A GROUP of young people have completed a project at Trowbridge Town Hall that could help to transform their lives.

The 12-strong group, aged 17 to 25, have refurbished and redecorated two rooms at the Arts Centre in Market Street.

They completed the Prince’s Trust community project for the Learning Curve in Trowbridge with help from the Melksham and Torquay-based training organisation Eat That Frog.

Georgia Elson, the Prince’s Trust project team leader, said: “They have done a fantastic job. I’m over the moon and really proud of what they’ve achieved.”

The group went on an outdoor education team-building course with Encompass Training in Devon before raising £255 for the project.

They were given just two weeks to transform the two rooms, including a clerk’s office on the ground floor and a former courtroom upstairs.

Along the way, they picked up skills that could lead to new careers in the construction industry.

Many are now hoping to find work placements or sign up for practical courses at Wiltshire College.

Along the way, they received donations of materials and equipment from Proper Job, Travis Perkins, Adrian Parrish of Elston Services, Kennet Furniture in Devizes, and WastetoWonder in Colerne.

The Prince’s Trust is now recruiting young people aged 16-25 for a new project starting on January 28.
