Teenagers participating in the National Citizen Service (NCS) scheme have revamped a garden at a Grantham care home.

The youngsters spent two weeks at the Apple Trees Care and Reablement Centre,

Arlington Gardens, Grantham, where they set to work planting flowers and vegetables in the garden as well as showing off their creative side by painting a mural of flowers on a shed.

They also raised money to buy hanging baskets full of flowers and new planters for the garden.

Activities co-ordinator JulieMcGrath was delighted with their efforts. She said: They all did a fantastic job to raise the money for everything they needed by hosting a quiz night at The Royal Queen and a cake sale at Apple Trees.”

The NCS is a voluntary personal and social development programme for 15–17 year olds.

The unique four-week programme sees particpants spend time away from home,

embark on exhilarating challenges, volunteer and build skills for work and life.
