ALMOST 2,000 youngsters from across Caerphilly county have signed up to become junior community safety wardens.

Since the launch of the scheme last February, 1,940 children have learned about the role community safety wardens play in their communities.

They patrol the streets and tackle anti social behaviour, littering, graffiti, public drinking, noisy neighbours, dog fouling and fly tipping.

Now the youngsters have pledged to respect themselves, others and the environment.

Cllr David Poole, Caerphilly council’s cabinet member for community and leisure services said the adult wardens play a “pivotal” role in keeping communities safe and act as “shining examples” to their junior counterparts.

“I’m pleased that this scheme has been so popular with children in the county borough, and we’re confident this partnership will help instil the right values to ensure this young generation grow up to care for each other and their surroundings,” he said.
