Children given alcohol lesson

POLICE community support officers visited pupils at Eastwood Junior School to talk about drugs and alcohol.

PCSOs Derek Kershaw and Chris Cupit spoke to the children about different drugs and different types of alcohol and the effects they have on behaviour.

The officers contacted the school and asked if they could hold the classes, for years four, five and six, as part of their forging links with the community programme.

Teacher Nicola Davis said: "I think they really wanted to get the message across about how drugs and alcohol change the way you behave.

"It was very helpful. I think the children were surprised by some of the effects but I think they learned some interesting facts."
