Tendring Crucial Crew is an annual event organised by Tendring Community Safety Partnership in conjunction with Tendring District Council and provides the opportunity for all 10 to 11 year olds in the district to learn the important lessons on how to keep themselves safe and healthy.
The last Crucial Crew event was held at Valley Farm Holiday Park, Clacton-on-Sea, from the 5th to the 14th of November 2012. The event was very successful and over 1,300 Year 6 pupils from 38 Primary Schools in the district learned some crucial lessons.
This year's event is again being staged at Valley Farm Holiday Park from November 5 to November 15 2013.
