Students praised for work

FIVE skilled youngsters had the opportunity to shine when they showed off their impressive landscaping and gardening work at Fleming Court sheltered scheme in March.

The boys (aged 13 and 14) attended a special event to celebrate the successful completion of their communal garden regeneration project as part of a work experience placement with Roddons Housing Association.

The Year 9 students from Neale-Wade Community College, March and Cromwell Community College, Chatteris, spent every Thursday throughout the summer term at the scheme and learned skills including carpentry and laying paving, as well as team building.

The cakes and coffee morning event took place in the flourishing communal garden at Fleming Court sheltered scheme. The proud boys presented their work to residents, their teachers and Roddons staff – who were all impressed with the quality of the work.

All of the boys enjoyed the experience and said they had learned a lot from working together on a project.
