Being a good citizen is very important. A good citizen is normally the type of person who works hard, helps others and respects the law. When reading newspapers or listening to the radio or watching TV, often it is the activities of bad citizens that are publicised. Usually this means that crimes or poor behaviour are reported because they make exciting news. However, we must remember that most people are very good citizens.

There is plenty of good news that could be reported every day but the TV and Radio presenters often ignore these stories.

Good stories could be:

The rescue of a family from a house fire.
A local charity collecting money and buying equipment for a local hospital.
A local community helping old age pensioners by doing their weekly shopping.

   
 
 

In the space below write a story about a good citizen that you think would be worth reporting in the local press (local newspaper, local radio or regional TV).The story can be fact or fiction.
