Pair join bid for a better environment
CREATING a better place for people to lead happy and healthy lives in the Kingswood and Hazel Leys (KHL) area of Corby is top of the list for two new recruits.
Members of the KHL Big Local Project Partnership have appointed a project officer and a development worker to help support and guide new projects for the communities.
Kingswood and Hazel Leys is one of 150 areas around England that has been awarded one million pounds to spend on local issues. The priorities are to develop services in this area for young people, older and vulnerable residents, people from diverse backgrounds and to create an environment that local people can take pride in.
Karen Eyres is the new project officer. She said: “I am looking forward to working with the partnership and getting to know the residents of Kingswood and Hazel Leys and finding out their views on what is needed in their community.”
Tracey Jones is the new development worker and has previously worked in the Kettering area in youth services. She is familiar with the issues regarding young people wanting opportunities to showcase their capabilities and to feel part of their community.
