Junior Wardens is a project that Dunstable Town Council runs in partnership with St. Augustines Academy. Junior Wardens runs every Wednesday during term time from 3:30 pm to 4:45 pm. The aim of the project is to promote active citizenship, pride of place and personal safety. Each term Junior Wardens looks at a specific theme as well as taking part in a community project each term. So far the group has looked at litter, road safety and personal safety.
They have taken part in a national road safety walk called BRAKE where the Junior Wardens was chosen as a Star School. Further information can be found here: http://www.brake.org.uk/cat-fundraise/6-kids-a-schools/1635-brake-s-giant-walk-2016-what-happened
The group has also participated in a community litter pick and have made Christmas cards for local residents. Currently the group are looking at Respecting, Accepting and Celebrating Differences. They have also had a visit from OSCAR road safety car to promote the importance of not distracting the driver.
Dunstable Town Council are currently looking for volunteers to help run the project. If you can spare 2.5 hours per week to help assist with Junior Wardens and would like to discuss this further, please contact Senior Community and Young Peoples Officer, Gill 01582 891434 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
