their support in the project.”

The next Gamezone and disco has been organised for Thursday, November 1, between 7.30pm and 9pm at the Eagle Club on St Johns Road.
