City Kids R OK
GIVING the youth of today a better public image took another step forward when members of City Kids R OK took to the streets of Letchworth GC on Tuesday afternoon.
The event was to illustrate that not all hoodies pose a threat. Pictures of the group were taken by Hitchin photographer Derek George to reflect public reaction to groups of youths gathered on streets in our community.
“The event went very well and the kids enjoyed it,” said project co-ordinator Jo Kelly.
“There was also good reaction from the public to what we are doing.”
City Kids R OK was launched in June and supported by the Comet, North Herts District Council, North Herts Homes, North Herts Safer Neighbourhood Police Team, Letchworth ESCO and The Khalsa Football Academy.

The project has been to challenge negative stereotypes of young people in Letchworth GC and show the good work they do in the community.
Many of the photographs from Tuesday’s event and canvases the children have painted will go on show at a competition judged by the Comet at the Fearnhill Sports Centre on September 18 when there will also be a soccer youth camp hosted by The Khalsa Football Academy.
