Second dreamscheme gets under way

Hope for Belper’s second Dreamscheme project got under way today .

This year’s scheme, which follows the successful project in the Whitemoor area last August, is based on the town’s Parks Estate and will run until Friday.

The scheme was promoted through assemblies at Belper School and the first 20 intrepid young people to return the booking form have been allocated a place.

Much of the work of this year’s scheme will be taking place in and around the Family Centre on Alder Road, with the young people aiming to provide a facelift for the garden.

“The main idea behind Dreamscheme is that young people can do wonderful things! Too often we hear the opposite,” says H4B chairman Gareth Greenwood

“Dreamscheme gives young people an opportunity to have fun together in a safe and supervised context doing things that benefit the community. They learn new skills, achieve news goals and build their confidence and self esteem.”

As well as the landcsaping work around the Family Centre, the group of 20 young people will also be organising a community BBQ.

We’ll let you know how they get on.
