Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping will be in Newark tomorrow (Thursday 20 February) to see the progress of the Hawtonville Community Pride project, provided by Trent Bridge Community Sports Trust, which has received funding of £4,084 from his Community Safety Grant Scheme 2013-14. As part of his visit he will meet the young people benefiting from the project during the half term.
When: Thursday, 20 February, at 14.00hrs.
Where: Hawtonville Community Centre, St Mary’s Gardens, Newark, NG24 4JQ
The project’s long term objective is to develop a community garden/café based around the redevelopment of the Hawtonville Community Centre. We are funding the first stage of the project, which engages young people from the Hawtonville Estate through an urban art project. The project targets those already known to the local police and ASB Team and other young people.
The project uses art to involve young people in decision making and support them to develop a better environment through the design and production of a community mural which reflects the young people and their community. Local urban artist James Mayle will work with the young people to come up with an appropriate design that reflects the community and links with the development of the community garden/café project. James has been involved in many local Newark Urban Art projects (Sustran Bridges for example). Young people engaged in the project will work towards an ASDAN accreditation in Expressive Arts.
