The residents of the Supported Housing for Young People Project, (SHYPP) in Copse Cross Street, Ross-on-Wye, are appealing for local carpenters or builders to help them in their latest project.
They need some help to fit new decking as part of their mini garden makeover. The young residents are working hard to remove moss and weeds, tidy overgrown flower beds and clear a cobbled stone floor to reveal the words ‘December House’, an engraving which is currently hidden under the foliage.
SHYPP have sourced funding for the materials which will transform the garden into an area where they can grow their own vegetables, have flowers and provide a quiet space for support sessions and meetings. It will also be a pleasant outdoor space for tea parties and barbecues. New decking has been purchased and they are now looking for assistance and expertise to make the garden transformation a reality.
Once completed all volunteers and local partners will be invited to their opening tea party to celebrate and enjoy the new garden. If you would like to join them and can volunteer your time and expertise, please contact Alec Hoskins or Kirsty Cotterrell at SHYPP on 01989 568924.
SHYPP provides accommodation for 16-25 year olds across Herefordshire who have been homeless, or are at risk of homelessness, and are supported with housing, training and employment.
In the last four years SHYPP has helped over 1,200 young people across the county through supported accommodation and outreach support. By supporting SHYPP you could help the young people of Ross to achieve and thrive.
