    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.


    For further information please contact:

    The #Olympictorchscotland journey through LBP in pictures 

    This slideshow requires JavaScript.

    The Olympic Torch wound it’s way through thousands of miles of Scottish highways and byways before finally arriving at the Lothian and Borders area. It was enthusiastically welcomed as a  once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Olympic Torch relay.

    Huge crowds turned out in lovely weather to cheer on the torchbearers from near and far. This selection of photos is compiled from our own , those from partner agencies and those sent in by the public, for which we thank you.

    Thanks to everyone in the LBP area for your patience, cooperation and support with this historic event.

      I had a wonderful time both days the torch was in Edinburgh. I enjoyed chatting with some of the police on duty, and loved the motorbike police waving and getting the public cheering. Thanks to everyone for helping to make both days enjoyable.
