Working in more than 20 primary schools across the county, the mini police initiative aims to help children learn about their own safety and wellbeing, and the role of the police.

Children sang Christmas classics and got into the festivities with Santa hats on as they warmed up for the growing crowds.

PCSO Romek Kordecki, mini police lead for Mansfield, said: “Once again the children did a great job and I really enjoyed watching them perform.

“Over the last year my colleagues and I have spent a lot of time with our mini police officers and we are always happy to do so.

“It is important that children learn from an early age that the police are there to help them and engagement events like this are a great way for us to spread that message.”

After the performance the children were treated to a meal at McDonald’s funded by Coun Paul Henshaw's divisional fund.
