Caroline backs Auckley, Blaxton, Branton & Finningley Community Alcohol Partnership

Alcolhol_partnership_group_close_up.jpgCaroline Flint has welcomed the launch of the Auckley, Blaxton, Branton and Finningley Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) this week.

The Don Valley MP spoke at the launch of the community initiative.

The partnership was introduced after concerns were raised with police about levels of nuisance behaviour in Auckley, Blaxton, Branton and Finnningley.  A residents' survey revealed that two thirds of respondents were concerned about alcohol related litter, young people under 18 drinking in public and hanging around shops asking people to buy drink for them.

Attending the launch were the CAP Co-ordinator, Inspector Liam Walters, Jennifer Worthington (Auckley Parish Council), Liam Amos (Blakemore Retail) and Chief Inspector Lynne Lancaster, alongside representatives of Doncaster Council, South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service and Expect Youth. The CAP includes a range of partners, such as The Co-op, Hayfield School and The New College. 

Local teenagers Alexia Lovell and Alannah White, who are members of the Doncaster Youth Forum also addressed the meeting, saying more facilities were needed for young people.
