Pupils from Kenilworth School provided their time and effort on Saturday March 7th in local service projects organised by Kenilworth and District SI. The youngsters pitched in to plant up tubs in the garden at Newlands Nursing Home and spent some time socialising with the residents there. In a separate project over at Abbey Fields much hard work was done to clean up the information plaques which are scattered over this historic site. The pictures show what one of the plaques looked like before and after its makeover. The chilly conditions were bravely borne by a cheerful group of volunteers who certainly weren’t afraid of getting their hands dirty.
Soroptimists in Kenilworth are joining with young people to show the town what the young community can do. Concerned about the negative image often attributed to young people, they are planning a Saturday of Service when young people will be involved in some voluntary activities of their own choice for the benefit of Kenilworth and its community. The Soroptimist club will give help to plan and support for these projects. There will be a forum for young people to put forward their own ideas at the Kenilworth Youth and Community Centre at Abbey End at 7.00pm on Thursday 29 January 2008. Responses and participation from as many local youth groups as possible will be welcomed to send a really positive message about our young people. If you are interested you can contact the Soroptimists by email on email@example.com.
