Green Team’s double celebration

A GROUP of youngsters have been celebrating the success of a youth scheme after gaining employment.

The Green Team, made up of five young people not in education, employment, or training, marked the completion of the 16-week voluntary project run by Groundwork Hertfordshire and North Hertfordshire Homes with a ceremony in Letchworth GC.

The event was cause for a double celebration with the announcement that four members are now in paid work.

The team joined with staff from both organisations for the celebration, returning to North Hertfordshire Homes’ Langleigh sheltered housing scheme in the town where they landscaped the gardens and erected a pergola seating area.

“The personal development and confidence that the course has instilled in all the participants is remarkable,” said Glenn Adam, manager of the Green Team.
