Firecracker 2013

Firecracker Nov 2013

Firecracker is a sparkling success for youngsters 

Young people from Gainsborough enjoyed a series of cracking workshops in the run up to Bonfire Night.

The Firecracker initiative, now in its fourth year, was held at the Park Springs Community Centre and aims to tackle the issues of increased crime and anti-social behaviour during this period by engaging with young people, getting them off the streets and involved in fun activities in a safe environment.

With the help of volunteers, Firecracker offered youngsters the chance to participate in a range of workshop activities each week such as spray painting, nail art, cooking and bird box making. Firecracker was held every Friday evening for five weeks, from 4 October to 1 November, with up to 40 young people aged between 11 and 16 attending each session.

Lucy Picksley, Resident Involvement Officer, said: "The success of Firecracker has been fantastic and it is testament to those involved that we have once again been able to offer this series of events for free. The initiative aims to benefit the whole community by providing a positive outlet for local young people and helping to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.”

Firecracker was run in conjunction with #you:th, as well as supporting partners West Lindsey District Council, Lincolnshire County Council, Positive Futures, Image Skool, Hope Church, Hill Holt Wood, Lincolnshire Police and Fire Services, and Galatia.

Galatia’s Customer and Community Officer, Kathryn Murdoch, said: “We’ve thoroughly enjoyed being involved with Firecracker this year and engaging with youngsters in the local community. This project has also been a great opportunity for us to build on our relationship with Park Springs Community Centre and provide some new fun activities for the young people that use this facility.”
