Department for Education visit Catch22 NCS in Doncaster
13 August 2012
On Thursday 9 August, young people taking part in Catch22 National Citizen Service partnership service with Doncaster Positive Futures welcomed guests from the Department for Education to their Social Action Project.
Fiona Parkin, John Thompson, Kevin Stringer and Nikki Chowdry witnessed the fantastic work undertaken by the group to entirely renovate a local village hall for the benefit of the whole community. The project began with a presentation to the village hall committee about their plans for the space. Once given the green light, the young people secured donations from local businesses in the form of paint, toilets, carpets and mirrors and have started work with two tradesmen from a local company and a community artist to transform the space.
So far, the main hall and separate community room have been redecorated and carpeted, a new staging area has been built and the grounds have been tidied up. The week will finish with a launch event organised by the group, showcasing their work and bringing together the community in order to hand the newly transformed hall back to the village.
