Residents of Fullers Slade enjoyed a free “Shark Night’ Pool Party in Wolverton on Saturday.
Funding was provided by The England Illegal Money Lending Team, working in partnership with Fullers Slade Resident’s Association.
Wolverton swimming pool was hired to host a shark themed party.
The aim was to raise awareness of the dangers of borrowing from illegal money lenders, commonly known as loan sharks
‘Shark Night’ consisted of a procession by residents holding inflatable sharks to the pool for a swim in shark infested water.
“Loan sharks are known to operate in the area, so raising awareness of the dangers was a serious message delivered in a fun way,” said Jill Dyer from the association.
