    Street 5 a Side Football #Craigshill and #Blackburn West Lothian #CashbackforCommunities 

    Lothian and  Borders Police West Lothian Community Teams are working with our partner agencies to develop and support youth diversionary activities during the summer holidays.  These provide young people in our communities with engaging activities that promote community well being and prevent antisocial behaviour and helps keep young people ‘off the street’.

    Street Football

    One such activity is the Summer Street Football.  This is a free 5-a-side football programme for boys and girls aged 12 to 17.

    This has been funded by the ‘Cashback for Communities’ project which is an initiative that reinvests proceeds of crime back into communities in partnership with the Scottish Football Association and the Scottish Government.

    Your Community Officers have been working with Craig Bodel, West Lothian Council Sports and Education Officer, Blackburn United FC and Craigshill Thistle FC and are please be running the Street Football at:


    • Fridays 13 July – 17 August
    • 3:00 – 4:30pm
    • Grass area beside the Health Centre on Ash Grove


    • Thursdays 12 July – 16 August
    • 3:00 – 4:30pm
    • Craigshill Astro Turf beside Craigsfarm


    Please come along to these events where you can play five-a-side with your local Community Officers.
