Teenagers give litter brush-off.

An estate which was once a haven for crime, vandalism and litter is being transformed - by hardworking teenagers. Fed up with being blamed for anti-social behaviour and litter-dropping in Mynachdy, Cardiff, the youngsters have taken part in a massive clean-up, helping residents with odd jobs to show they can be community-minded too.

Their good-deed campaign has been organised and supervised by local Neighbourhood Watch member Andrea Pesticcio, who says their work is changing people's perceptions of youths in Mynachdy.

The clean-up teams have been out over the last two weekends and plan to continue their work in the hope it might help them get a long-awaited youth club. Mrs Pasticcio, 42, said: 'I'm really proud of them and you can see what it means to them when adults congratulate them.

If you can help with sponsoring a youth club, call Andrea on 07879 838254 or 07854 792143.
