Youngsters in a Moorlands town have been praised by the police and community leaders.
The praise was handed out by a representative of Staffordshire Police who recently attended a virtual meeting of Cheadle Town Council.
He said: “With lockdown easing, Cheadle youngsters have been good across the board.
“I can’t talk about the Cheadle Park fire incident, as investigations are ongoing; and we have been having problems at the Bowling Green, but there are a lot more people doing more good than bad.
“I had a walk around with councillors Ian Plant and Kate Martin, and we will talk more after the elections. We want to get the youngsters to work with us and you to have a better future.”
He added: “There have been a few minor offences, but we will be bringing them to book.”
Councillor Alan Thomas said in response: “I just want to endorse what you have said.
“Behind my house is the rec ground, and there was a big pile of rubbish.
“There was a group of lads who I asked if they wanted to do some litter picking.
“There was a gang of seven or eight of them and they helped; in minutes it was gone and tidy.
“We need to give credit where credit is due.”
