Sunderland, Tyne & Wear: Sandra Rowell
After she filmed yobs rampaging through the local park on motorbikes, Sandra Rowell forced the police to take action. She is now busy changing the face of her neighbourhood.
Sandra, 52, says: ‘When I joined Mums’ Army, our local park was overrun by motorbikes and drunken louts in stolen cars.
'After speaking out in the local newspaper and pressuring the police and council, I arranged for park gates to be fitted and made sure that they were locked every night.
‘Because I joined Mums’ Army I now live in a peaceful area. Mums’ Army gives ordinary people a voice loud enough to be heard by those who abuse the law and think they can do what they like. We’re here to stay and we will only get stronger.’
