YOUNGSTERS who volunteered their free time to give back to the community have been praised by police.

Officers from Cheshire Police came across youths from the RAF Air Cadets yesterday, Saturday, at Christ Church in Padgate.

They were spotted cleaning and tidying the church grounds, including graves of Commonwealth service personnel who died during wars.

Police say that while they often have to deal with youth anti-social behaviour, there are many exceptional youngsters of whom people should be very proud.

Warrington Guardian:

The force’s Warrington Police team said: “We often receive calls regarding young people being involved in anti-social behaviour within communities.

“So, we would like to show you there are also young people out there who are not involved in ASB and make a positive contribution to our town.

“Pictured are a group of cadets from 1330 Warrington Squadron RAF Air Cadets, who on Saturday attended Christ Church in Padgate to help with cleaning and tidying of the Commonwealth war graves of fallen service personnel, and general maintenance of the church grounds.

“It is fantastic to see the cadets giving up their free time, working extremely hard in the warm weather to make a big difference to the local community.”
