Star Project of the Month –  Green Fingered Young People from Keynsham

Young people from Keynsham Town Council’s Time Out Youth Centre have helped Keynsham in Bloom breathe new life into a grey unloved patch of land and old advertising board at Keynsham Railway station this summer.

A new art installation with 8 pieces of art work was created by 12 young people aged 12-17 years old with the support of Severnside Community Rail Partnership. The majority of the young people had never taken part in an art project before and many of the young people are keen to do more. The art work has become a talking point among local people and as a result has had a positive impact on community spirit and pride. To submit your entry for September's 'Star Project of the Month' please request the template from Network@bathareaplayproject.co.uk
