The future looks bright for budding creatives from Hertfordshire.
Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service has been working with the Prince’s Trust to deliver a 12 week programme for people aged 16 to 25, who are not in employment, education or training.
The programme encourages groups of young people to complete different community projects across the 12 weeks. The course aims to provide learner with confidence, skills and knowledge as well as a qualification in employability, teamwork and community skills.
The latest group, Team 17, have completed a project at Grovehill Community Centre, in Hemel, where they have decorated and cleaned up the Derek Baulch Hall.
The team were tasked with turning a basic room into a more child-friendly environment as well as a business meeting space.
The group came up with the idea to have a feature wall with triangles of different colours using paint donated from decorating supplier Top Dec.
And, to appeal to children the team decided to create two safari-themed windows. They painted a sunset and a sunrise as the back drops and then used vinyl stickers to add silhouettes of animals and trees.
On completion of the project, a ceremony took place to congratulate Team 17 while certificates were presented to those involved in the centre, including manager Cllr Julie Banks and Cllr Alexander Bhinder.
