Knife Awareness Session 4th May 2019
You can't help but notice the media coverage regarding increasing
knife crime on our streets.
With this in mind YGK together with West Midlands and West Mercia
Police are putting on a Knife Awareness Session, designed to
give help, support and reassurance to both children and parents
of our community.
Note this is not just limited to our club members but anyone
who wishes to help our community become a safer place.
This is so important to our children's future, so let's make
sure we protect the things we value most.
4th May 15.00pm - 15.30pm, Birchen Coppice School, Woodbury
