A LICENSEE has 'had enough' of anti-social behaviour and criminal activity that is plaguing her town.

Lynda Leigh, of the George and Dragon, in Flint is fundraising for the Prison Me No Way charity to get them to come to a local school and teach children the consequences of their actions.

The Project was set up by three prison officers from HMP Hull in 1993 and has since reached more than 5 million young people. They aim to raise awareness amongst young people, aged 8 to 18, about the causes, consequences, penalties and impact of crime

Lynda told the Leader: "We have a major issue with drugs around the town.

"My main issue is the bench right outside my pub and with this weather we have all the windows open and all we can smell is weed.

"I would prefer the bench to be moved. People go past and they think these people are customers in my pub and they won't come in.

"It's a magnet and it's not just me, other business owners are affected.

"It's definitely gone worse in the last 6 months."

Lynda said she is hosting a charity event on August 24 at the George and Dragon in Flint from 2pm in a bid to raise 3,000.

This will ensure the charity comes out to a local school and delivers a day session with the students.

Lynda added: "They need to learn there's consequences for their actions.

"These groups of children are intimidating and older people living in the flats, they are scared to go out. the kids are running wild.

"Children these days are out carrying knives. People are scared in their own towns.

"The main issue is with the bench and how youths are behaving around the town. I've had enough.

"They are intimidating for young and old and it's not the police's fault, they just don't have the numbers to come out any more.

"I've worked hard to get the business to where it is. It's family friendly."

The event has been inspired by the Greatest Showman and will be circus themed.

Lynda is hoping to get more businesses on board to help out in any way they can.

She told the Leader: "It's disgusting and we as a town have to be proactive to put an end to it before it's too late."
