ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR, GRANGE MOORAfter a quiet few months in Grange Moor, reports of young people causing anti-social behaviour have unfortunately started again, in particular targeting the Mobile Library. We will be patrolling in Grange Moor in the evenings in order to hopefully nip this in the bud, and we would appreciate the support of parents in the area. Do you know where your children are in the evenings, who they are with and what they up to? Ensure that your children are not the ones involved in anti-social behaviour. Those of you who are will soon be getting home visits from us.
