Prince’s Trust team make a difference at De Clare Court
- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
A group of young people from Pembrokeshire College’s Prince’s Trust Team Programme have cleared an overgrown pathway at De Clare Court in Haverfordwest enabling tenants to enjoy their surroundings.
As part of a community group project, the team worked tirelessly for three days cutting back trees and shrubbery to clear the 200m path. Sherriff of Haverfordwest, Gillian Howell congratulated the group on their hard work, “I am so proud of all of the young people from the Prince’s Trust programme, the work they have done will make such a difference to everyone at De Clare Court. The whole project has been a wonderful example of different organisations coming together for the greater good of the community and I look forward to many more in the future.” Gillian went on to thank the owner of the land, Peter Reynolds who kindly gave the group access to make the improvements.
Amy Williams, Manager of De Clare Court commented, “The pathway looks beautiful now it has been cleared. The tenants are delighted to be able to enjoy their surroundings, thank you to everyone involved.”
The Prince’s Trust Team Programme is delivered in partnership with Pembrokeshire College and runs for 12 weeks to give young people the chance to gain new skills, take a qualification and meet new people. Activities include taking part in a group community project to make a positive difference in their local area, an action packed residential trip, two weeks work experience and the opportunity to develop their English and Maths skills.
Prince’s Trust Team Leader, Steffan James was pleased with the groups’ work, “We had eleven young people in our team this term and they all worked well together and should be proud of a job well done. Unlike other courses, our team worked throughout half term so I am very grateful for their attendance and hard work. Our next programme will start in January and we would like to return to De Clare Court to help develop some of the ideas the residents have to improve the garden area.”
