Youngsters dig in to revamp Wordsley Community Centre garden

YOUNG people on a Prince’s Trust charity scheme dug in to give a garden makeover at Wordsley Community Centre.

Students transformed an overgrown garden at the centre at Wordsley Green as part of a 12-week programme, delivered by City of Wolverhampton College.

The team removed waist high weeds, laid a slabbed patio area and planted shrubs to create a relaxing area for use by members of the community.

Prince’s Trust team leader Lisa Blakeway said: “The team worked very hard for two weeks through bad weather, but this didn’t faze them."

Janet Blakeway, Wordsley and District Community Association chairman, added: “The garden has been completed to an extremely high and professional standard, resulting in a beautiful, restful and relaxing garden with patio area.”

The team raised £800 for the project by carrying out bag packs at Sainsbury’s, Amblecote, and Tesco in Dudley . They also held a mask-making stall at the Black Country Boat Festival.

The Prince’s Trust team programme offers unemployed16 to 25 -year-olds chance to learn new skills and improve their confidence and self-esteem through outdoor activities, community work and work experience.
