On Thursday 17th March 2019 Daventry Mayor, Cllr Lynn Jones, attended the Purple4Polio Tea Party hosted by Danetre Rotary Club.

Purple4Polio is an initiative launched by Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland to raise funds and awareness for the efforts to eradicate polio across the world and to promote the global campaign, End Polio Now. When a child receives their life saving polio drops on mass polio immunisation days, in many countries their little finger is painted with a purple dye so it is clear that they have received their life saving vaccine.

The Solomon Theatre Company performed their production of 'Skin Deep' at The Parker E-Act on Tuesday, which was funded by DTC, to pupils from various years. The performances key messages focused on gangs, the consequences of joining one, and knife crime, along with challenging thinking and developing understanding when it comes to extremism and prejudice.

Duncan Timbs, Crew Commander for Daventry Fire Station said, "With increased levels of anti-social behaviour in Northamptonshire, our youth engagement projects are more important than ever. By educating children and young people to the dangers of gangs and violence we are confident that this will act as a deterrent.

The Solomon Theatre Company can portray real issues in a way that young people can understand without being too overwhelming. The knife crime element of the production also sits hand in hand with this year's county schools challenge that we're involved with alongside Northamptonshire Police and DSLV academy."

Deborah Jewell, Chief Officer for Daventry Town Council said, "Our partnership work with Daventry Fire Station's youth engagement is an ongoing project. Anti-social behaviour, to include gang culture and knife crime are serious issues and by utilising alternative methods of education, such as theatre, these strong messages are conveyed to promote positive change and healthy lifestyles." » Less
