Twelve Duke Of Edinburgh participants helped out at a working farm on the Isle of Man,as part of their efforts to achieve the award.

They completed a hard working five day voluntary work residential with the Manx Heritage Project at Creg Neash visitors centre.

The centre is a working farm which shows how the manx people lived over 150 years ago. This is the seventh year we have worked in partnership with the Manx Heritage Project.

Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for Children, Young People and Families, Tom McInerney, said: “The project is so pleased with the work our young people completed for them ie renovating wells, willow gardens and crofter cottages that they have been invited back.

“They will will work at various heritage sites across the island including Castle Rushen, which is one of the worlds most finely preserved medieval castles next year to carry out our volunteering.”

The Duke of Edinburgh Award and Halton Mayors Award programmes in Halton are organised by Young Addaction on behalf of Halton’s Children’s Trust and Halton Borough Council as part of an on-going commitment to improve opportunities for all children and young people living in the borough.
