Local lads muck-in to improve access at Penrose

On Wednesday this week a group of Helston Community College students arrived at Penrose with a mission; continue their fantastic work upgrading the pathways, to allow access particularly for Motorbility Scooters, pushchairs and prams.

The boys, who were supervised and led by officers from RNAS Culdrose, Lt Neil Laing and Firefighter Mark Skinner, were members of the Phoenix Project, a partnership between Helston College, Culdrose and the National Trust, which enables students to learn the value of contributing to the community.

This week the boys were continuing the work to dig out and lay a wheelchair grade path, to allow users to reach parts of Penrose that were previously inaccesssible.
Karen Harvey, Student Support Officer with the college, was really pleased with the progress made by the boys.    " They have come on in leaps and bounds since they started working with the Trust so its a project that benefits us all".

The boys will continue working on the path after Christmas and will also be working to restore a pond and build a bench.
