Chelmsford celebrates positive youth culture; Knife Angel takes a stand against knife crime.
Chelmsford is celebrating positive youth culture and taking a stand against knife crime. The national monument to knife violence comes to Chelmsford's Central Park on 6th September 2021 and a youth award scheme has been launched.
Commented Chelmsford Lib Dem Leader Stephen Robinson, "As part of our aim to deliver a safer Chelmsford, my Lib Dem colleagues have worked hard to secure support to bring the Knife Angel sculpture to Chelmsford.
The huge sculpture is made from thousands of blunted blades and is visiting the city as part of its national education and anti-violence tour. This is the monument's first appearance in Essex and #KnifeAngelChelmsford is being led by youth organisation Keep it 100 Essex.
As a way of marking its stay, Chelmsford will be celebrating positive youth culture. So Keep It 100 Essex (https://twitter.com/keepit100e) is starting new youth awards in the city with top industry support for the winners. The Keep It 100 Youth Awards 2021 will take place on Sunday September 26, and you can nominate right now.
