Stamping Out Boredom

Throughout August, I have been dropping by on a range of Summer programmes for youngsters across the borough. It is good to see a lot of creative thinking going in to this kind of Summer holiday project.

Last week, I joined Elmbridge Housing Trust, Surrey Youth Services, Elmbridge Council and Surrey Police to celebrate the Stamp out Bordeom project. It keeps youngsters busy - and out of mischief - by getting them involved in a whole range of activities, including team-building exercises, graffiti art, football training, giving interviews on Brooklands Radio, and putting together a video explaining the scheme itself. The project has proved a real success, popular amongst both children and parents.

I joined them on their final day - pictured below - and took part in a team-building game, watched the film they recorded of the scheme, and handed out the awards to those who took part. It was a lot of fun, and a great credit to all the youngsters and local agencies involved.
