A YOUTH group in Weston, which aims to raise the aspirations of youngsters, gave school pupils from across the area the chance to improve their building skills.

Kewstoke Youth Community Farm welcomed children aged eight to 12 at an event run by EOTAS (Education Other Than At School) which was designed to get them working and learning together as a team.

Children also met animals and enjoyed a barbecue at the event in the grounds of the Cygnet Hospital, off Beach Road in Sand Bay.

The community farm was also handed money in the Mercury’s Go Kids Go! campaign this year.

Project manager Jackie Kelleher said: “The children had a good time and also learned new skills.”
