A pilot scheme in Corby to get what's known as "restorative justice" for victims.
A launch was held on May 16 of the Neighbourhood Resolution Forum.
It's been training volunteers to help bring together victims of low-level crimes with perpetrators - in order to make those who commit the crimes see what they have done and potentially apologise.
At Thursday's launch invited guests were told how far along the scheme has come and hear examples
of cases it's handled.
Vintage aircraft of the R.A.F. have been flying high close to Corby.
Thursday's event at Eyebrook Resevoir was one of a number in the country to commermerate seventy years since the famous "Dambusters" raids that helped change the course of Second World War.
Eyebrook Resevoir was built just before the war to serve Corby steelworks - and children from two Corby primary schools were among those invited to see the fly-past.
