In an emergency always call 999

Half-term karaoke and disco proved to be popular with Poolsbrook youngsters

Posted on 4th November 2016

A free karaoke and disco put on for youngsters during the school half-term holiday in Poolsbrook has proved to be popular.

Around 25 youngsters attended the event at Poolsbrook Miners Welfare on Thursday, October 27.

It was set up by the Middlecroft and Poolsbrook Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team with the aim of improving links between young people and the police, to reduce the potential for anti-social behaviour and provide youngsters with a safe place to meet with friends, dance and listen to music.

PCSO Janis Naylor said: “It has been the first time we’ve organised an event like this in Poolsbrook and we were really pleased that so many local young people came along. As well as the disco and karaoke, the youngsters also took part in games and singing and dancing competitions.

“We will be looking into organising potential similar events in the future, and hope they will be just as popular.”

To contact the Middlecroft and Poolsbrook Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team call 101, the non emergency number for Derbyshire police, or email staveley.neighbourhoods@derbyshire.pnn.police.uk.
