4th Community Day - Greenwood Park

Sports coaches from St Albans City Youth were invited to Greenwood Park last Friday, part of St Albans City Youth "Work in the Community" at the various Sports venues across the St Albans District.

The picture shows students from Oakland's College gaining some valuable work experience. This time they were invited to undertake some Hedge Planting. The students enjoyed the work and were able to work as a team and plant over 300 shrubs and make a natural boundary to the new allotments recently created at Greenwood Park.

"We had great fun and clearly made a difference" said Tom Ward a Community Coach from St Albans City Youth. 

Thanks go to Jane Roskilly from Leisure Connection and the staff at Greenwood Park for supporting the activities. Also thank you to Hertfordshire County Council Aiming High Fund for supporting the staff education that will leave a legacy of trained staff for the future.
