A PROPOSAL to set up a drug awareness group was outlined to members of Buntingford Town Council. Ann Bullen, of White Hart Close, Buntingford, presented an initiative provided by the charity Care for the Family, called How to Drug Proof Your Kids. The course aims to steer children between eight and 12 away from drugs. Mrs Bullen said: "Peer pressure is so powerful. "The initiative is about our community finding a way to counter-act the drug problem in the town. "Parents who are aware of the drug problems in the area will be offered help and advice. "Cllr Pat Whittaker said: "The problem starts way before children are out causing trouble. This sounds promising." Council members will be looking at the initiative at a meeting of the resources committee. School governors from Layston First School and Millfield School in Buntingford will also be discussing the initiative.
