On behalf of the Nether Poppleton Millennium Green Trust, I should like to confirm our appreciation for the work being undertaken by the Community Payback team managed on-site by your colleague.
May I on behalf of the Vicar and my fellow Churchwarden thank you and all the team for your considerable help during this past year. The churchyard has never looked so tidy and has been much admired.
Residents in Beal were delighted when the Community Payback team in Selby offered a helping hand to deliver a long awaited recreational area for the local community - the ‘Jubilee Garden’.
A Community Payback scheme in a Selby village has seen a £3,000 fence put up to help cut down on antisocial behaviour.
York, and its surrounding villages, has its fair share of beautiful and historic churches, most surrounded by vast burial grounds.
Offenders, carrying out Community Payback, came to the rescue of scores of elderly residents who were left housebound after the big freeze descended on the county during December 2010.
Just like most UK cities, York suffers from more than its fair share of graffiti. While providing some momentary fun for those responsible, it blights neighbourhoods, contributes to increased levels of crime and disorder, and costs the City of York Council thousands of pounds each year to remove it.
Offenders in York teamed up with the City of York Council in July to pick up thousands of discharged cigarette butts from York's historic streets.
