As part of Young Bristol’s 2022-25 Strategic Priorities, the charity will be focusing on investing in our infrastructure and resources to give young people and their communities an environment to thrive in.
Recently, Vinci Building offered their time to redevelop the front area at BS14 Stockwood Youth Club. The old fencing was near collapsing and the grass area alongside the car park was over grown and unused.
Vinci’s generous offer meant that the outdoor area could be completely renovated! This included installing new fencing, moving the large container in the car park and adding a well-being garden to the overgrown area.
This area is now a functional space for young people and the wider community. The addition of well-being garden and the new fencing has improved the clubs appearance, making it more inviting for everyone to use.
The well-being garden provides opportunities for young people to learn about their local environment. This space can also help to promote mental well-being and be a great quiet area to unwind and socialise. In the garden, young people can plant their own food and flowers as well as build eco-hubs, which can be a great start to promoting healthy eating and adopting healthy habits.
Thank you to Vinci for offering your time to help improve our outdoor facilities. We would also like to thank the following organisations for your kind support: throughout this process
