Aged 14-17 and looking for something to do this summer?..

We have a great opportunity for 14-17 year olds this summer to design, create pieces from reclaimed wood and market and sell their pieces. A great CV builder!


Do you fancy seeing if  you have a talent for  making things out of wood? Want experience of setting up and running a social enterprise? We will help you with decision making and design, support you to create your pieces, including showing you how to use tools and machinery, and will then help you with the process of setting up a social enterprise and selling your items (with proceeds coming back into the charity). This is a great opportunity to develop a new creative talent and add business skills to your CV. Come along to the first session to find out more and help develop ideas for what to
build.

The Summer Reading Challenge starts at the end of July and children will be encouraged to read at least six library books they like – novels, fact books, joke books, e-books or audio books, they all count!
