The DERIC Youth Bus
Plans are in place to develop further youth provision in the area of Redesdale Shops in Trimdon Grange. The DERIC youth bus (a mobile youth facility) has recently been deployed in the area on Friday evenings. Positive action has also been taken by the neighbourhood policing team in response to calls of anti-social behaviour at the location.
