Yesterday I joined Olympic Swimmer, Adam Whitehead at the Witney (Oxfordshire) National Citizens Service, Community Residential.
This part of the NCS is all about the young people getting stuck in, learning about teamwork and starting to think about how they can best support the local community with their Community Project.
We started the day with a drumming workshop. I am not an accomplished or confident musician, in fact I am not a musician at all and the thought of playing an instrument in front of anyone is daunting for me, but the workshop was more fun than I could have imagined and parallels to our role in society were cleverly drawn upon by the instructor.
The tents were all packed up, workshops on planning and teamwork, logo design and teeshirt painting were given.
Next week the 16 year old school leavers will get together and organise meetings to decide on and plan their Community Project. Hopefully we have given them the resources to make it happen!
I have had so much fun representing DKH Legacy Trust working on the National Citizens Service, and working with the same group and seeing their development gives me real pleasure. I can't wait to get involved with their Community Project.
