YOUNG people from Northam and Westward Ho! Youth Club have won a �500 Crime Beat Award from Devon and Cornwall Police to help them clean up the area around their Pavilion Youth Club in Westward Ho! and to rebuild the resort's crazy golf pitch.

The project has so impressed the police that the High Sheriff, Mrs E d' Erlanger, will be visiting the youth club next Monday.

The young people have so far weeded and cleared turf from the area around the crazy golf and during Easter they held a sponsored walk. The aim of the walk was to explore the coast path and raise money to help with their clean up activities around the tennis courts on Golf Links road.

The group collected �100 in sponsorship and are still keen to hear from residents in Westward Ho! who can make a donation.

"We are asking for plants and seeds to brighten up the area around our youth club as well as cash," said club chairman Sam Ford, 15.

"We have already been promised some garden centre tokens, which will help loads".
