3pm 05.09.07 - A NEW music and media bus for young people will arrive at 5pm tomorrow (Fri) at Wrington Recreation Ground.

The bus, called Ellie, is a result of a funding bid to the Youth Opportunity Fund in North Somerset 15-year-old Ellie Silk from Redhill. The award was for £1,200 for the mobile project.

Along with her friends, Ellie has designed and helped create a bus that offers young people the opportunity to participate in educational activities with a particular focus around music and media.

The bus will be equipped with musical instruments, computers with internet access and a mixing deck.
