The family fun day will commence with a procession from the Sikh Temple to Centre Square at 10.30am. During the procession there will be music and singing of the Sikh Holy Scriptures. The event in Centre Square will start at 12pm and there will be speeches by key community leaders followed by a free lunch (langer) provided by the Sikh Community to all those who attend. Other attractions in the Square include information stalls about education, training and community safety and martial art displays.

Practical Peers

Hardwick in Partnership Ltd would like to provide practical activity sessions, in small groups, for young people who have been identified as being at risk of participating in antisocial behaviour. The sessions would create a pathway that encourages the young person to participate and gain practical skills, producing an output that will give them a sense of achievement and pride in their work.

Key elements in the programme are of a practical nature to include mechanics, in a fully outfitted garage setting and joinery skills in our fully equipped joinery resource. The Partnership plan to provide 20 sessions with a fully qualified project worker that will encompass both a practical output and engender safe working practices that will add to the skills base of each participant. The Partnership requested funding for £3,000 for 20 sessions at a cost of £150 per session. 

This project supports the PCCs priorities of tackling re-offending, working together to make Cleveland safer and securing the future of our communities.
