We are proud to announce that the Stronger Neighbourhoods Initiative for New Lodge and Athersley (SNI) have achieved national recognition after collecting two prestigious awards at the National Neighbourhood Management Awards 2009. Our very own designers Heather and Leanne, who have worked closely with the team over the past few years, helping them on the road to success were delighted to be invited along to offer their support and of course join in with the celebratory drinks!

The awards were picked up for ‘Best Community Safety Initiative’ for the innovative use of Community Liaison Wardens who work closely with young people and adults to reduce anti-social behaviour and crime and the biggy of the evening ‘National Neighbourhood Management Team of the Year’. Judges commended the impact which the SNI had achieved in a short time by reducing anti-social behaviour by 90% and crime by 61% in just over two years.

We have been working with the SNI to produce numerous successful campaigns, such as the Clean and Tidy Agreement, Healthy Living Pack and Residential Pack, plus regular Newsletters, all aimed at bringing the community together, informing them of the services available and making the local area a better place to work and live.

“This is a fantastic recognition of the hard work of the past three years. This is not just an award for the SNI team but for the wider team of residents, services and local councillors who have worked with us to bring about the impact we’ve had. I would like to say a huge `thank you’ to everyone involved.’’

Kate Faulkes – SNI Neighbourhood Manager

“I just wanted to make sure you know how chuffed we are with the products – and how generally chuffed and lucky we are to have a local business on our doorstep that can produce such great quality work.”

Marcia Haigh – SNI Neighbourhood Development Officer
