Ovenden Junior Wardens meet The SCG Partnership 

The newly formed Junior Wardens at Dean Field Community Primary School had the opportunity to meet the Safer Cleaner Greener Partnership on Wednesday 13 October 2021

A Q&A session was held with SCG partners including the CMBC Recycling Team, West Yorkshire Police, Together Housing, Ward Councillors and The North Halifax Partnership who spoke to the Junior Wardens  to give them an insight of their day to day job roles and discussed how the Junior Wardens can work in partnership with them and be involved in small scale activities throughout the year to help make a difference to their local community.

Karen Scanlon said 

“The Junior warden scheme is a team of children and young people who are dedicated to helping clean their environment and assist in helping to improve their community’s overall quality of life.”

“As a team we will work to identify environmental and safety problems within our area and report them. Encourage friends, family and our community to look after the environment and the safety of others and be proud of where we live and help make our neighbourhood a better place to live.”

The Junior Warden scheme has been set up again at Dean Field Community Primary School to look at tackling issues within the Ovenden community so be sure to keep an eye out for any future work being done.
