Lincoln youths give Boultham Park a spring clean

Boultham Park clean-up: Young graduates of the National Citizen Service helped clean-up Boultham Park.

Young graduates of the National Citizen Service (NCS) were joined by Lincoln MP Karl McCartney as they took part in a Boultham Park clean-up.

The NCS Action Day on March 29 was part of a national social action programme to make a difference in communities.

Graduates from the programme got together to help Linkage Trust with the start of renovation work at the park.

Lincoln is one of 19 NCS locations across the country where 15 and 17 year-olds can take part in a three week full-time programme focussed around fun, discovery and community projects.

Zoe Kettleborough, a Lincoln 17-year old, said: “I decided to support NCS Action Day because I thought it would be a great way to give back to the community, as well as being an opportunity to see old friends again.”

Speaking about the success of the Boultham Park project in Lincoln, NCS project manager Sarah Holmes added: “The work that’s been done in Boultham Park today goes to show what we can achieve, even in a short space of time, when we take a hands on approach to tackling issues in our community that effect us all.”
