STUDENTS from North Devon College helping the fight against anti-social behaviour in the region.They have been working with the Safer North Devon crime reduction partnership group on the design and content of a leaflet to be launched next week.The first-year BTEC Public Services students have been helping to make sure the information in the leaflet is useful and relevant to 10-17-year-olds.They were also asked to look at key design features such as images, fonts and colour schemes.Before embarking on the projects, the students met police and Safer North Devon representatives to understand more about anti-social behaviour.They then did their own research to design and produce the leaflets summarising points they considered most relevant.Kate Morne, of Safer North Devon, said: "A number of students came back with excellent design ideas and it was clear that, by consulting young people, we gained a better understanding of what they wanted to know about ASB (anti-social behaviour)."College lecturer Abi Mandeville said: "The students really enjoyed being involved in something bigger than just their studies and are very proud of themselves for making a difference to their community."It was great that Safer North Devon gave the students the opportunity to add their point of view to this process and I am very pleased with the contribution them made."The leaflet will be launched next Thursday at North Devon College.
