A community space in Highbridge has been given a well-deserved makeover as a result of it being a huge asset to the town’s community.

Morland Hall, in Pearce Drive, was chosen as part of The Prince’s Trust team’s project.

This is a 12-week self development programme designed to help young people who are not in education or training give something back.

The programme involves a residential trip, a community project, work experience and a final presentation.

The hall hosts a number of community activities and even has its own room so people with learning disabilities can enjoy a range of things to do.

The team were on-site for eight days and decorated a host of rooms, including four bathrooms and the main hall.

A spokesman for the project said: “In the main hall they designed and painted a woodland and animal-themed mural.

“Their communication and team work improved throughout the project and they persevered when the painting got repetitive.”
