Hydburn & Ribble Valley cadets link up with commissioner

HYNDBURN and Ribble Valley’s young cadets gained a new member when Lancashire’s Police and Crime Commissioner dropped by to see them in action at a community event.

The young Volunteer Police Cadets – who are all between 13 and 18 – spent last Saturday (August 9) helping out at Clitheroe Food Festival, where they welcomed the public to the event, handed out guides and assisted with directions.

Clive Grunshaw said: “It’s always a pleasure to meet up with Lancashire’s Volunteer Police Cadets and see first-hand the work they are doing.

“The cadets were excellent ambassadors for both their local area and Lancashire Constabulary during the festival and the roles they are playing within communities across Lancashire cannot be underestimated.

“Volunteer Police Cadet schemes county-wide have my continued support, and I know from the passion and enthusiasm displayed by all the young people involved in the schemes that they are gaining real benefit from the experience.

“I hope hearing about the work our current cadets are doing will inspire more young people to join their local scheme and become a Volunteer Police Cadet.”
