Prince's Trust group's clean up in Fishersgate
3:55pm Friday 1st March 2013 in News
Jobless young people from Sussex picked up new skills and a qualification thanks to a scheme.
Sixteen people aged between 16 and 25 took part in Shoreham’s Prince’s Trust Scheme.
They helped rejuvenate the area around Fishersgate’s community centre, planting bulbs, digging and laying flowers.
Vicki Lee, deputy team leader for the scheme, said they worked brilliantly.
“They worked on the garden and now it looks really good,” she said. “It has been totally regenerated and will be used by the community.
"They got a lot out of it and also learnt new skills and improved their CV.”
The scheme is run by Vicki and Frank Fallon. A new one will start in May and will be open to jobless people aged 16 to 25 in the area.
If you would like to take part – you will not lose your benefits and expenses are paid – please call Frank on 07841 066849.
