A room in the church hall of ChristChurch has been given a fresh lick of paint by volunteers signed up to the National Citizen Scheme.

The Parlour is a room at the Finkin Street church which had not been touched for 30 years. Now, it has been transformed - and the volunteers behind it say they enjoyed the experience.

Henry Scott, 16, of Aslockton, has been working on the project. He said: “The best part of the social action project has been seeing the community’s reaction to what we’re doing. They’ve been extremely supportive and appreciative of the time we’re spending giving back.”

Amy Rawson, a 17-year-old Grantham student, added: “Meeting new people and making new friends have definitely been the best part of NCS. Plus my confidence has grown a lot since starting the programme.

“I’ve also built my teamwork skills – especially during the raft-building activity during adventure week.

“If I hadn’t joined NCS, I don’t think I’d have done very much with my summer – probably just sitting at home or hanging around town.

“Instead, I’ve built my 
confidence, made new friends and picked up loads of new skills.”
