The City kids R OK

The Comet is launching a project aimed at challenging the negative stereotypes of young people in Letchworth.

THE Comet is delighted to launch City Kids R OK, an exciting project led by North Herts District Council in partnership with North Herts Homes and North Herts Safer Neighbourhood Police Team, Letchworth ESCO and Khalsa Football Academy.

The project is to challenge negative stereotypes of young people in Letchworth Garden City and show the good work that they do in the community.

It will support young people between the ages of 11 and 17 who make a positive contribution to their local community.

These contributions along with participants’ artistic representations of Young People Today: Perception and Reality will be judged, in two separate categories, by the Comet on September 18 at a celebration event hosted by City Kids R OK and The Khalsa Football Academy.

Any young person interested in finding out more can contact
