Antisocial behaviour in Nailsea has dropped 'significantly' thanks to a police reward scheme.
Police officers in Nailsea launched the Nailsea Reward Scheme to try to prevent antisocial behaviour in the town over the summer.
Reward cards were handed out to youngsters who could earn points by helping the community and taking part in activities.
The cards were entered into a prize draw at the end of the summer and three winners were presented with vouchers.
Officers also put on activities Millennium Park every Friday, with help from community groups.
Sgt Mark Raby and the Nailsea beat team would like to thank all the organisations who have helped out. Sgt Raby said: “As a result of the activities in the park, antisocial behaviour has dropped significantly in the area.”
The beat team is hoping to build on the success of the event next year.
