Helensburgh`s Blue Light Disco team were recently announced the winners of the MOD Peoples “Community Involvement” category at a ceremony held at the MOD main building in London. The team were represented by Community Safety Manager Sergeant George Smart and Constable Russell White of the Ministry of Defence Police (MDP).
George, the originator of the initiative, said “The MDP, our partner agencies and dedicated volunteers have strived to make the initiative a great success and it is really nice that the hard work of the team is recognised at the highest level within the MOD”. Russell added “ The Disco regularly attracts 240 young people and is inclusive of the local area. It has broken down barriers and provides a safe environment for our young people to enjoy themselves”
Congratulations also to PCs Ray Bartholomew & Tony Allen from Innsworth who were placed third in the Inclusivity Award.
