Community Payback team clean up parts of Fenland town to help prevent anti-social behaviour
GRAFFITI in a Fenland town was cleaned up as part of a drive to discourage anti-social behaviour.
Members of the Community Payback team spent seven hours in March tackling areas which have been plagued by litter and offensive tagging. PCSO Claire Stalworthy organised the event which focused on sites in Robingoodfellow’s Lane and Hundred Lane as well as other hot-spots which have been causing problems for local residents.
She said: “I could see as the day went on that the Payback team were benefiting from the tasks.
“It helps them realise how things like graffiti really do affect the community.”
Litter picking and other activities were completed as part of the drive to make areas look nicer and more welcoming.
