A group of young people who designed and built a garden at a Kettering school have been recognised for their efforts.

The Prince’s Trust’s Kettering Team 38 won the Lafarge Tarmac Community Impact Award for their work designing and building an eco-garden for the pupils at Grange School.

One of the members of the 13-strong group, Jordon Allen, 16, said: “We are completely over the moon to win this award.

“Working on the project together was brilliant and it meant a lot to us that it would be able to help people in the future.

“The whole team has gained so much from it and we’d do it all over again if we could.”

Team is a 12-week personal development course that gives unemployed young people the skills and confidence to find work.

Another member, Antony Farrow, 25, said: “I didn’t think my team mates would listen to me, so I led by example and I was so chuffed that they followed my instructions and completed their tasks.”
