Fed up with nothing to do and the complaints against them about anti-social behaviour and criminal damage, green fingered young people in Evercreech have teamed up with Somerset’s Rural Youth Project, the police, Mendip District Council and Evercreech Parish Councils.The group is working on various activities during the school holidays to keep youngsters occupied and brighten up their area, such as improving Evercreech’s Millennium Garden after it was recently damaged by vandals.
Other activities include sports sessions, a trip to Burnham-on-Sea and informal chats with Rural Youth Project workers about substance misuse. Project worker Andy Gilbert, said: ‘It is always good to see youngsters, who in the past have received complaints, working closely with the police as well as other community groups.’
