Young people aged 8 to 16 in Bradley Stoke are being invited to earn rewards by taking part in a community project over the summer holidays.
The Dreamscheme programme is a youth volunteering scheme that gets young people involved in their community and rewards them with points that can be used for trips or rewards.
WORK = POINTS = REWARDS (1 hour = 10 points)
Work activities that have previously been carried out by Dreamschemers includes, gardening, car washing, leaflet dropping, bulb planting, litter picking and bag packing.
Reward activities have included swimming, bowling, cinema, pizza meals, games in the park and horse riding.
The latest project involves working with an artist to help design and spray paint a large piece of community graffiti art that will be placed at the Bradley Stoke Skate Park, near the Leisure Centre.
The work will take place on the following dates:
- Thursday/Friday 9th/10th August from 9:45am to 1pm
- Monday/Tuesday 13th/14th August from 9:45 to 3pm
Anyone wishing to take part is invited to contact Winsome Barrett-Muir of Southern Brooks Community Partnership on 01454 868570.
