backs Dreamscheme's project to make Highbridge bloom
MP took a brief break from the election campaign on Thursday (April
8th) to support Highbridge Dreamscheme's latest project.
Heathcoat-Amory dropped in at Sanders Garden World in Brent Knoll
to visit dozens of young people from the Dreamscheme who were
planting up hanging baskets to be distributed around Highbridge.
Peter Burks, General Manager of Sanders Garden World, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"Our horticultural staff helped the youngsters to plant red,
white and blue flowers in 100 baskets to commemorate the 70th
anniversary of the Battle of Britain."
"After one month, the baskets will be distributed to houses
and shops along Church Street and Market Street in Highbridge
to help with the towns Britain in Bloom efforts. We have
also donated £600 towards the cost of the baskets."
The mission of the Dreamscheme Network is to inspire and enable
communities across the world to realise the potential of their
young people. Youngsters who complete work projects can earn points
to spend on trips and sporting activities of their choice.
The Highbridge Dreamscheme was set up in January 2009 by Police
Community Support Officers in partnership with the Local Action
Team for Highbridge. There
are now more than 100 young people involved in the scheme, who
have collectively completed more than 1,300 hours of community
work in Highbridge.
