Bonfire Night scheme to keep kids off streets
An innovative project is being launched in Gainsborough to keep 40 young people off the streets for one evening a week in the run-up to Bonfire Night.
Gainsborough Firecracker, now in its fourth year, is providing a wide range of activities – ranging from spray painting and nail art to cookery and bird box making.
All the participants at the event, being hosted by Acis Housing in the Park Springs Community Centre, will also get a free hot meal and a drink.
It is being held for 11 to 16-year-olds every Friday for five weeks until November 1 between 7pm and 9pm.

Acis resident involvement officer Lucy Picksley said: "The scheme aims to tackle the issues of increased crime and antisocial behaviour during this period by engaging with local youngsters.
"The idea is to get young people off the streets and involved in fun activities in a safe environment.
"The success of Firecracker during the last three years has been fantastic and we are delighted to be hosting another event.
"And the latest promises to be bigger and better than the last."
Acis has teamed up with West Lindsey District Council, Lincolnshire County Council, Positive Futures and other partners including Lincolnshire Police and the fire and rescue service to run the Firecracker initiative.
