Our amazing young people at Space Bridport had a day trip out to clean up and do some litter picking for their local community. Zoe S has written a report of the day alongside pictures taken by Zoe B!
Our Bridport group recently hosted a day out which was a fantastic opportunity for the young people to meet up and have a wonderful time while still making a contribution to the local area. The day turned out to be a delight and was enjoyed thoroughly by all. The group met beside the river at Askers Meadow before beginning our litter pick around the area to make a lovely and tranquil space even nicer for the community.
During the litter pick, we managed to cover multiple areas of field, seating and pathways before taking a well-earned break with a picnic. After our lunch, we began to set off on a walk through the Dorset countryside to West Bay. When we arrived, we began to go crabbing along the harbour. People had loads of fun doing the crabbing as well as naming the crabs after catching them. Dev, a member of the Bridport group, said that he most enjoyed the crabbing as we were all able to have a good laugh. It was a fun and relaxing activity. Ash said that everybody was having fun all day long and they enjoyed it all!
In the late afternoon, to round off the day, we sat together and ate chips and ice cream beside the chip kiosks with a lovely view of the boats docked at the harbour before heading back across the fields and back to the meadow to return home. We were all rewarded with the lovely weather and the smiles on everyone’s faces. Jane, a youth worker with Space Youth Project who came along, said that she really enjoyed being with everyone and seeing everyone have fun. It was a spot-on day.
