Kent Police Cadets recently supported a nationwide public cleaning campaign by sprucing up a town centre and cliffs.

Armed with litter-pickers, the volunteers covered Dover town centre and the Western Heights area on June 10.

The team were working in conjunction with the White Cliffs Countryside project to improve their neighbourhood, and plan to return to the same areas this Sunday.

The Police Cadets, who are aged between 13 and 17, get involved with neighbourhood activities and support community policing to learn about responsible citizenship.

The volunteers all have the potential to become police officers with the scheme, which is aimed at enhancing the skills, knowledge and confidence of young people.

Superintendent Jason Wenlock of Kent Police’s Citizens in Policing Team said: ‘This is one of many examples of community-minded young people giving up their own time to improve their neighbourhoods.

“They have worked incredibly hard to create a greener space for people to enjoy.

“I continue to be impressed by the young people within our cadet scheme, which is helping to shape the lives of the volunteers within it.”

The Great British Clean-up is a campaign run by Keep Britain Tidy to create millions of miles worth of cleaner and greener spaces for people to enjoy.
