The scheme is designed to encourage children to foster greater respect and pride in their local neighbourhood and promote a positive image of children in the community. Working alongside the council's Neighbourhood Wardens and other council services to help improve their local area.
This has proved successful in educating the junior wardens about their environment and the value of making their community a nicer place to live.
What sort of things do they do?
Regular events are organised during school holidays where the junior wardens work alongside the council’s official neighbourhood wardens and other council services to help improve their local area. These community events range from litter picks, clean ups, painting projects, visits to fire stations, graffiti removal, recycling and environmental projects, garden projects, fundraising for local charities, annual sports day, meeting the police at Netley training college and much, much more.
There are no joining or attendance fees. Recruiting takes place throughout the year and a simple application form is required to register.
