Highbridge park tidied by youngsters during 'Dreamscheme' event

Youngsters in Highbridge tidied up the town's Apex Park on Monday (February 16th) as part of a new youth project that encourages them to improve their local community while earning rewards.

Dozens of youngsters are taking part in the Dreamscheme initiative, which sees people aged 8-16 take part in community work and gain points that can be used towards day trips and other activities.

On Monday afternoon, during this week's half-term holidays, the youngsters collected large amounts of rubbish from across Apex, which was then bagged up and taken away.

PCSO Claire Chambers told "It is a great opportunity for the young people of Highbridge to have some fun, whilst contributing to their neighbourhood at the same time."

The Highbridge Dreamscheme has been set up by the Children and Young Persons Sub-Committee of the Local Action Team for Highbridge alongside the Highbridge Police. If you are interested in joining the Highbridge Dreamscheme, see the official website available here.
