A HOST of summer activities have been arranged for kids in Caernarfon, Llanberis and Penygroes in a bid to tackle boredom and anti-social behaviour.

The summer project, being run by the Caernarfon Safer Neighbourhood Team, is now underway with activity sessions being run throughout the summer holidays.

Activities for youngsters include zorbing, sports and games.

According to the North Wales Police there has been an increase in anti-social behaviour in Caernarfon and surrounding areas recently, with groups of young people complaining of boredom.

This has led them to congregate around shops and businesses, where there were being disruptive and causing general anti-social behaviour.

However, PCSO Siwan Humphreys, started to work in partnership with different sporting clubs and organisations to arrange activities and the free sessions are open to all children between the ages of 8-16.

PCSO Humphreys said: “Caernarfon is considered to be a deprived town and Llanberis and Penygroes are rural villages where the children and youths feel they have nothing to do.

"This project will instil the community with confidence that the organisation is listening to their concerns. By engaging with young people positively it will build a stronger relationship between the Safer Neighbourhood Team and the community."

The Crimebeat project supports young people who want to make a difference in their communities.

Crimebeat gives young people a chance to develop projects that aim to cut local crime, reduce anti-social behaviour, provide support to victims of crime, stimulate an interest in voluntary work, improve school attendance and behaviour and improve the quality of life in the community.
