CHILDREN are finding their community spirit by taking part in an innovative junior warden scheme.

Pupils at Town Field Primary School in Thorne Road, Doncaster, have met police, fire and council staff as they look to develop a sense of neighbourhood responsibility.

The warden training also aims to promote pride in the areas which the youngsters live.

Children studying in years five and six will visit Doncaster Fire Station for safety advice and also speak to police officers about behaving appropriately in the community.

Other themes covered include litter picking, anti-bullying and self-esteem.

Helena Honeybone, deputy headteacher, said: “The children are learning about the importance of community and keeping it tidy, clean and safe.

“It is a fabulous opportunity for them and we welcome the support of our community safety warden and safer neighbourhood teams.”
