An Ipswich youngster’s poster aimed to deter anti-social behaviour is to be displayed in East of England Co-Ops across the region.
The competition was held among Year 7 pupils at St Alban’s Catholic High School in Ipswich following a series of workshops led by Scott Walker, the East of England Co-op’s anti-social behaviour support officer.
Winner Jasmine Young will now see her poster displayed at Co-0p stores across the region. She also won an Xbox One games console. In second place was Tom Barker and in third was Louix Wasik-Murray.
Mr Walker said; “The poster we have chosen is bold and clear and I hope the strong messages will resonate with young people visiting our stores.
“Our employees and customers have the right to work and shop in a safe, friendly environment, but the impact can be felt far beyond the walls of our stores.
“Working closely with the students at St Alban’s, I am confident that, by tackling anti-social behaviour together, we can all enjoy a community that becomes a safer and friendlier place to live.”
Melody Bradley, student support manager at St Alban’s Catholic School, said: “We were delighted that Scott took the time to come and talk to our youngest pupils about the far reaching consequences of anti-social behaviour and the impact this has not only on the school, but on the wider community.
