Guildford Youth Affairs Officer, PC Clare Jones,said: We take incidents of bullying in our schools very seriously and have organised the roadshow to raise awareness of the issue. It is aimed at parents and young people who are or have been the targets of bullies, but also at those young people who may have bullied other people.'
