Throughout the 6 weeks, Officers, Sefton Council (including Active Sefton sports and fitness service) and local housing agencies, will all carry out a number of initiatives and activities in the area of Hornby Road, Peel Road, Akenside Street and Gray Street.  These will include:-

Cleaning of alleys and streets in the area, who have been affected by fly-tipping, graffiti, dog fouling and graffiti.

Adult classes at Linacre Hub, Linacre Road, every Wednesday, commencing 6 June 2016, between 6pm to 8pm.

Active Sefton are offering 50% off sporting activities during the half term programme:- 'Be Active' for children participating in the Respect programme.

Street Games programme will also commence late June, in the area, giving children and young people (aged 8+) the opportunity to get more active by taking part in a range of sports including football, basketball and fitness sessions for FREE.

Information leaflets being distributed to local residents.

St Monica's Headmaster Paul Kinsella said:- "This community fun day is a lovely way to launch our 90th birthday celebrations and show local residents, Councillors all the great things going on around the school."

Bootle Neighbourhood Inspector Ian Jones said:- "These activities and events are all about a community working together to improve the streets in which we live and work, making them cleaner, safer and a place to be prouder of. Anti-social behaviour, graffiti, dog fouling and littering have a major impact on the quality of life of residents, and we are determined to use all our powers to tackle these issues. The events and offers being put on are also a great opportunity for people, young and old, to get more involved in their local community, be it through classes, sports and community events. We always welcome information from the community on crime, anti-social behaviour and other issues, so I would encourage residents to engage with us and help us tackle the problems affecting you. People can give us information in a number of ways, either through speaking to their Neighbourhood Officers, calling 101, or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. I would also encourage people to register with our new, free community messaging service Mersey Now, where we can keep you updated on community news and crime prevention advice."

Cllr Trish Hardy, Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing, said:- "We have been working closely with partners such as Merseyside Police for some time as we look to tackle anti-social behaviour and create safe, inclusive communities in the borough. The launch of Operation Respect is shaping up to be a great day and I am delighted that our Active Sefton team will be delivering some of their hugely popular sessions on the day. The events organised as part of Operation Respect are open to all, young and old, in the community and I look forward to seeing everyone at the launch event."
