Weymouth School Children Make Community Safety Video

Safety Video School

9:11am 24th February 2014

Dorset Police and Crime commissioner, Martyn Underhill, has attended the film premiere of a community safety video made by schools in Weymouth.

The film was part of their project 'Safe For Us' which aims to raise awareness of community concerns.

The film explores ideas about what it means to be safe, and what makes people feel unsafe.

Mr Underhill told Wessex FM:

'I am proud to be involved in such a wonderful community project and I thank the pupils involved for all their hard work. It is important we work together with community safety issues.'

Headteacher of St Nicholas and St Laurence Primary School, Helen Williams said: “I would really like to say a big thank you to the pupils involved, and to Jo Neale, one of our teaching staff and her husband Ian. They spent most of the weekend editing the film. Without everyone’s commitment this quite incredible project would not have been possible.'

The schools involved were St Nicholas and St Laurence Primary School, Scallywags Nursery, Wyvern Academy, Wey Valley school and the Horticultural Society in Weymouth.

Cameras used to make the film were funded by the police and crime commissioner.
