Last Friday a group of year 9 pupils – all boys- attended the fortnightly coffee morning held for members of the local community at Tonypandy Library.  The main aim of the visit was to find out what the group knew about distraction thefts and whether they had been personally affected by this crime.  The pupils are currently working on a project looking at this local issue as a number of thefts have occurred in nearby supermarkets whilst shoppers have been distracted and their purses and valuables taken from their bags. 

During the visit the pupils conducted a survey and found that several members of the group had experienced this crime first hand.  The pupils explained that they are working on creating a DVD to promote awareness of this problem within the locality and all those at the coffee morning felt that this was a positive idea and would support the initiative.

The pupils ended their visit with a light-hearted quiz which was a fun way to end the morning and helped to build a great relationship between the different generations who were present.  PSCO Roberts said ” I have received great feedback from all members of the group, they thoroughly enjoyed the company of the boys and  were in complete awe of their politeness and willingness to get involved in conversations. Well Done Boys”

The members of the coffee morning are looking forward to another visit from the pupils once they have completed their DVD.  All the pupils involved would like to extend their thanks to the group for allowing them to attend.

Group included Jehd Chapman, Jessie George, Jessie Button Tomas Boundford, Brandon Raymond, Cori Jones, Dylan Fletcher Hewitt, Callum Thomas, Stefan Jeczalik and Jarrad Sweet
