Partnership Sgt. Dave Harrison said: "The summer holidays are a great time for young people to get involved in some different activities, and take advantage of everything the Extreme Wheels Roadshows have to offer.

“We’ve set them up to take place across the Bolsover, North East Derbyshire and Chesterfield areas during a time when youngsters are off school and feel they don’t have much to do.”

Sgt. Harrison added: “It can also be a time when we get more reports of nuisance behaviour, and we hope this will help by offering an alternative place for young people gather.”

All the sessions are free. The minimum age to take part is seven years old, and all youngsters under the age of nine must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. A parental consent form must be filled in and this can be done on the day.
