A community playground at a school was blighted by ASB issues culminating in an arson attack where the school bike shed and picnic tables were burnt down. The local Red Lion Lane Neighbourhood Watch, in conjunction with the school, brought community groups together to show how valuable the space was and to restore pride in the space.

The local school, local police, Neighbourhood Watch Association Lead, bike marking, conservation, fitness and wildlife groups all connected and used the event to bring their good work to the community and increase memberships and participation. Overall 30+ children's faces were painted and 16 bikes were marked in the 2-hour event.

How did you overcome any challenges?
We worked with our Neighbourhood Watch Association Lead to ensure the local police arrived on the day.

How did you cover any costs?
None were incurred. We covered limited printing costs ourselves for flyers and the face paints belonged to the school.
